The World Series of Poker main event started with four Day 1s and kicked off on Thursday, July 7th. If you couldn't make it this year, or couldn't come up with a seat due to el-broke-o bankroll, you certainly aren't alone. That's why this message should put a smile on your face. PokerWorks and PokerStars are bringing you a special tournament to compliment PokerNews' official WSOP Live Updates - and this year it's better and bigger than ever before.
It's the PokerWorks Main Event and you can be there for the small sum of $10+$1. It kicks off on July 17th at 2 p.m. EST and $20,000 has been added to the prize pool. WOOT! That is one massive prize pool! This is one of the best online poker tournaments of the year and it's designed to make you feel just like you're playing the main event except you don't have to leave the comfort of your home. Just fire up the Poker Controller and get ready for action.
When you look at the size of the money added, $20,000 is a staggering amount; it's the equivalent of an additional 2,000 players entering the field. PokerStars no longer accepts US players (tear drops are falling in the US) which should mean a reduced field will be playing for a lot of money.
The PokerWorks Main Event has a deep structure which adds to the player value and it mirrors the WSOP main event. There really is no reason for a skillful player to bust out early when you consider 30,000 starting chips, 15 minute blind levels, and the blinds start at 50-100. Another plus is the 120 minute late registration window.
Play the PokerWorks Main Event while you watch the official live updates from the WSOP main event and the exclusive video updates. And that's where you're going to find the password to the PokerWorks Main Event - it will be released at intervals during the official live updates of the WSOP Main Event. Make sure you book mark the WSOP Main Event Live Updates page so you can enter the PokerWorks Main Event.
