The final table of the 2008 Main Event hasn’t been played; someone isn’t the holder of over $9m. However, that hasn’t stopped PokerRoom, the most successful site on the OnGame network, offering seats to the 2009 Main Event already.
Every single day from now until June 15, 2009, PokerRoom are running qualifiers to the $10,000 Main Event – a $17,500 package includes flights, accommodation and spending money.
Seven seats a week are being given away in the shape of $540 tournaments, with first place giving the $17,500 package. You can buy in directly to these tournaments or fight your way up from the lowest qualifiers. Buy-ins start from $2.
