PokerNews $5,000 Australian WSOP League Event #2 Today

PokerNews $5,000 Australian WSOP League Event #2 Today 0001

Download 888 Poker to play in an exclusive small stakes league to win a $4,500 package to the World Series of Poker. The top ten league finishers after five events will play for the package in a final on May 30. The second league event is a 8c+1c freezeout on May 2 at 2000 EST (in Australia).

PokerNews and 888 Poker have come together to send one lucky Australian player to the WSOP for a fraction of the price. Our $5,000 Australian WSOP League is a series of micro-stake and freeroll events, which score points on a leaderboard.

The top ten players after five events will do battle in a single table tournament freeroll on May 30 at 2000 EST (in Australia) with a $4,500 WSOP side event package to the winner and $500 to second place.

The $4,500 Package Includes:

  • $1,000 entry to the WSOP Event #54 on July 2 or 3
  • $1,100 for travel
  • 8 nights at the Palazzo Hotel
  • 888 Poker Live Event Merchandise Kit
  • Special VIP event on July 7

There has been a big trend recently for side-event qualifiers to the World Series of Poker, and it is easy to understand why. The packages are treated much more like a holiday rather than like the hard grind of a championship event, and you will get to make the most of eight nights in one of the party capitals of the world.

The only requirement in this series is that you have a PokerNews referred 888 Poker account. There is no need to deposit to play in this series, however, if you do, you will also qualify for an exclusive first-deposit bonus of 100% up to $888.

Like the look of this? You can also participate in our exclusive $9,000 Risk Free WSOP promotion on 888 Poker which awards a further two $4,500 packages through a series of daily, Australian friendly timed, freerolls.
