How time flies! It seems like only yesterday that a team from Chinese Taipei defeated Croatia to become the new World Cup of Poker champions. In reality though, it’s been nearly six months, which means it’s time to start getting ready for the World Cup VII competition. And as always, Hollywood Poker is on top of the challenge with the newest, most exciting tournament this spring—the World Cup Warm-Up Finals, with a massive guaranteed prize pool of over $50,000!
Here’s how it works. Players are divided into eight geographical regions: Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Scandinavia, Germany, France, Africa, Asia/Australia/New Zealand, and Central America/Canada/Mexico. Each geographical region will have four qualifiers dated May 25, May 27, June 1 and June 3. The top players from each qualifier will win a ticket to the $50,000 World Cup Warm-Up Final, together with the corresponding prize money!
If it sounds interesting, that’s because it is. And if you want to be a part of the action, Hollywood Poker has three ways to get you started. Sit n Go qualifying games are running 24/7. From the Lobby, click on the Sit n Go tab, find any qualifier to $10 + $1, and win your ticket to the next level. You can also move up the levels in Scheduled Tournaments with buy-ins to $5 + 0.50. Or you can simply buy-in directly to enter any of your region’s World Cup Warm-Up Online Qualifiers.
Tons of cash and tickets will be given away in the qualifiers. Players who live in the Central America/Canada/Mexico region will have a chance at 100 entry tickets and prize money. In France, 400 tickets and the corresponding prize money is up for grabs. The Eastern and Western Europe regions are offering up 440 tickets each; Scandinavia and Germany regions each have 280 tickets; Africa has 20 tickets; and Asia/Australia/New Zealand has 40. If a player wins more than one (1) ticket to the final, any additional tickets are forfeited.
And if you make it to the World Cup Warm-Up Final, which will take place on Saturday June 5 at 6:00 pm UTC/2:00 pm EDT, you could take home your share of the more than $50,000 Guaranteed Prize Pool. The positions of all players in the Final will be finalized with 420 places paid in cash. The payout structure ranges from 12.07 percent for first place to 0.06 percent for players who finish in 341st to 420th place.
