True Poker is offering a variety of rewards for winning with Aces and Eights, the Dead Man’s Hand. These vary from tournament tickets, to bigger tournament tickets, to bonuses, to bigger bonuses, to freerolls!

Every player winning with a Dead Man’s Hand under this promotion also wins a FREEROLL SEAT to our special $1,000 Halloween Freeroll tournament on Halloween, October 31st at 8pm EST.

There is some fine print:

Qualifiyng week starts from Sunday to Saturday

The Dead Man’s Hand is a two-pair Hold’em Poker hand, namely “Aces and Eights”. A qualifying hand requires the player to hold pocket cards of Ace and eight suited or off suit to qualify for this promo.

Only hands winning the pot at Showdown on real money Hold’em cash game tables at blinds of levels of $0.50/$1.00 or higher qualify. Heads Up play does not qualify, there must be a minimum of three players dealt in. Winning an uncontested hand (all opponents folded) pre-flop, on the flop, turn or the river will not qualify you for this promotion.

Players receiving prizes from the Dead Man’s Hand promo will automatically be tracked and paid. Tournament entries will be given for the following weekly events ($1500 Guaranteed or $6,000 Guaranteed), scheduled on our tournaments calendar. Confirmation of registration will be provided via email. Should a player be unable to play in the event for which they are scheduled, they should contact our Customer Service Staff at support@truepoker.com to arrange an alternate date to play.

All prizes will be credited to the player’s account within 24 hours of the hand completion, following a review to confirm the qualifing hand.

All qualifying hands for Dead Man’s Hand bonuses are subject to game play checks. Should there be evidence found of collusion or chip dumping, the claim will become invalid and the player accounts closed in accordance with our House Rules.
