WSOP suicide squad at 888Poker
The main spring XL Inferno poker series at 888Poker is about to end. The Main Event with a $ 500,000 guarantee will take place tomorrow. To replace the two-week XL Inferno, the Eights have already prepared a new and more tempting offer - the opportunity to qualify and take part in the most prestigious live poker tournament - the WSOP Main Event. Tours to the World Series can be obtained in two ways: "Road to Vegas" and "888poker Squad"
Road to Vegas
An easier, cheaper way to take part in the biggest poker festival of the year. At stake is the buy-in to the WSOP tournament of the same name "888 $ Crazy Eights", 3 nights accommodation in a comfortable hotel and $ 1000 for pocket money.
The "Road to Vegas" freeroll is held daily, and you can qualify for it by winning a hand with pocket eights at NL5 + or in tournaments from one dollar. Satellites are held at 23:00 Moscow time.
The poker room 888poker is the main sponsor of the World Series of Poker for the fifth time in a row. And along with sponsorship, a tradition was laid to send special teams to the WSOP to protect the honor and dignity of the room itself. The concept of "team" is rather arbitrary here, since teamplay in a live poker tournament with a buy-in for $ 12,600 is not the most sensible idea and even the general sponsor cannot afford it. Therefore, the team interaction is purely formal - the symbols of the room on the players during the ME WSOP.
This year, it was decided to count any person qualifying for the World Series Main Event as part of the 888poker Squad through the eight qualifiers. Winning a ticket also promises additional benefits in the form of:
- free travel (which is unprecedented, every pensioner in our country has such a right without any victories in poker satellites) to the hotel where the tournament is held;
- free healthy meals;several trainings with professionals from the 888 team (you can see a fragment from the training in the photo with poker professor Kara Scott);
- free monthly subscription to the PokerGO channel (or better on Netflix).
The lucky player who has held the longest at the WSOP ME will be eligible to play at the WSOP ME 2020.
There are several ways to qualify for the World Series of Poker Main Event:
- starting from the bottom in the form of a $ 16.5 satellite running daily;
- starting from the intermediate stage (satellite for $ 109) with 5 tickets to the final stage of qualification;
- immediately depositing $ 1050 for the right to take part in the battle for the package ̶M̶a̶l̶̶b̶o̶r̶o̶, ̶ ̶m̶n̶o̶g̶o̶r̶a̶z̶o̶v̶y̶y̶, ̶ ̶k̶o̶t̶o̶r̶y̶y̶ ̶m̶o̶zh̶n̶̶o̶ ro̶zh̶n̶̶̶o̶
Recall that the WSOP-2019 begins on May 29 with warm-up tournaments in warm-up disciplines and with warm-up buy-ins. The hottest kicks off on June 24 with the $ 50,000 Poker Players Cahmpionship kick-off and the 2019 WSOP finishes on July 16. Location of the tournaments: Las Vegas, of course. Sochi also submitted an application (but this is inaccurate), but the Pokerstars management decided that it was enough for them to call this city a separate client for Russian players - Pokerstars Sochi. Las Vegas did not get such an honor, the local mayor wipes his tears with green pieces of paper with Franklin and prepares to show these Russians that the WSOP is still a pretty good tournament :)
Whether you are planning to make your way to Las Vegas using the simplified procedure (Road to Vegas) or hardcore (888poker Squad) - in any case, help will never be superfluous. To effectively advance through the stages of this survival qualifying battle, you must have as much detailed information about your opponents as possible. The best tool for informing you about the skill level of your opponents is Sharkscope. Subscribing to the service will allow you to pick up the right lines of drawing against seasoned professionals and defeated fish and break into the "Sin City".
The road to Vegas looks simple only at first glance. After all, to increase the chances of getting the coveted ticket to Las Vegas, you will need to win with pocket 88s every day. That is, there is no way to do without skill and dense grind. The ideal tool for multi-tabling is 888Caption poker software. And after the upgrade of the 888 poker client, its value has grown even more - choosing each time from three buy-in options for EACH manual landing at the table - the pleasure is much lower than average.
