Carbon Poker rolls out $35k in New October Freerolls
By RTR Dennis
Whether you’re a freeroll hunter or just somebody who loves playing in real money tournaments for free, Carbon Poker is definitely the place to be this month. That’s because Carbon has bolstered their October tournament selection with an extra $35,000 in freerolls!
The bulk of this amount is going to be offered through the $25k Chip King promotion, which consists of four huge free tourneys. The other $10k is coming through the brand new $10,000 New Depositors Freeroll. Since both of these events are offering a ton of money to players, it’s definitely worth discussing them more.
$25k Chip King This promo started at the beginning of October (one freeroll is already finished) and runs until October 31st, 2012. There are three remaining freerolls with prize pools ranging from $5,000–$10,000, and you need to earn at least 50 VIP points throughout the month to qualify for them. The more points you earn, the larger your chip stack will be for each freeroll. Below you can see both the remaining freeroll schedule and the variable chip stacks:

- $7,500 Freeroll on October 22nd – Earn 50 points between October 1st–20th.
- $10,000 Freeroll on October 31st – Qualify from October 1st–29th, only top 50 VIP points earners in October receive a ticket.
