Wildcard Announced for the Tenth Affiliate Series of Poker Championship

Founder of the VC Group: Victor Chandler to play in Affiliate Series of Poker

London, United Kingdom – 10 December 2009: The Affiliate Series of Poker (ASOP) will soon be celebrating its tenth birthday at the London Affiliate Conference to be held at Old Billingsgate in London on the 29th-31st of January. The organisers, iGB Affiliate, are overjoyed at the increasing popularity of this championship which is played three times a year at their Affiliate Conferences world wide. The popularity is undoubtedly helped by the fact that over the years the ASOP has given away over $200,000 worth of prizes and are constantly surprising their attendees.

“Every year we get a huge influx of affiliates logging in online and competing to get one of the coveted 60 seats” Alex Pratt, Publisher of iGB Affiliate commented “And since we have allowed Affiliate Managers to compete, this has only increased the fun rivalry of the game. We are lucky that year after year we get the best sponsors to run the online qualifiers which had put our championship in the top leagues.”

The Sponsors this year are VictorChandler.com and Cake Poker, the latter a returning sponsor with a proven track-record as one of the best poker rooms on the internet and invaluable ASOP experience. The wildcard in the pack is the Victor Chandler Group who for the first time this year will be the Royal Flush Sponsor. But it seems in an unusual turn of events VictorChandler.com have entered one of their own into the competition: Victor Chandler himself, the industry pioneer, who with over three generations of gambling genes and experience, was one of the first to understand the importance of online gambling and has turned VictorChandler.com into one of the behemoths of online sportsbetting, casinos and poker. The Gentleman bookmaker, as he is often referred to, is as always gracious about his participation.

“We are proud to be the Royal Flush sponsors of the ASOP this year.” Stated Victor Chandler, owner of the Victor Chandler Group “And because of it I want to give delegates the chance of getting more out of the competition. This is your chance to win a whole bag of gifts, including a trip to the Nottingham Forest VIP Box and a seat to the monthly million Guaranteet Tournament worth $560! Prizes worthy of the poker player who manages to get me out of the game. Victor Chandler Ltd is always trying to find new ways of giving you more for your money, and this competition is no different.”

The question is; how far will Victor Chandler go? Will he win one of the top ten cash prizes? Or perhaps the top first prize of $6,000 and the sought-after ASOP diamond bracelet? To participate you must be actively involved in the online gambling affiliate industry and approved on www.asop.com. The players will qualify for the ASOP off-line tournament through a number of controlled and password-protected on-line freeroll tournaments which will be held on www.cakepoker.com and www.victorchandler.com. The tournament is completely free, so the competition will certainly be high, with the best in the online gambling industry participating to get the chance to win one of the top ten cash prices and the bragging-rights of having beaten one of The Sunday Times Rich list regular’s, Mr Victor Chandler.
