Anyone who is even mildly interested in poker has a dream of one day playing in the WSOP Main Event. It’s the biggest poker tournament in the world and the Main Event also features the most money of any tourney. Last year the Main Event had $64,333,600 in the total prize pool and the champion, Peter Eastgate, earned $9,152,416 for taking first place!
Unfortunately, to compete for all of this money in the Main Event you have to either have $10,000 for the buy-in or win a prize package by playing in poker satellites. And, depending upon how much money you spend on the buy-in, there could be several poker satellites you have to go through to get a free WSOP seat. But you won’t have to worry about any of this at SportsBook Poker since one big hand could land you a $13,000 WSOP prize package.
From now until April 30th, you have a chance to earn one of the $13k WSOP packages by playing at SportsBook Poker cash game tables. All you have to do for a chance to win is get a 4 of a kind or better at one of SportsBook’s WSOP4FREE tables using both of your hole cards to make the hand. Once you’ve made a hand like this you just need to e-mail SportsBook with the proper information. After you have done this then SportsBook will register you in the small WSOP $13,000 Prize Package Final tournament that takes place on May 3rd. If no one else is entered then you automatically win!
Even if there are other players in the WSOP $13,000 Prize Package Final and you don’t win there are plenty of other prizes to look forward to. That’s because SportsBook Poker will be giving out cash to anyone finishing from 2nd to 10th place. Players can also win a free 8GB iPod iTouch by making a Royal Flush at any of the WSOP4FREE tables.
But before you can win any of these great prizes you’ll need to sign up for SportsBook Poker using the POKERWORKS bonus code. This way you will not only have a chance to win the $13,000 WSOP prize package, but you’ll also get the 100% deposit bonus up to $1,000. By signing up at SportsBook, you also have numerous other ways to secure a seat at the 2009 WSOP Main Event.
All SportsBook members have the opportunity to compete in the WSOP Freeroll Qualifier which happens 3 times a day (5:15 pm, 8:15 pm, and 11:45 pm ET). If you’re able to finish in the top 50 of this poker freeroll then you’ll move on to the WSOP Freeroll Final starting at 5:15 pm. The person that wins the Final will earn a $13,000 WSOP prize package.
You can also punch your ticket for the WSOP by competing in the Gold Rush tournaments that are currently running at SportsBook. For just the cost of a few Gold Chips (earned in SportsBooks Poker cash games and tournaments) you could have a free WSOP Main Event seat. Just look in the SportsBook Poker lobby for starting times to find the Gold Rush WSOP tournaments.
