How You Win a $3,000 WSOP Package
Participating in this league couldn't be any easier. First you will obviously need to live in one of the countries mentioned above and also have an account on 888poker.
If you don't already have an account, download 888poker through PokerNews to not only be able to participate in the WSOP League tournaments but also receive a free $88 (£20 in the UK) just for creating your account.
This free money will prove to come in handy as the WSOP League tournaments start at a buy-in of just $0.10!
Once you have your account set and ready to go, just find WSOP League tournaments from your country taking place from May 6 to 20 and play to finish as high as you can in every tournament to work your way up your nation's leaderboard.
If you finish among the top 27 players in your country on the leaderboard, you will be invited to compete in the Grand Final Championship on May 23. If you go on to win that tournament, you will represent your country during this year's WSOP with a lavish $3,000 package!
