Poker Pro Mark Herron places winning bid as penny auction site sells GUKPT seat for lowest price ever
9 September 2010 (London, UK) – A GUKPT package valued at over £1000 sold for only $3.18 at online poker penny auction site Bidibot.com last weekend. Poker pro Mark Herron placed the winning bid for the Grovesnor UK Poker Tour tournament package.
Bidibot.com enables poker players to bid on unique poker tournament and poker site credits worth up to tens of thousands of pounds for as little as a penny, with the last unique bid being credited with the auction piece.
Auction-winner Herron said he was ready to invest much more to claim the seat.
“I have now won over $5,000 worth of prizes on Bidibot.com, including the seat and all for only $1,000 investment – it’s very, very sick,” he said. “I intended to take a shot at it and was willing to invest quite a bit to win it. I was confident I would win but never did I imagine it would be for so little! I had about 50 bids left and was willing to deposit another 500 to go for the seat.”
Bidibot CEO, John Tabatabai said, “The GUKPT auction was extremely popular and is a taste of the kind of packages players can expect at Bidibot.com. We created this site to offer the kind of real value to players that they’d be unable to find elsewhere. This is something we’re very proud of, and well done to Mark for claiming what is a superb value prize.”
Packages from industry giants 888.com, VictoryPoker and Betfair are among the valuable casino and poker items currently being auctioned on the site. The $50 to $200 packages will include sports exchange prizes in addition to poker packages.
