ClubWPT kicks off WSOP satellites

30 April 2009

LOS ANGELES, California -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Starting May 1, members of the World Poker Tour's subscription poker website, www.ClubWPT.com, will have the chance to win entry into the 2009 World Series of Poker (WSOP) main event. In addition to the $10,000 buy-in, winners will also receive $1,000 in travel allowance.

Manaman420, member and winner of a 2008 WSOP seat, said of his experience: "This is surreal. I am a waiter, and this prize package is worth more than half of my annual salary, truly an opportunity of a lifetime! Poker is a passion of mine and getting to play in the Main Event is any poker player's dream. A dream which [ClubWPT has] made a reality for me and another lucky winner."

Based on sweepstakes law, www.ClubWPT.com is a legal, risk-free way to play poker and blackjack to win cash and prizes. Members subscribe to www.ClubWPT.com for $19.95 a month and receive "tournament points" to buy-in and play in tournaments of all levels, as well as membership benefits including magazine subscriptions, coupons, and other content. Prize payouts vary from tournament points to $20,000 prize pools to WPT Cruises, WPT Boot Camps, WPT main event seats, and more. To date, www.ClubWPT.com has awarded more than $2.4 million in prizes.

The WSOP prize will be awarded to each winner of the "Month End $20,000 Tournament"(s) on May 30 and June 30. The "Month End $20,000 tournament" starts at 9:30pm ET and requires a 500-point buy-in, but members can win entry by placing in the top 10 during any of the daily 10-point "$20,000 satellites" running from May 1 through June 30 at 1:30am, 8:00am, 9:30am, 12:30pm, 3:30pm and 11:45pm ET.
