Winning big can take you places    August 21, 2008


Many people play Poker to enjoy freedom; freedom from mundane lives, freedom from financial instability. But one of the greatest freedoms of all is being able to fly anywhere in the world that you could possibly want anytime you want. Bill Shiver can do just that after winning one of the most interesting Poker prizes to be had, twenty-one million frequent flier miles.

Bill Shiver was good enough, and lucky enough, to win the Continental Airlines' OnePass 21st Birthday Texas Hold'em Poker Tournament. The tournament was held in the storied Golden Nugget Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Golden Nugget has played host to an incredible amount of great Poker action and Bill Shiver's win is another tale to add to the storybook.

Bill will be able to circumnavigate the world many times over with his winnings and is making travel plans to carry him all over the globe. Getting started playing Poker as a hobby Shivers would never have been able to foretell just what his hobby would do for his passport. This was no easy feat for Shivers. There were two hundred and forty three players vying for the top prize and Shivers came out on top. This was truly a very talented field and is an honor for Shivers to have won in such a great tournament and claimed such a wonderful prize.

This isn't a one time shot either. There are several different ways that the typical Poker player can cash in on travel prizes. Aside from so many frequent flier miles, there are poker sites such as Pokerstars that are actively awarding cruises and European trips to its winners. This is a great way to cash in on some Poker skills and get that dream vacation all at the same time.
