The 2010 World Series of Poker tournament is here! This year is one of the best crowds the Rio has seen in years and, if you’re not already in Vegas, here’s your chance to win an entry into the Main Event for just $370!
Pokerstars is hosting a WSOP Mega Satellite to the Main event that has 200 guaranteed WSOP packages to the Texas Holdem Main Event! The event is taking place on the Pokerstars software on June 20, 2010 at 16:30 EST (that’s 4:30pm to all you New Yorkers!)
The Pokerstars WSOP Mega Satellite will take place of the regular Pokerstars Sunday Million poker tournament and is estimated to have more than 6,500 poker players battling for their chance to win millions of dollars in Las Vegas. The promotion is only for one week, so if you plan on playing I suggest signing up an account early and putting an reminder in your calendar or iPhone.
If you are shying away because of the $370 price tag of this event, try to qualify for the satellites through the Pokerstars mini mega-satellites available in the software for just $1 + $0.10 or 100 Frequent Player Points. The tournaments are located under the Events > WSOP tab. You can also find them through the Tourney > Special tab.
The World Series of Poker Main Event begins July 5, 2010 and is a 7-day event. The starting day of the WSOP (aka “Day 1”) will have four days dedicated to it this year and you can expect the Rio to be completely full. The Pokerstars prize packages have a value of $12,000 each and include your $10,000 Main Event buyin, a deluxe hotel reservation at the Palms Resort & Casino, as well as some bonus cash for travel expenses.
Not only will you be given this monetary compensation, but you’ll also get some other great perks should you do well. Pokerstars will generally offer players who’ve satellited through a Pokerstars satellite extra compensation for wearing Pokerstars gear, or possibly Team Pro status when the action gets down to the final tables.
So what are you waiting for? Go to Pokerstars.com now and sign-up today to win your way to the greatest event in Las Vegas!
See you in Vegas!
