Full Tilt Fever: More Than 500 WSOP Seats Awarded So Far

Share this
Anyone who has been to the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas or watched the coverage on ESPN is aware that Full Tilt Poker always maintains a solid presence at the Series. In addition to the Team Full Tilt members and any number of other sponsored pros in the Full Tilt family, there are numerous other players wearing the gear and representing the site. How did they get there? The answer is obvious.

Full Tilt Poker is one of the online poker websites that awards the most seats to the various WSOP events throughout the summer, and the current year is no different. As of the penning of this article, Full Tilt has given away 519 seats to several events at the 2009 WSOP, including main event entries worth $10,000 each.

There are numerous ways to win said seats and travel to Las Vegas for the experience of a lifetime. Shootout tournaments run daily on Full Tilt Poker, and cash qualifiers are on the weekly schedule. But in the $10 Million Main Event Mania, there are events throughout the week that give players from all over the world the chance to win. And keep in mind that the $10 million refers to the amount of money that the main event winner will receive on top of the already hefty prize money if that person qualifies through Full Tilt and goes on to win the 2009 WSOP main event. A $10 million bonus!

From Tuesday through Sunday, there are main event guarantee tournaments running, such as the $300 buy-in on Tuesday, $200 on Wednesday, $1,000 on Thursday, $300 on Saturday, and $500 on Sunday. And if you cannot afford the buy-ins that can take a bite out of most bankrolls, check out the satellites that will earn seats into each of these events at a fraction of the cost.

And let’s not forget about the 150 Seat Main Event Guarantee. The big event that will award no less than 150 main event seats is scheduled to take place at 6:00pm ET on Sunday, June 21, and will be the grand finale of qualifiers to send representatives to Las Vegas with a $12,000 prize package - $10K for the buy-in and $2K for incidentals and travel expenses. And anyone can begin winning their way into the special tournament now.

There are qualifiers running from now through June 21st, and for as little as $1 or 50 Frequent Player Points (FPP), players can win their entries into the 150-seat guarantee. Some of the qualifiers can cost players up to $150, but there is also a chance to enter with 12,000 FPP’s. And to skip the satellite action, the buy-in for the 150 Seat Main Event Guarantee is $500. Either way, with 150 prize packages on the line worth $12K each, it’s a can’t-miss tournament.

With 519 seats to the WSOP already awarded and many more on the line in the coming weeks, it is now or never to win your trip to Las Vegas. The opportunity to participate in the most prestigious and exciting tournaments on earth is only a few clicks away.
