The more you play the higher up the leader-board you go, simple as that. The top 500 places on the leader-board win up to £250 in pay outs. If you keep playing those hands, climbing up the leader-board to reach Top 20, you instantly qualify for a $2,000 GSOP (Grand Series of Poker) freefall.
But if you don't quite make it there is always the $2,000 freefall; since all Push Em players qualify for that. You can't knock it.Push 'em Poker
All that said, what exactly is Push Em Poker? And how is it different to good, old Texas Hold Em Poker?
Push Em Poker is Betfair's simplified version of Texas Holdem Poker where there are only two options - All In or Fold. Push Em requires players to buy in for exactly five big blinds, increasing the chances of an early all-in confrontation. This makes for a more pacey and dynamic poker experience.
