Head Hunting On CryptoLogic

Once upon a time there was a poker network known as CryptoLogic. The company still exists but alas the CryptoLogic Network itself is no more. Many of those who played on the Network look back on it with fond memories. I'm not a great fan of no limit hold 'em but have been known to play small tournaments, and especially freerolls. And head hunters! Some of these tournaments were great, especially the affiliate freerolls: a realistic shot at big prizes at no risk at all, as will be seen from the Juha Santa Christmas promotion below played December 3, 2007.
The ten screengrabs here were all taken from the CryptoLogic Network. There is also a scan of a leaflet - actually a piece of card (above) - that came through my door from the affiliate RakeTheRake.
