Thanks for the info! Found this in my inbox from Absolute:

New York ‘V’ California. Thursday 17th May 10:00pm ET. (Freeroll!)
That’s right! Here at Absolute Poker we thought we’d invite the fine people of New York and California to the tables and give them the chance to take each other on, and take each other out!

Edit: Just realized I won't be home when this gets going, and won't be back in time. :/ So, good luck to anyone else who plays.
