Since the World Series of Poker is coming up very soon, online poker sites are offering several ways to win seats to the anticipated event. Every popular online poker site is offering qualifiers and satellites that offer at least one seat to the WSOP if not more. Usually the more people that compete in the qualifiers the more seats become available.
Ladbrokes Poker recently announced they are offering a new way for players to earn a seat to the World Series of Poker 2010. This offer is unique in the fact that online poker players do not have to play a single hand of poker.
Ladbrokes Poker is going to be hosting a series of World Series of Poker lottery tournaments. The Head of Poker at Ladbrokes Kate McLennan commented: “At Ladbrokes Poker our mission is to bring poker to the people. So what could be better than giving our players the chance to qualify for the World Series of Poker- the biggest poker event of the year- without event playing one hand? Now there’s a story for your table!”
The way the system works is that each player goes all in every hand. The players that qualify will then be put in a daily satellite and then they can win one seat to a weekly final tournament and the big final tournament will take place on May 31st. three people will win a trip to the World Series of Poker.
Ladbrokes Poker created this lottery system option for their players so they can win a seat to the World Series of Poker even if they do not have a lot of time, the money for the buy-in or the skill to play their way through satellites. The lottery has only a twenty cent buy-in so everyone will be able to compete. Players can simply buy-in and then log out and the stack will be played all-in every hand automatically until or if the player goes out.
The satellites start at 12:00 each day and run every half hour from that time. The daily finals take place at 22:30 and the weekly finals take place at 23:00 each Sunday. On May 31st the final tournament will take place and the World Series of Poker prize packages will include the $2,500 buy-in for event #56 of the WSOP in Las Vegas
Event # 56 is a three day No Limit Hold’em event which will begin on July 2nd at 17:00. This event takes place just three days before the main Event takes place. This is a great opportunity for anyone, no matter what your skill level or bank roll, to be able to participate and try to win a seat to the WSOP. Even though it is a side event package, players will still be able to enjoy what the WSOP has to offer, meeting players, and seeing the best in the business compete.
