World Series of Poker Main Event Guide

The World Series of Poker is the most popular tour on the poker scene and thousands of poker players from around the world have been entering WSOP events every year. The numbers of entrants into the World Series of Poker events have increased every year and now the prize pools have reached extreme levels turning everyday people into millionaires.

The highlight of the World Series of Poker every year is the main event which takes place at the end of the tour and features the most entrants and biggest prizes. Last year Peter Eastgate of PockerStars won the WSOP bracelet and the massive $9,152,416 prize pool that came along with winning the event. The main event costs $10,000 every year for players to enter and anyone can enter the tournament as long as you have the $10,000 buy-in ready in cash come time for the event.

Not everyone has $10,000 to spend on a seat in the event though and this doesn’t mean you can’t play in the tournament. Almost all of the main online poker rooms offer satellite events for players where you can win seats into the WSOP main event plus accommodations and travel included. This is by far the best way to enter the tournament for everyday folk like ourselves. Satellite events into the WSOP main event are always filled with other players looking to win there chance to play in the event though and this makes it difficult to win a seat. You can enter one of these events by playing on today.

I would suggest that if you’re looking to enter the WSOP main event that you spend time looking at all the poker rooms offering satellite packages. Try to find a poker room that doesn’t have as many players as the popular poker rooms and you’ll have a better chance at winning one of the packages. If you happen to win a seat to the WSOP main event then you’ll want to start practicing right away so that you’re prepared for the event since it could change your life if you place well.

Cash game aren’t really good practice for the main event because it doesn’t offer any structure or blind changes. You need to play in MTT’s or multi-table tournaments through the online poker rooms to get the most effective practicing in for the main event. In the main event you don’t start with very many chips and the action is usually pretty crazy in the first few blind levels. You’ll want to take it slow in these levels on and try to just wait for one big hand so that you can double up your stack before the levels change. Playing tight and aggressive is the only way to go in the WSOP main event and with some luck you’ll win your battles when they happen.

If you’ve never been able to play in the WSOP main event before it’s like nothing else you’ve experienced in poker and it’ll be the best time of your poker career. I suggest playing the satellite events every year in order to try and win a seat to the event and if you can’t do that then try and win $10,000 through online poker so you can buy your seat.
