Possibly the main reason for delaying the final table of the World Series of Poker's Main Event was so you can learn more about the players and, therefore, find a rooting interest.
But now PokerStars will give you a reason to root for them even if you don't know anything about them.
Play in PokerStars' "Win A Share" tourneys, and you can earn yourself a piece of whatever your man takes home from the WSOP.
PokerStars is running tournaments for each of the six men sponsored by the poker site, what the site is calling its Million Dollar Men. The $100,000 prize pool also awards the top 100 finishers a .01 percent share in the winnings.
You can play in one, a few, or all of the tournaments.
The tournaments start Oct. 5 with David "Chino" Rheem at 4 p.m. Eastern Time. All tournaments go every Sunday after that at 4 p.m. Eastern Time. Darus Suharto is next, followed by Yion Schwartz, Peter Eastgate, Ivan Demidov and finally the chip leader, Dennis Phillips, ends them on Nov. 9.
You can enter with 500 Frequent Player Points or a first-time deposit. There are even 10 FPP or 50 FPP satellites.
There are many other Million Dollar Men promotions at PokerStars going on now, so download PokerStars now and you'll get an exclusive PokerWorks bonus of $25 free in addition to a 100 percent matching bonus up to $50. You must enter the marketing code of POKERWORKS upon registration and the bonus code of FIRST2008 upon your first deposit.
Check out the Million Dollar Men freerolls, with more than $360,000 worth in cash prizes. Play in the daily Round 1 freerolls from Sept. 28 to Oct. 17 and you could find yourself playing in the final against the Million Dollar Men for the $100,000 first prize.
You can also play against the men in VIP one-table tournaments, and there's a special Outlast the Million Dollar Man tournament.
