Let Us Entertain You at Cool Hand Poker

If the name sounds familiar, it certainly should. Cool Hand Poker is modeled after Cool Hand Luke, one of the most iconic characters in American cinema. He was a man that was known for being a loose cannon, but he was also a man that most definitely knew how to have fun. It is in that spirit that Cool Hand Poker operates and for this reason many of the prizes that they offer in tournaments are a bit unorthodox.

A good example of this is “Let Us Entertain You,” a tournament that is part of the November 2009 promotional offerings from the Cool Hand Poker website.

The tournament finale for this promotion takes place on November 25th and is currently in place for a start time of 1900 GMT. You can buy into the tournament for $5 + $0.50 and during the first hour of play you have as many $1 rebuys as you would like to make. With levels increasing every five minutes however, those rebuys will not be worth a whole lot before too long, forcing you to buy more of them each time you decide you’d like to enter the fray again.

The winner of the tournament will end up with a voucher for $500. This voucher is good for any entertainment event that they would like to attend. You can go see the band of your choice or attend any other live event that falls into the price range of the voucher that you can win.

The best part of this is that throughout the rest of November, satellite tournaments will be available two times a day up until the finale begins. You can get into a satellite for $0.50 and you can purchase rebuys during satellite events as well.

Due to the unorthodox nature of the top prize being offered in this tournament, there are many at Cool Hand Poker that feel that this particular promotion will put them on the map. They are a minor website right now, but if promotions like this become really popular, that could certainly change in a hurry.
