Competing in the World Series of Poker is a dream for many poker players. It is the Mecca for many in the poker industry as the Main Event Championship title is a coveted title that many want to hold but few ever get the chance to. Average poker players may get to compete in the WSOP once in their lifetime if they save up enough money to pay the $10,000 buy-in or if they earn a seat via satellite but the odds are slim. However Party Poker is giving two players the chance to go to the WSOP and compete in the main event for the next twenty years.
Just yesterday online poker site Party Poker began their much enjoyed contest called the Million Dollar Hand. Players will have up to $1 million dollars they can try to earn from the online poker room. Players simply play in real money ring games at Party Poker and earn Party Points.
Online poker rooms are always looking for fresh faces to represent their websites and bring in more players. Representatives and ambassadors work hard to promote the online poker rooms to bring in new players and create excitement by offering special promotions as well as competing at the online poker rooms.
Many times a poker player will be signed to an online poker room after making a big impression. Many players are signed after they do well in several major tournaments and other times players may do well in one really large tournament to catch the eye of an online poker room. The most recent poker room to add a new player is Party Poker.
Many times poker pros will offer to stake another player so they will attend a certain event or if their bank roll is running low. This is seen time and time again and many times the player will do so well that the staker will earn extra cash for fronting the poker pro.
