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.
The sixth annual edition of Grosvenor Casinos’ Goliath tournament series may have begun last week but players are being advised that there is still time to qualify for seats into its prestigious £120 buy-in main event.
Land-based and online gaming products innovator Scientific Games Corporation is set to run its second annual Shuffle Master Classic event next month offering one lucky poker player the chance to walk away with $100,000 in cash.
Land-based casino operator Estoril Sol has been awarded the first online gaming license for Portugal and has teamed up with platform provider Gaming1 to launch the new EstorilSolCasinos.pt domain.
