LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Aug. 16, 2012) - Here's a top tip: it's never wise turning up late. Employers don't like it, first dates don't appreciate it and teachers definitely don't stand for it - hello detention! Luckily though, online poker giants are seemingly more understanding, because poker champs, Sky Poker are delighted to announce that they are allowing players to register and enter into select multi-table poker tournaments even after the fun and games have already started.
Late Registration comes to the aid of those who narrowly miss out; those who find themselves racing against the clock to enter into prized tournaments, and those who may have seen an epic tournament advertised on Sky Poker TV but missed the chance to later capitalise.
The concept allows players to register for a tournament after the tournament has officially started, meaning players no longer have to fret about spoiling their chances of winning superb cash collectibles.
It's like being given a second chance, a new start to push on and prosper.
Players will have the chance to register into selected tournaments during rest breaks only. This means they won't be allocated a seat until the break has ended and the poker tournament resumes. Players will easily be able to spot which tournaments offer later registrars a golden seat. The fabled Sky Poker lobby will helpfully tag which of those tournaments have begun and which are open for late registration.
Be warned though: Late Registration comes to the aid of those who narrowly miss out on initial tournament registration only. This means players are not able to re-enter if they've already been eliminated from that very same tournament.
For more information on Late Registration, please visit the Sky Poker website.
