Pokerstars.com is giving away free entries to the WSOP 2008 main event. What’s the catch? Well, you have to come in the top 50 out of 5,000 in your first level tournament. The blinds go up every 5 minutes. Once you do that, then you get to enter the next free tournament, where you must come in the top 2 to win your entry. Also, you can only enter once a week.
If you’re interested in this, login to your pokerstars account, click on “Events,” then “WSOP,” then click on one of the “WSOP $1M Giveaway: Round 1 Freeroll.”
If you don’t mind paying, there are other ways you can get in. There’s a $33 entry tournament where they give away at least 1 WSOP entry. The closest I got was heads-up where I was all-in with pocket Queens against AK <spade> . The flop brought two <spade> with low cards, and you can guess the rest. Damn! So close.
So far, it doesn’t look like I’m going to make it to the WSOP this year.
