Pre-registration for 2009 WSOP available

Pre-registration for 2009 WSOP available

Thursday, 12 March 2009

It seems like just last week that we crowned a new champion when Peter Eastgate’s straight shipped him a bracelet, a $9m prize and the title of youngest ever champion.

Now, only just over four months since Eastgate won the title, you can register for the 2009 WSOP. The 57 events – two more than last year – will run from May 26 – July 15 at the Rio.

"As now customary, no alternates will be seated," said Jack Effel, WSOP tournament director. "We encourage players to pre-register early to guarantee their seats.” If an event reaches capacity it will be declared a sellout.

To reflect the necessary tightness of peoples’ purse strings today, there are three cheap $1,000 events. In addition there is a $40k event to represent the 40 years of the WSOP, and rebuy events have been removed.
