OK, first, this is info comes from a press release (and you KNOW how much I hate regurgitating press releases)…. but still it sounds kind of cool, so I thought I’d let you know about it.
Next month, poker players from more than 115 different nations will converge and compete in the 42nd annual World Series of Poker. Destination? Las Vegas.
In front of ESPN cameras; with more than 70,000 entrants competing for more than $180,000,000 in prize money and pokerâ€™s most prized possessionâ€”a WSOP bracelet, this event is a two-month spectacle of luck, skills and determination.
It kicks off on Tuesday, May 31 and will continue daily, while the main event will begin on July 7, Thursday.
Registrations for the WSOP can be done in several ways. The most common way would be to show up at the Rio Convention Center, where the event will take place, and proceed to buy in. Registration is open 24 hours a day from May 30 until July 10.

This year, Dafa PokerÂ is offering great opportunities to get to Las Vegas, through various ways. All you have to do is choose your dedicated path! Here is how you can win your place:
Join â€œWSOP Warrior Master Leagueâ€ events found at Dafapokerâ€™s official website and also in a dedicated tab in the poker lobby. Join a series of 8 MTT tournaments and finish in the highest possible place.
There are 3 leagues with which a warrior can choose to begin their quest. To conquer the Warrior Master League, players will compete in 6-8 different NL Holdâ€™em events (Depending on the league). The top 50% of registered players who accumulated the highest number of leaderboard points after the events can proceed to the WSOP Warrior Grand Final that will be held on May 24th. The 10 highest ranked players in the end will each win WSOP packages, while the ultimate warrior will win the â€œWSOP Warrior Packageâ€ worth $20,000!
Registration for the promo event can be done by either direct registration, by token, or by qualifying through the WSOP Warrior League satelliteÂ promotion. Players cannot qualify twice to the WSOP Warrior Super League. Once a player has qualified, heâ€™ll be automatically registered to the WSOP Warrior League tournament.
Another way to get a seat for WSOP is playing any of the Satellites, Sit n Goâ€™s and qualifiers in the Dafapoker lobby. You can find all these tournaments under the WSOP 2011 special tab, for as low as $0.33!
All this, and we havenâ€™t even mentioned the WSOP Elite and Dafapoker MTT leaderboard â€“ two major promotions already happening in Dafapoker, sending players to WSOP!
