A huge rake race is underway at the CEREUS network, aka Absolute Poker and Ultimate Bet. Some high octane poker action is in order over the next month as grinders rack up the hands to compete for a $530,000 prize pool.
This is more than double the $220,000 offered by the sites in their last Rake Race. To qualify for the competition, all you have to do is simply play hands at real money NLHE tables.
This counts for tournaments, sit n' goes and cash games. By racking up as many RAI$E points at Ultimate Bet or FAME points at Absolute Poker, players put themselves in to win their share of the half a million.
At the end of the qualifying period, the top 500 STATUS Point earners on the CEREUS Rake Race leaderboard will share in the $500,000 prize pool that includes $25,000 for the first place finisher, $22,000 for the runner-up, and $20,000 for the player who ranks third. Those outside the 500 will still have a chance in the $30,000 Rake Race freeroll.
