It's still many months away on the horizon but, qualification for the 2006 WSOP main event has already started here in the UK. Shaftesbury Casino and the lavish looking Broadway Casino have joined forces to bring players The World Series of Poker 2006 Poker League.

Starting today, November 28th, running until May 28th next year, players have the chance to accumulate points in the poker league by playing at either or both casinos in their daily £20 re-buy tournaments. The top 100 players with the most points will head for a play-off final on June 7th (at Broadway Casino). The winner from that will be given a main event entry, worth $10,000. Flights, accomodation and £500 spending money.

League points are distributed in each tournament as follows:

1st - 25 points

2nd - 20 points

3rd - 15 points

4th - 10 points

5th - 8 points

6th - 6 points

7th - 5 points

8th - 4 points

9th - 3 points

10th - 2 points

Each player will also receive 10 points upon registration. So, just turning up to play will be enough to kick-start your tally.
