There’s Still Time to Make the WPT Championship

WPTThe World Poker Tour (WPT) Championship main event begins tomorrow, but there is still time to qualify for the $25,500 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em tournament – if you happen to be anywhere near Las Vegas, that is!

Rightly considered one of the most prestigious titles to collect in poker – not to mention the big bucks – the WPT Championship main event at The Bellagio will certainly attract some of poker’s biggest names with the huge buy-in ensuring the winner will surely leave with more than $1 million.

If you are hoping to emulate one-time World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet winner Scott Seiver’s success from last year – when the American picked up $1,618,344 for outlasting a stellar 220-player field – then you should head on over to The Bellagio to enter one of the three $2,620 buy-in Super Satellites that are still to be run.

Chance to Follow in Footsteps of Yevgeniy Timoshenko

Half the Super Satellites to the main event have been played, but there are two more today and one tomorrow so, you never know, you might be joining an impressive list of winners that already includes Seiver, of course, as well as the likes of Yevgeniy Timoshenko, Tuan Le, David Chiu, Carlos Mortensen and David Williams.

Each satellite will award as many seats to the $25,500 Championship event as possible so, don’t delay, get your poker face on and set your sights on the prize.
