Getting into the PM III Freeroll is a pretty straightforward matter since you need to earn 50 VIP points before November 23rd, 23:59 server time. Players receive 10 VIP points for every $1 in cash game or tournament rake paid, so this is a pretty light requirement. All you’d need to do is generate at least $5 in rake before the 23rd. If you can complete this task, a freeroll ticket will be waiting in your account. Note that the PM III Freeroll runs on November 24th and the time is to be announced.

It’s definitely worth raking $5 because there are some fantastic prizes in the PM III Freeroll. The lucky winner receives $2,456 worth of Poker Maximus III entries while the top 250 players will all collect at least one tournament seat. You can see all of this in the following figure:

Leaderboard Race

In addition to all of the money you can win on the felt, there are also going to be some big prizes given away to the top point earners from PM III. Leaderboard points are earned through a special formula that factors in the buy-in, amount of entrants and your finish position. So the basic idea here is to finish high in big tournaments so you can move up the board.

Those who finish within the top 10 positions on the PM III Leaderboard will receive huge cash prizes. No exact figures are available yet, but the top 10 Poker Maximus II players split $5,400 last time – with first place collecting $2,300. Also keep in mind that the top 100 players all receive a cool accolade for their avatar.

Once again, Poker Maximus starts on November 29th and the freeroll runs on the 24th. Even if you can’t make the freeroll qualifications by November 23rd (23:59 server time), there are PM III satellites currently running at Carbon Poker. So if you’re a member, just look under the “Satellites” section of the Carbon software.

When he walked away from the table at the end of the event, he had 18,346,673 (including the 1 million he bought-in with), making him the top winner in poker history. The first time he caught the attention of the poker circuit was when he landed the first place and $1.4 million at an event in the 2004 World Poker Tour (WPT), surpassing that recorded at the 2006 WSOP.

To earn the top spot in the event, Esfandiari had to defeat a table of seven very skilled poker players including Sam Trickett, who had to accept the second spot and took home $10.1 million for his commendable performance at the felt. On the first day of the event, the field had 48 players, but by the time the last day of the event rolled in there were just 8.
