NFL Super Bowl freeroll at Carbon Poker
The 2014 NFL season may only be in week 3, with too little time played to know which teams will make it to the playoffs let alone the Super Bowl, but this is one promotion no fan will want to miss out on!
To get yourself there, all you have to do is correctly pick the winning team of a 2014 Monday Night Football game across the 17-week regular season schedule, then dominate on the poker table. It’s as easy as that. Not to mention, you can pick on multiple weeks thus giving you a bigger chance at winning.
How Do I Enter?
All you have to do is sign-up or login to your Carbon Poker account where you’ll find the “Game of the Day” feature. Correctly submit your pick for any Monday Night Football game this season, and face off against the other winners in a Tuesday night freeroll.
Freeroll Details & Prizes
Just pick a straight up winner and you’ll be eligible for a weekly freeroll! The top 25 finishers in each weekly tournament will win a $10 free sports bet to use at Carbon Sports!
But if you manage to finish in the top 3 of the weekly Super Bowl Freerolls, you’ll automatically be entered into the online poker room’s Super Bowl Championship Freeroll, taking place on Sunday December 28th at 20:00 Server Time. Win the Championship Freeroll and you will be awarded with two tickets to Super XLIX in Arizona plus $2,000 in cash!
In addition, if you finish in the Top 3 multiple times you will enter the final freeroll with a larger starting chip stack. Every week you finish in the Top 3 of the weekly freeroll, 1,500 chips will be added to your final starting stack!

The World Series of Poker released its list of 10 nominees for the 2014 Poker Hall of Fame on Tuesday, and it includes first-time and returning candidates alike.
The finalists were once again nominated by the public, making it the sixth straight year it’s been done that way, and the list includes five returning candidates and five first-timers. Poker top-dog Daniel Negreanu leads the band of newcomers in his first year of eligibility.
Each candidate is voted for based on the following criteria:
- Be a minimum age of 40 year old at the time of nomination
- A player must have played poker against acknowledged top competition
- Played for high staked
- Played consistently well, gaining the respect of peers
- Stood the test of time
- Or, for non-players, contributed to the overall growth and success of the game of poker, with indelible positive and lasting results.
Other first-time nominees include Frenchman Bruno Fitoussi, 1975 WSOP Main Event runner-up Bob Hooks, six-time WSOP gold bracelet winner Ted Forrest, and respected tournament director Jack McClelland.
The five returning nominees are Jennifer Harman, Humberto Brenes, Mike Matusow, Chris Bjorin, and Huck Seed.
It is now in the hands of the 21 living Hall of Fame members and 20-member media panel to cast their votes for the newest member/s before the October 10 deadline.
Up to two of the 10 nominees will soon join an elite list of Poker Hall of Famers that includes the likes of Johnny Moss, Doyle Brunson, Benny Binion, David “Chip” Reese, Thomas Auston “Amarillo Slim” Preston, Stu Ungar, and Phil Hellmuth. Last year, both Scotty Nguyen and Tom McEvoy were voted to join the prestigious club.
The 2014 Poker Hall of Fame class will be inducted as part of the WSOP Main Event final table festivities at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas during a special ceremony on Sunday, Nov. 9.
Negreanu’s nomination is an accomplishment in and of itself, considering it was the very first year he could be nominated, but he may miss out due to being younger and still very much in the game. He could still have some of the best wins ahead of him, and members may wait to see those. Either way, keep checking poker.com to learn which lucky player/s is inducted.
If you want to play your own hand of poker, head on over to Bovada Poker – the best online poker room for players in the United States. With heaps of tournaments to enter (including WSOP-sponsored ones), and promotions galore to help you win bigger you’ll never want to play your hand anywhere else.
