It always hurts to see a big chunk of your bankroll get put on one big buy-in. We want to help you avoid that big investment by making it much more affordable.
The World Championship Of Online Poker (WCOOP) that starts at PokerStars on September 7 is a great series, and the $40,000,000 guarantee offered by the room is definitely a great treat. But, how about the buy-ins?
A seat at the $10 million guaranteed Main Event will cost you $5,200, one at the $2 million guaranteed Event #23 is set for $10,300, and the chance to play the $1 million guaranteed Event #9 will make your bankroll look $1,050 thinner.
So, the question is: are you willing to spend that much money to play in these world class events?
How to Save $210
Imagine this: On September 14, the WCOOP Event #22 will give players the chance to compete for a guaranteed prize pool of $1 million. And, although the buy-in is not one of those in the crazy-high tier, it will still set you back a good $215.
It's a great event — it has a top guarantee — but it comes with a buy-in that looks like the price of iPhone right before a new model comes out for sale. It's cheaper than it used to be, but you will still have to pay some good money to have it.
So, here's the deal. If you think you are good at poker and you believe you have what it takes to prove it at the table, we are giving you a chance to play Event #22 for as little as $3.30, not a single dime more.
On September 8, PokerStars will run a special $3.30 satellite to the WCOOP $1 million event open exclusively to PokerNews players. Play it, show everyone how good you are, and you will enjoy your seat and the $210 you'll have saved.
What's even better is that the satellite will not only award the winner of the tournament, as it will actually give away 18 tickets to the WCOOP Event #22. Which means that, yes, even if you don't manage to prove that you are the best of them all, you still have a pretty good chance to get yourself a cheap WCOOP ticket.
