WSOP.com dealing out $3k WSOP Circuit seats at Horseshoe Casino Baltimore
For the next three days, online poker players in New Jersey can win a $3,000 prize package that includes a seat in the WSOP Circuit Main Event at the Horseshoe Casino in Baltimore. Online satellites began at WSOP.com yesterday and will continue through March 1, guaranteeing a minimum of 1 prize package per day.
The World Series of Poker Circuit series got underway in Baltimore, Maryland on Thursday with the first of 12 events in the series. But those who already made the trip to partake in the opening tournaments will be missing out on the chance to win a seat into the WSOP Circuit Main Event next weekend. That’s because poker players will have to be physically located in New Jersey in order to win one of the multiple $3,000 prize packages from WSOP.com.
The online poker room is hosting a $30 WSOP Circuit Qualifier, with Re-buys and Add-ons ($27.30 + $2.70 each) every evening at 6:00pm sharp until Sunday, March 1. At least one player will win a $3,000 prize package to the Main Event in each day’s online satellite.
The total number of prize packages awarded will depend on the level of participation. For every $3,000 in the prize pool (every 110 players registered), another $3k prize package will be awarded.
Each WSOP Circuit prize package will include the $1,675 buy-in for the WSOP Circuit Main Event, automatically submitting the winner’s entry fee and name for pre-registration. However, winners are responsible for complete the registration process in person prior to the start of the Main Event.
The remainder of the $1,325 prize money will be deposited into the winner’s online poker account at WSOP.com. This money can be used at the poker site or withdrawn, whichever the player wishes. However, winners are responsible for all travel expenses, accommodations, meals, etc.
The WSOP Circuit Main Event is scheduled for two Day 1 flights; Friday, March 6th and Saturday, March 7th, both starting at 12:00 noon on their respective days. It is up the each winner to decide which day they prefer to register for.
The Main Event will take place at the Horseshoe Casino located at 1525 Russell Road in Baltimore, Maryland. The eventual winner of the tournament will receive a WSOP Circuit Ring, along with an automatic invitation to compete in the WSOP Circuit National Championships coming up in May.
WSOP Circuit Satellite Terms
Prizes are non-transferable, so those who can’t make it to Baltimore next weekend should abstain from participating in the online poker satellites this weekend. However, it should also be noted that WSOP.com members in New Jersey can win more than one satellite and prize package.
According to the terms of the promotion, if any single player wins more than one satellite qualifier, WSOP.com will deliver the first prize package per the original conditions. Any other winnings will be paid as $1,675 (the amount of the Main Event buy-in) in online tournament tickets, and the other $1,325 in cash (via the player’s online poker account). Tournament tickets will be awarded in segments of 8x T$200, 1x T$50 and 1x T$25.
