Only days away from the most famous tournament in the history of the game – the World Series of Poker Main Event – PokerGO subscribers will get their chance to “Get in the Game,” with cash prizes for the top five players and the eventual winner receiving $5,000.
Registration for this event will take place at the PokerGO booth in the Rio Ballroom hallway on July 5 from 9 AM to 9 PM PDT and on July 6 from 9 AM to 12 PM PDT. Players registering for this event at the booth must show proof of their subscription to PokerGO by providing a valid login email. From there, players will receive a verification token to be taken to the WSOP main cage to officially receive a table and seat location for entry into the event.
“Our PokerGO subscribers are not only avid viewers of live tournaments and original programming, but they are also some of the most passionate poker players on earth,” said Joe Kakaty, president of Poker Central. “The $10,000 freeroll tournament will give subscribers the opportunity to ‘get in the game’ and play on the same felt where their favorite poker pros will soon compete in the WSOP Main Event.”
This tournament will take place alongside other official World Series of Poker events. Each player in this freeroll tournament starts with 5,000 in chips. Blinds and antes will increase every 15 minutes.
“PokerGO’s subscribers have been flocking to Las Vegas from all over the world to indulge in the WSOP action,” said Ty Stewart, executive director, WSOP. “We look forward to rewarding them for their devotion to the game by hosting a fun tournament to show our appreciation.”
