Last year there was plenty of excitement in the air as the WSOP chose to hold a major event outside of the United States for the first time as it hosted the World Series of Poker Europe. Three different tournaments were held in the WSOPE and tons of money was given away in each one with Annette Obrestad winning the biggest prize of ₤1,000,000 (approximately $1,943,900).
The WSOPE was such a huge success last year that many of poker’s biggest stars are going to be in attendance this year such as Daniel Negreanu, Phil Hellmuth, Jennifer Harman (who was runner-up in an event last year), Chris “Jesus” Ferguson, and WSOPE Champion Annette Obrestad. The great thing is that you now have a chance to join these players at the WSOPE for free!
This is because Bodog Poker is giving away seats to the WSOPE Main Event which are valued at over $20,000 each. The Main Event seat buy-in isn’t the only thing that they are including though as Bodog will also throw in round trip airfare to London, limo service to and from your hotel, hotel accommodations, ₤500 spending money ($972), and the opportunity to party with Team Bodog.
If you want to get in on these fabulous prize packages then make sure to download Bodog Poker using the POKERWORKS bonus code because this will get you the 110% deposit bonus up to $500. After completing this small little step, check out the Online Qualifying Schedule for the World Series of Poker Europe. Here you will find qualifiers and satellites that are as low as $1. Players can also buy directly into the quarterfinals for just $22 + $2.
The great thing about these qualifiers is that they happen every single day from 9:00 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. But if a person wants to bypass the smaller qualifiers and quarterfinals they can also buy directly into the Euro Main Event Semifinal for $500 + $40 and this is where the seats are given out.
The next step after this is the Euro (WSOPE) Main Event where you could be the next member of Team Bodog to make major cash. Last year, Matt McCullough was a Team Bodog member and finished third in the Euro Main Event to Obrestad and John Tabatabai. His reward was ₤381,910 (about $743,400) and the fame what came with being on the final table in one of Europe’s biggest poker events. If you play your cards right at Bodog then you could become the next Matt McCullough!
