Some players in Nevada have the luxury of a poker bankroll that includes $10,000 set aside for their World Series of Poker Main Event buy-in.
Most players do not.
That is where WSOP.com comes in and gives the rest of us the option of winning a seat for much less money. Since most people only dream of playing the Main Event, which this year has a wild and crazy $10 million guarantee for the winner, it doesn’t hurt to take a chance online to win a seat and compete for that kind of life-changing money.
Climb the Steps to a Main Event Seat
The WSOP Steps are an easy and organized way to start with $11 and turn it into a $10,000 tournament seat.
Start with that $11 and play a Step 1 Sit & Go on WSOP.com. The first and second place finishers receive a Step 2 ticket worth $30. It goes up from there:
- Play $11 Step 1 SNG to win $30 Step 2 ticket.
- Play $30 Step 2 SNG to win $81 Step 3 ticket.
- Play $81 Step 3 SNG to win $215 Step 4 ticket.
- Play $215 Step 4 SNG to win $600 Step 5 ticket.
- Play $600 Step 5 SNG to win $10,000 Main Event seat.
Keep in mind that a player doesn’t have to start at Step 1. If your bankroll offers the opportunity to play a $30 SNG, start at Step 2 and work up from there. Players can begin at any step they wish and continue on until they win a seat.
Also, players can take their steps in other directions. They can use a Step 5 ticket to play a satellite for a $1,500 WSOP tournament seat, of which there are still several events left to play at the 2014 WSOP. Or they can use the $215 Step 4 ticket to compete in the weekly $215 buy-in Sunday $15K tournament that takes place online each week.
Main Event Less than Two Weeks Away!
The promotion and ability to win that $10K Main Event seat ends on July 5, which is the first day of the Main Event at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. That means less than two weeks remain in the WSOP Steps program.
The good thing is that the SNGs run all day every day. For anyone in the state of Nevada, play can begin today, with plenty of time to climb the steps and win a seat.
The WSOP $10K NLHE World Championship is called the Main Event because it’s the premiere poker tournament in the world. And this year, with the $10M first place prize guarantee, it’s going to be the largest in years.
Be a part of it. Win your seat online and put your poker skills to work to win $10 million. Make your poker dreams come true!
