Victor Chandler Poker today launches its innovative "55 Special" Share Scheme League which sees players pay a €10 entry fee which entitles them to take part in five weekly €200 freerolls, a chance to win a share of up to €18,000 and a coveted place in the Victor Chandler Hall of Fame.

The first "55 Special" Share Scheme League starts Tuesday Feb. 22 at 21:00 CET and runs every Tuesday for five weeks. It consists of two elements -- a weekly €200 freeroll and a leaderboard running across the five weekly freerolls through which €9 of every €10 entry fee is returned to the players who are awarded leaderboard points.

Players who wish to participate in the "55 Special" Share Scheme League must register for the "55 Special" Place Holder Tournament found under the "Specials" tab in the tournament lobby, by paying a €10 entry fee.

They will then be eligible to register for the five, €200 "55 Special" Freerolls each Tuesday which will payout the €200 prize pool and see leaderboard points awarded to the top "55" finishers in each freeroll.

When the fifth and final freeroll in the series has been played, the leaderboard will be finalised and all players who have been awarded leaderboard points will win a share of the entry fees paid by all participating players (up to €18,000), where the leaderboard points awarded to an individual player will determine the "share" of the prize pool awarded to the player.

Andy Horne, head of poker at Victor Chandler, said, "We pride ourselves on offering something to poker players at all levels and the "55 Special" is a low cost way to play regularly against equally competitive players not only to win the weekly prizes but to climb the leaderboard, score a big cash prize, and be immortalized in our Hall of Fame. All aboard the '55 Special'!"
