On May 12, 2008 AOL announced that Games.com, a free online gaming resource, will award six seats to the World Series of Poker Main Event in Las Vegas this year. Between May 4th and June 15th players can complete in online no limit Texas Hold’em games that are entirely free to register and play in. At the end of the promotion the six top players will secure a seat to the Main Event! Who can knock free travel accommodations to Las Vegas alone, much less a seat!
The way it works is each week the players will participate in daily qualifying tournaments which will earn them a way into the Sunday “winner takes all” tournaments that will regularly occur during the promotion. The winners of these tournaments will receive their seats as well as the travel expenses for the Main Event in Las Vegas.
Jeffery Pollack, the Commissioner of the World Series of Poker said, “For the past three years, AOL has offered amateur poker players something they can’t find anywhere else – a free opportunity to play at the World Series of Poker Main Event.”
So make sure you check out http://www.games.com/poker and try your hand at winning a free seat at the Main Event of this year’s World Series of Poker. To win a free seat would be nothing short of amazing and even if you do awful once you get there the free trip to Vegas and back is well worth the time expended to go. The main event this year is July 3, 2008 so write it in on your calendars and go play some poker!
