Your WSOP Dream Could Come True at Hollywood Poker

Share this
The 2010 World Series of Poker (WSOP) has been officially announced and the schedule has been published. This year's set of 57 golden bracelet tournaments will kick off at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on Friday, May 28 and will continue through July 17, when the last hand of the pre-final table action of the Big Dance will be played. It’s nearly a full summer of action-packed poker combat that every passionate poker player hopes to experience first-hand. But let’s face it, in today’s dwindling economy, coming up with the extra money to compete is just a pipe dream for many players. Unless, of course, they are lucky enough to win one of the fantastic 2010 WSOP Prize Packages being offered at Hollywood Poker.

All told, 17 Prize Packages are up for grabs at Hollywood Poker: 11 Main Event Packages and 6 Side Event Packages. Each Main Event Package includes entry to the WSOP Main Event Championship #57 (July 5-17) worth $10,000, entry to an exclusive $5,000 Warm-Up Tournament, luxurious accommodation for up to 13 days at the Five-Star Wynn Hotel worth $3,000, airfare and spending money worth $3,000, along with HollywoodPoker.com clothing and merchandise.

Side Event Packages #51 (June 29) and #56 (July 2) are each worth $10,000 and include entry to event (#51 worth $3,000/#56 worth $2,500), accommodations for up to 10 days at the 5-Star Wynn Hotel worth $2,200, airfare and spending money worth $2,300, plus Hollywood Poker clothing and merchandise.

Players can qualify for a chance to win one of these WSOP 2010 Prize Packages 24/7 at Hollywood Poker, either in any Sit n Go Tournaments starting with buy-ins as low as $3+0.30 or any Scheduled Tournaments starting with buy-ins as low as $5+0.50. There is also plenty of time to left in May to earn the 1,000 Poker Points needed for a ticket to the June 5 Freeroll Tournament, where a win could get you a chance to win a $300 + $20 ticket to the WSOP 2010 Online Final on June 6.

Just imagine joining thousands upon thousands of poker players from every corner of the world to battle it out for cash, glory, and fame! Last year’s WSOP set an overall attendance record with 60,875 players, and this year an even bigger crowd is expected to converge on Las Vegas hoping to claim their WSOP bracelets. The first bracelet event will start on May 28 and will feature a $50,000 buy-in, the most expensive starting event in the history of the WSOP. Over the course of 4 days, players will have to prove their worth in the 8-game format made popular by Chip Reese and other professionals: Limit Holdem, Omaha Hi-Lo, Stud, Stud Hi-Lo, Razz, NL Holdem, PL Omaha and Deuce to 7 Triple Draw Lowball. The final table of the event will feature NL Holdem. The winner of this event will walk away with not only a hefty cash prize, but the prestigious Chip Reese memorial trophy as well.

The second bracelet event of the gala will be the $1,000 NL Holdem event which begins on May 29. Last year, due to the popularity of the game format and the relatively low buy-in, a record 6,012 players bellied up to the tables of this poker tournament. And you can bet this year’s event will also attract a record number of participants.

The 2010 WSOP will include a new event to up the ante for high stakes players—the $25K 6-handed NL Holdem, which will be event #52. This 4-day tournament will feature short-handed play and certainly some crazed action! Also, in addition to the $1,500 and $3,000 HORSE events, a new $10,000 World Championship will grace this year’s WSOP schedule.

The Ante Up For Africa Event will return this year, a tournament founded by Annie Duke, Don Cheadle, and Norman Epstein in 2006 to raise public awareness and funds to support the victims of the humanitarian crisis in Darfur, Sudan. The NL Holdem tournament will kick off on July 3 and has an entry fee of $5,000. As in the past you can expect to see many top Hollywood stars, athletes and poker pros turn out for this event. Among those already confirmed to participate this year are tournament veterans Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.
 
But remember, time waits for no man (or woman for that matter), so if you want to win your free place at the 2010 WSOP you better get busy. Hollywood Poker is waiting for you!
