Promo of the Week: Hollywood Swinging
A quick heads-up on a good PL promo to take advantage of this week, the $1k/$15k EPT freeroll series at Hollywood Poker - online home of Vince "King of the Hollywood home game" Van Patten and the "Shark" James Woods.

Because of an overlap in qualifying periods, you can get a ticket to two upcoming $15k EPT freerolls - one for an all-inclusive package to the EPT Copenhagen main event and another for an all-inclusive package to the EPT San Remo main event - in one shot next week.

The deal: All players signed up at Hollywood through a PokerListings link are eligible for weekly $1k cash freerolls, held every Saturday. Qualifying is just 50 points Sun.-Fri. each week; freerolls run until Mar 8.

Past the cash, there's an added incentive: Make the top five spots in any of the weekly $1k freerolls and you also qualify for one of the $15k's - make the top five Nov. 17 to Jan. 26, and qualify for the EPT Copenhagen freeroll Jan. 27; make the top five Jan. 12-Mar. 8, you qualify for the Mar. 9. EPT San Remo freeroll.

But: there are two weeks of qualification crossover, Jan. 19 and Jan. 26.

Which means if you finish in the top five in either of those weeks, you qualify for both EPT freerolls.

Good deal. So 50 points this week at Hollywood could turn into a pretty lucrative Spring.

Either way, the EPT freerolls are solid value. Limited fields, good payouts - on top of the packages, an extra $5k in cash is spread to a deep prize pool, so they're decent time/reward.

Check out the Hollywood Poker review page for more details, including the massive $1,500 sign-up bonus for PokerListings players.

Added incentive to sign up and play at Hollywood: weekly celebrity bounty tourneys.

Bounty payouts are between $25, for knocking out one celeb, to $2,000 for knocking out five. So payouts can be pretty lucrative, with over $200k in celeb bounties alone last year.

Frequent celeb attendees: WPT host Vince Van Patten, noted shark and Kwik-E-Mart clerk James Woods, Mimi Rogers, Willie Garson and Tom Everett Scott.

The sweetest bounty of them all, perhaps: A possible Scott Baio sighting.
