With the World Series of Poker hitting the press some of the other tournaments are getting overshadowed, but VC Poker has persevered and announced a $2.5 million guaranteed tournament scheduled for September 7th of this year. With a minimum of $500,000 going to the winner of the tournament it sounds like a good time to buck up and register.
The event has a buy in of $1500 + $80 and they expect over 100,000 players to show up and take a stab at the fat cash. There are other cheaper ways to win a seat at this tournament and most of these involve sub satellites. New customers are also able to qualify for free if they register in July.
Another key way to get in on the action for cheap is earning 2500 player points between the 1st and 5th of July. This will give you an open door into a special satellite on the 15th of July which will also allow you to qualify for this tournament.
Lee Ferris of VC Poker stated “From our recently concluded European Championship of Online Poker II to our highly popular World Series of Poker satellites to our newly announced $2.5 Million GP event, VC Poker is ensuring that this will be a summer of poker to remember. In giving players around the world a free chance to play for a half-a-million prize, we are offering an exceptional opportunity to win a life changing amount of money for no money down. That’s value.”
With all of the possible routes to enter this tournament it seems like the player pool will be enormous. So if you’re not already a member of VC Poker July may be the time to sign up. With all the chances to get in on the money it seems silly not to take a run at it!
