The World Series of Poker (WSOP) is obviously creeping closer and closer.
With so many online poker rooms adding satellite qualifiers to make it to Las Vegas for the May 31-July 19 extravaganza the latest addition to the list would hardly stand out if it wasn't one of the "big boys".
The latest is TitanPoker.com, which is providing players with “inexpensive buy-ins” and “multiple ways to the World Series of Poker” to compete for some of the 58 bracelets on offer – and in particular the $10,000 no limit hold’em main event.
Packages for the main event are valued at $13,000 and will be awarded to the winners of Titan Poker’s Tuesday and Sunday Super Satellites. Each prize includes the $10,000 buy-in for the main event, of course, but also seven nights’ stay at a luxury Vegas hotel and $1770 to cover spending money and flights.
However, Titan Poker isn’t only focused on the main event as the site also has packages on offer for event No.42, the $10,000 pot limit Omaha tournament, worth $13,000, and also two no limit hold’em tournaments – events No.48 and 54 that have $1500 and $1000 buy-ins respectively – that are valued at $5500 and $3500.
Additionally, $100,000-worth of WSOP prizes are up for grabs in Titan Poker’s Warrior League. Eight league events are running for players to compete in for a buy-in, with the top finisher picking up a $20,000 package that includes entry to the main event. Meanwhile, the leaderboard’s top 10 will also automatically collect a WSOP package.
But there’s more, as a multi-table tournament (MTT) race rewards each of the leaderboard’s top 20 players with a $5000 WSOP Experience Package.
In other news, PokerStars.com is offering $200,000-plus in prizes every week for six weeks as part of their Game of Your Life promotion.
PokerStars will host two freeroll finals every Sunday from April 17 to May 22, with one at 21:00 GMT for the Americas and the other at 15:00 GMT for the remainder of the world.
The first five final winners in each territory will collect $100,000, but the sixth – a Grand Final – will provide $10,000 in cash and a $100,000 Dream Sports Package.
The package allows the winner – and friends – to visit any of the world’s sporting events and includes accommodation and travel expenses.
Feeder freerolls, which are running every day, are located in the tournament section of the PokerStars lobby.
Meanwhile, The Poker Channel and Pokerheaven.com have teamed up for the poker room’s latest promotion to crown a European Poker Hero.
Regional satellites have already started at Poker Heaven that cost just 5FPPs – that’s frequent player points – to enter, although there are also last-chance qualifiers, cash-added points races, and freerolls available, with the goal of winning a prize package valued at €10,000 (approximately $14,400).
The top three from each region’s points race, last-chance qualifier and online final will make it to a 30-player Online Final on Thursday, April 28.
