Betfair to pick up $1,000,000 WSOP tab
Betfair Poker is offering an unlimited number of seats for the World Series of Poker. One of the most popular sites on the Cryptologic poker network estimates the tab for this promotion to be a cool 1 Million Dollars.
The stage is set for what will almost certainly be a record year at the 2006 WSOP. There are so many ways to qualify it can make getting there a little confusing. Of course, the best way is via the Poker News WSOP Freerolls. However, if you can't wait for those and want to buy your way into a super satellite, you could do much worse than trying Betfair Poker.
"We expect to spend over $1 million sending players to the World Series. With offers like the Threedom Pass, we have added value to the proposition," said Betfair's Head of Poker, Ben Fried.
At the WSOP the Threedom Pass will be worth $45,000. Absolutely outstanding value in anyones book.
It is estimated that online qualifiers will make up 90% of the runners in this years main event. With almost every online poker room offering some kind of route to Las Vegas this summer, it seems likely that the recent trend of online poker players winning the main event will continue.
