If you enjoy playing in live poker events then chances are you’ve heard of the United States Poker Championship (USPC), which takes place every single year. There are over 20 tournaments on the schedule this year and they’ll all be played in Atlantic City at the Trump Taj Mahal Resort & Casino. The United States Poker Championship starts November 1st and runs until November 22nd with the Main Event kicking off on the 19th of November.

Every year some of the best poker players from around the world travel to Atlantic City to play in the USPC. It’s become one of the most well-known live poker events in the USA and the event is a great compliment to the World Series of Poker. Anyone over the age of 21 is allowed to participate in the USPC and you don’t need to be born or living in the USA in order to play. With the event under two weeks away you’ll want to start booking your travel arrangements now if you want to play in all of the events.

If you only want to play in the Main Event then you don’t need to be in Atlantic City until November 19th. The Main Event has a buy-in of $5250, but right now PokerStars is offering free entry into the event. If you want to win a free spot into the Main Event then you need to simply play the satellite tournaments available on PokerStars and win them. PokerStars is offering satellite tourneys with buy-ins of only a few dollars, so trying to earn a spot in the USPC Main Event isn’t going to break the bank.

With this promotion, PokerStars is only offering free buy-ins to the Main Event and you’ll need to cover all of the other expenses involved in the trip. PokerStars realizes that this may become expensive and they’ve been able to secure an exclusive price for PokerStars players wanting to stay at the Trump Taj Mahal during the event. You can reserve your room online or over the telephone and you just need to make sure you use the code “USPC” when making your reservation.

The United States Poker Championship Main Event is a 3-day event that will be broadcasted on live TV. You may be able to see yourself on TV and if you make the final table you’ll definitely be able to watch yourself on TV. This is a great opportunity for those of you that want to play in a live event, but can’t quite afford all of the expenses. With PokerStars covering the $5250 buy-in it won’t cost much for those of you in the United States to travel to Atlantic City and play in the event.

If you want to try your luck out in the satellite tournaments being held at PokerStars you’ll need an account. Once signed into your account you can find the USPC satellite tournaments under the “Tourney” “Satellite” “Events” tab.
