WSOP.com Summer Series Kicks Off Tonight At The Rendezous, Brighton
The WSOP.com Online Poker Summer Series kicks off tonight at the Rendezvous, Brighton with the first of four events. The casino has guaranteed at least £22,000 will be paid out across the four tournaments so head down to Rendezvous tonight and get involved in the Summer Series.
The series actually started yesterday but with a £10+£5 rebuy satellite to Saturday's Main Event. Tonight marks the first official event, the £100+£10 No Limit Hold'em tournament. Players will start with 10,000 chips and should they somehow manage to dust those off before the end of Level 3 they can simply re-enter by paying another £110. This particular tournament has a £5,000 guarantee slapped on it so first place should be a nice little bankroll booster for someone.
Friday sees another rebuy satellite take place before an £80 buy-in Re-entry tournament takes place in the evening. For £80 players receive 8,000 chips and, like tonight's tournament, can re-enter up to the end of the third level of place. Again, the prize pool is guaranteed to reach at least £5,000.
As with most poker festivals the most anticipated tournament on the schedule is the Main Event. The WSOP.com Online Poker Summer Series' Main Event is a 2-day tournament that costs £220 to enter. For this money players receive 25,000 chips, a 60-minute clock and for those who manage to make it that far a complementary buffet is provided. Re-entry is available for four levels and £12,000 is guaranteed in prizes!
As a bonus, players who choose to buy into the Main Event on WSOP.com will have the £20 registration fee waived by the Rendezvous, effectively knocking 10% off the buy-in! For those value-hunters out there, this is a massive saving and one PokerNews can help you make.
Download WSOP.com via PokerNews links and you will be able to help yourself to an Instant £20 bonus or a 150% match up to £500 welcome bonus. Add this to the £20 you will save by buying into the Summer Series Main Event and you could be quids in!
Rounding out the mini-festival is an £85 No Limit Hold'em Deepstack Turbo event. Here players start with a generous stack of 30,000 chips but the clock is set to 15-minutes making for an interesting dynamic. Unlike the previous events this one is played to a freezeout format.
