PRESS RELEASE -- GearPoker.com proudly announces the launch of a new online poker room, 'geared' for success. Officially launched December 6th, 2007, GearPoker is an innovative online poker room, offering more than the standard variety of gaming. Members will find other online poker games not commonly found, along with special bonus offers for the duration of its inaugural month.
GearPoker is geared towards young, up and coming online poker players with most of its clientele coming from Europe and North America. Players compete against other players from around the world, for real money or just for fun, as the new online poker room provides a safe, fair and fun environment for all.
The game variety at GearPoker consists of the standard selections - Texas Hold'em, Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo, 7 Card Stud and 7 Card Stud Hi/Lo, plus a few other additions not commonly found in online poker rooms. Guts Poker and Survivor Guts Poker, Chinese Poker, Big 2 Poker and Pan (short for Panguingue), makeup the extended variety of online poker games.
Guts Poker is an intriguing online poker game where players ante, then receive 3 cards. Each player decides whether to stay in the pot or fold. The highest 3-card hand wins, and those who folded must ante the amount of the last pot to play in the next hand. In the 'Survivor' version of Guts Poker, only the lowest losing hand must patch the pot to ante.
A full schedule of tournaments can be found at GearPoker in heads-up, short handed and full table varieties. Freerolls are held several times a day with regular prizes ranging from $50 to $200 on weekdays, up to $400 on Sunday and Saturday. Sit'n'go tournaments, multi-stage tournaments and multi-table tournaments occur often with buy-ins starting as low as $1. Especially popular are 'I Got THESHERIFF' Bounty Tournaments, held each Monday and Wednesday as members attempt to take down the manager of the cardroom, Sean 'THESHERIFF' Harris.
As a part of the online poker room's grand opening, a special bonus offer has been provided to new players for the month of December 2007. First time depositors ($10.00 minimum) will receive a 100% matching bonus up to $2,500, with 45 days to collect 12 POP (player option points) per bonus $1.
