Anyone who has ever been to Las Vegas in the summer knows how it hot can get and starting May 28th the heat will be turned up full blast. That is because the 2009 World Series of Poker (WSOP) kicks off on that day with the $40k No-Limit Hold ‘em event.
It is hard to believe it is that time of year already, when poker players from all over the world will converge on Las Vegas, to take their shot at fame and fortune. And even though the time is fast approaching for the start of the most prestigious poker event of the year, players can still win their seat on Absolute Poker.
Whether you are a skilled poker pro, or a rookie wanna-be, Absolute Poker has many ways for you to earn your WSOP seat, starting at just a dime! Why pay $10k for your Main Event seat when you could pay just ten cents? Get your seat cheap and you can save that $9,999.90 to play in other WSOP tournaments and side games!
Absolute Poker is offering Step tournaments where you can win your Main Event seat, and even though the WSOP starts soon - you still have time to get in! The first step is the 10 cent qualifier, where you have to make it through 10 different Step tournaments to win your main event seat. This may sound like quite a task, but consider the pay-off; not only will you win your WSOP Main Event seat but also an Aruba Classic Prize Package worth $8.5K!
But if you don’t want to wade through so many steps, Absolute poker offers faster ways to get in your WSOP seat. First up are the satellite tournaments, with buy-ins as low as $10. Next are the Route 1 direct buy-in satellites, where a $500 +$30 buy-in will get you to Vegas even faster. There is also a $215 Weekly Super Satellite every Wednesday at 8:30pm ET where each tournament guarantees to pay out at least one WSOP prize package. Then on June 21st at 17:30 EST you can play in the recently added 50-Seat Guaranteed and you can qualify by winning a Step 7a tournament or buy- in for $500+30. Play in any or all of these qualifiers and you too can join the ranks of the 95 players who have already won their WSOP prize packages on Absolute Poker.
WSOP prize packages are worth $12,000 and include your $10,000 Main Event buy-in and $2,000 for travel, accommodations and spending money. Then, when you are lucky and skilled enough to win the WSOP, you could win an extra Ten Million Dollars if you wore Absolute branded gear while you fought your way to the winners circle!
