A Very Happy Father’s Day At Poker Stars; 200 WSOP Seats Awarded

It was a very happy Father’s Day indeed last weekend as PokerStars.com, the world’s largest online poker room, celebrated in style by hosting a 200-seat WSOP satellite awarding prize packages to the Main Event in Las Vegas. The online poker room replaced its regular PokerStars Sunday Million with this massive WSOP giveaway.

The WSOP satellite tournament featured a $350+$20 buy-in, guaranteeing WSOP Main Event seats to the top 200 finishers. A field of 8,076 topped the guaranteed prize pool enough to eventually award 226 seats in the 2008 World Series of Poker.

The Poker Stars WSOP Satellite tournament lasted just under 19 hours before the final 226 competitors each earned a $12,500 prize packages that includes the $10,000 direct buy-in to the 2008 WSOP Main Event, along with $2,500 for travel and accommodation expenses.

Last year, Poker Stars was proud to send 1,596 players to WSOP, and this year has promised to up the ante, sending a minimum of 2,000 players to the world’s most prestigious live poker tournament. The number currently rests at 1,723, but there is plenty of time to meet (if not exceed) the Poker Stars goal of 2,000 members participating in the 39th Annual WSOP Main Event.
