)-- Dream Team Poker and the legendary Bicycle Casino have teamed up for a unique series of exciting, team sport events in the Los Angeles, California area in the spirit of the ever popular football season.
The newly launched, Dream Team Poker League events will be comprised of a series of 11 weekly tournaments played in a Dream Team Poker format, utilizing a unique Chip Leader Board scoring system to assess each teams’ progress. “This has never been done before in poker and we are excited to launch the first league of this kind with the Bicycle Casino,” says CEO Daniel Delshad.
Casino Manager, Zaven Esmaili stated, “We’re excited to incorporate Dream Team into our Monday Night Football Parties & Poker Tournaments. We think it’s a perfect fit with MNF and the sports team concept and we think our players will like playing with their squad as a team in an event that gives them more ways to win.”
The 11-week Chip Leader Board series of tournaments begins Monday, October 19, 2009 and runs through December 28th, 2009. Teams can register between the hours of 4PM – 7PM, every Monday night during the series. The MNF football parties kick off every Monday at 4PM at the Bike with LA’s #1 Sports Radio Show hosts, 570 KLAC’s “Petros and Money” broadcasting live directly from the casino floor. Satellites, contests, prizes, sports memorabilia and “sit ‘n go’s” are all part of the fun. Players can bring their friends to create their own team or be teamed up by DTP. The official “shuffle up and deal” is at 7PM.
Players will have the opportunity to play in some or all of the events, but those who show up often definitely have the edge in additional team points acquired and applied towards the Championship event, scheduled for Monday, December 28th at 7PM.
The grand prize is cash & tickets to Superbowl XLIV at Miami's Dolphin Stadium on February 7, 2010.
Each of the 11 weekly tournaments in the Dream Team Poker format are only $57 + $10 per player; $201 per team. Each team earns $600 minimum in additional team chips for every event played. The more tournaments a team plays in, the more team chips they have starting the Championship event at the end of the series.

About Dream Team Gaming
Dream Team Poker is a new “team-based” structure and scoring system for tournament poker. Dream Team Poker’s patent-pending scoring system allows players to compete on an individual basis while getting scored as a team, giving each player better odds and chances to win money as they compete for individual and team prizes. Casinos benefit from Dream Team Poker’s structure as players are incentivized to stay at the property after busting out, resulting in extended hotel stays, added enjoyment of casino amenities and restaurants and increased side play in poker rooms.
Founded in 2007, Dream Team Poker is growing rapidly and licensing its tournament structure to many of the nation’s largest and most popular casinos. It is the first gaming product developed by Dream Team Gaming, a privately held company headquartered in Beverly Hills, CA. For more information, please visit www.dreamteampoker.com.
