We are still a week away from the beginning of August, but that’s not too early for PartyPoker to release the details of the new promotion it will be launching next month.  For the last full month of summer (well, at least for those of you in the northern hemisphere), PartyPoker is actually going to be running three different promos, giving all players a shot at a little extra something, regardless of what games they like to play.
The first promotion, the Full House $100,000 Grand Final, is very basic.  Every Sunday in August (except for August 1st), PartyPoker will hold a $10,000 weekly freeroll.  To earn an entry into one of them, players must earn at least one PartyPoint in three separate days during the qualifying week leading up to the tourney.  Qualifying weeks start on Sunday at midnight and run until 11:59pm ET Saturday the week before the tournament (so the qualifying week for the August 8th freeroll runs from August 1st through August 7th).
Players who win seats in at least two of the four weekly freerolls will also gain entry into the $100,000 Grand Final, which will take place on August 30th.  The Grand Final can also be entered directly for 1,000 PartyPoints.
As a reminder, PartyPoints can be earned in any real money game at PartyPoker.com.  In cash games, a player earns two points for every $1 in rake attributed to him in each pot.  PartyPoker uses the dealt method, which means that every player who was dealt cards in the hand is eligible for points.  So, for example, if the $2 is taken in rake and four players were dealt into the hand, $0.50 is attributed to each player, giving them each one PartyPoint.  In tournaments (both scheduled tournaments and Sit & Go’s), two points are awarded for every $1 paid in entry fees.  In a $22 tournament, for instance, the fee is $2, meaning that each player will receive four PartyPoints.  If you haven’t signed up for PartyPoker yet, you can create an account using Tight Poker’s exclusive PartyPoker bonus code and any PartyPoints earned during the promotion will still count towards clearing your deposit bonus.
Next is the $50,000 Full House Cash Game Race, which runs from August 2nd through August 22nd.  Open only to Bronze, Silver, and Gold players (sorry high rolling Palladium Loungers), the Full House Cash Game Race is a simple ring game points-earning contest.  Play in cash games, accumulate PartyPoints, and move up the leader board.  At the end of the race, the player who earned the most points in cash games will receive $3,000.  Second place will get $2,500, and third place will pocket $2,000.  All told, the top 500 finishers will win money, with half earning $50 or less.
Finally, there is the Full House Sit & Go Jackpots promotion, which runs the entire duration of August.  At total of $160,000 in jackpot money is waiting to be won by players who can conquer five ten-handed single table Sit & Go tournaments in a row.  The jackpots vary based on buy-in and are as follows:
* $50,000 Gold Jackpot — $55 and greater buy-in Sit & Go’s – one will be available
* $20,000 Silver Jackpot — $12 to $54 buy-in – three will be available
* $10,000 Bronze Jackpot — $3 to $11 buy-in – five will be available
The first players to win the required Sit & Go’s and report them to PartyPoker will win the jackpots.  Anyone who wins five Sit & Go’s in a row, all in the same buy-in level, must e-mail their account name to info@partypoker.com to claim their prize.  Double or Nothing tournaments do not count.
PartyPoker currently ranks as the third largest online poker room in the world (based on cash game traffic), according to PokerScout.com.
