The seat at the WCOOP is valued at $1050, and is to be auctioned off on Sunday, September 19.
“PokerStars is a brand that resonates through the poker fraternity and we’re delighted to have them on board with Bidibot,” said Bidibot CEO, John Tabatabai. “Partnering with such a renowned and trusted brand really brings home the value we’re offering with our penny auctions and we’re very excited about the packages that we’ll be rolling out in the near future… watch this space!”
The move by PokerStars could result in the seat being sold for, literally, pennies on the dollar, if past similar auctions are any indication. For example, a seat at the largest poker tour in the UK, the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour, (GUKPT) sold last week for a mere $16.03.
The prize pool for this year’s PokerStars WCOOP is a guaranteed $50,000,000.
