Share this
The World Series of Poker is at the peak of every poker player’s annual event calendar and the Holy Grail on the tournament trail. Players flock to Vegas for their opportunity to gain fame and fortune as the summer season heats up. In 2009, a total of 6,494 players surrounded the felt for the $10,000 Main Event. A fierce battle ensued and when the fight was over and the dust cleared, it was Joe Cada who remained seated and walked away with a bankroll bursting $8,546,435.

This year will be no different and the playing field will grow over the next few months, with most players landing their seat in the big event via online qualification. For the many who have started looking for their shot at getting their seat at the main event without shelling out $10,000 for the direct buy-in, PokerWorks wants to present a continuing guide for routes to earn your way into the 2010 World Series of Poker. There are several deals out there that you can take advantage of to get to the Main Event cheap and are being held at some of the best poker rooms to be found online.

To get started, 888/Pacific Poker has some awesome opportunities with 88 ways to get to this year’s World Series of Poker. You can play to win one of 41 Main Event prize packages valued at $15,000, or choose to compete for one of 47 packages to event number 54 worth $5,000. All packages will include one event entry, as well as five star accommodations, and cash for travel and spending. In addition, winners will receive 888/Pacific Poker merchandise and an invitation to their exclusive player’s party.

What’s more, 888/Pacific Poker is providing the broadest choice of qualification routes that include Rake Races, Friend Referrals, Facebook Fan Pages Registration and Bounty Tournaments. Rake the most hands in the Persistence Pays promotion or Race Your Way to earn the most status points, or refer as many friends as possible to earn your way to Vegas. You can also get your package with Social Success if you are a YouTube, Facebook or Twitter fan, or participate in the Cards and Coins promotion to earn the most casino and status points. If you enjoy the hunt, then play in the Bounty Hunter promotion to knock out the 888/ Pacific Poker celebrities or take first place in one of the tournaments. And for Tourney Lovers, you can join the race to play the most tournaments having the biggest buy-ins. Finally, in the One For The Ladies promotion, just the ladies have the chance to race to earn the most status points.

Moving on to PartyPoker, known to be one of the big players in WSOP qualification promotions, you can play for your $14,000 package to the main event, starting with FREEROLLS. In addition, there are plentiful cash satellite qualifiers to the Main Event Satellites that run every Friday at 18.00ET and Sunday at 15.35ET. And for $700 + $50, you can buy-in directly, where one in 20 players participating in each satellite will win a $14,000 all-inclusive WSOP prize package. Best of all, you can qualify for absolutely FREE by signing up for your PartyPoker account via PokerWorks to get a FREE $50 bonus and $25 of it instantly with NO DEPOSIT REQUIRED!
