About Judy

As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

'World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions' (X360) Announced

by Judy on May 8, 2006 @ 11:26 a.m. PDT

World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions takes a story-based approach as it puts players on the Circuit as a newly turned poker pro and under the wing of Chris “Jesus” Ferguson as his protégé. Players will test their skills against the world’s best poker pros in the premier Circuit Events in hopes of qualifying for the winner-take-all, invitation-only Tournament of Champions at the Rio Resort in Las Vegas. Along the way, players will face-off against more top pros than ever before, including: Joseph Hachem, the 2006 World Series of Poker Main Event Champion; Jennifer Tilly, the Academy Award nominated actress and World Series of Poker bracelet holder, and many others in hopes of bringing home the Tournament of Champions trophy.

Additionally, Activision and Microsoft will launch the "Play with the Big Boys Sweepstakes," giving consumers the chance to win a trip to the World Series of Poker event in Las Vegas, Nevada and the opportunity to play for the Grand Prize -- a seat at the $10,000 Main Event.

To enter the sweepstakes, U.S. residents 21 years and older can log on to www.xboxpokersweeps.com between May 10 and June 16. Additionally, attendees at the E3 Expo, which is being held at the L.A. Convention Center from May 10-12, can enter at the World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions kiosk in the Activision booth, located in the South Hall, #1200.

Six prize winners will be randomly selected to receive a three-day/two night trip to the 2006 World Series of Poker event in Las Vegas, Nevada, where they will have the opportunity to compete in a virtual game of No-Limit Texas Hold 'Em in Activision's World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions game on Xbox 360 for the Grand Prize -- a seat at the $10,000 Main Event. Contest and sweepstakes participants can view the official rules at www.xboxpokersweeps.com.

World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions features an immersive storyline that casts players as a newly turned poker pro building his career under the tutelage of Chris "Jesus" Ferguson, learning strategies and tips directly from one of the world's foremost poker pros. Gamers advance their career by competing against top pros in the premiere Circuit Events in hopes of qualifying for the winner-take-all, invitation-only Tournament of Champions, which is held at the Rio Resort Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. The game will be available this fall for the Xbox 360, as well as other platforms.

"This is the most authentic and realistic World Series of Poker video game to ever hit the shelves," said Jeffrey Pollack, commissioner of the World Series of Poker and vice present of Sports & Entertainment Marketing for Harrah's Entertainment. "Activision has again innovated for the benefit of poker players, our media partners, and, most importantly, World Series of Poker fans around the world."
