The WSOP.com Online Championships begin Friday, Oct. 25 as a nine-event series featuring $500,000 in added money. The series jumpstarts with a $100K Freeroll starting at 7 p.m. followed by eight additional events with added prizes ranging from $10K to $75K. Closing out the series is a $215 buy-in $75K Added No-Limit Hold'em Main Event set for Nov. 2.
As if the huge prizes weren't enough, the winners from each of the nine events will earn a seat into the $100K Championship Freeroll. These players, collectively named the “Online Nine,” will play against one another in a special sit-n-go at the Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino on Nov. 4 before the start of the 2013 WSOP Main Event final table. The nine players will play down to heads-up play, with the final two players returning the following day to compete heads up live at the Penn & Teller Theater. A top prize of $50,000 will go to the winner, while second place will earn $30,000, and third place will take home $20,000.
