|The worst place to finish in any poker tournament is on the bubble. But finishing on the bubble at the World Series of Poker (WSOP) is the absolute worst finish in the entire sport of poker. Finishing just one seat out of the money at the WSOP means you’ve blown your $10,000 entry fee, labored a week grinding your way to the brink of victory; yet receive NO reward or recognition for your efforts. One seat OUT of the money is every player’s nightmare. |
But Bluff Magazine thinks that finishing on the Bubble isn’t anything to be ashamed of at the WSOP. With 6,600 players competing for a bracelet this year, the 2005 WSOP is the biggest sporting event in history. So to celebrate 2005’s bubble finishers, Bluff Magazine is offering Bubble Insurance, which could put the last five players finishing OUT of the money in 2005, back into the series in 2006, with a seat sponsored by the largest poker magazine in America.
According to Bluff Magazine Editor, Michael Caselli, “Bubble Insurance is a cool way to take some of the sting out of hitting the felt at 100 mph and missing your shot at becoming a millionaire. Besides paying for next year’s WSOP seat, Bluff will feature all the players that cash in on their Bubble Insurance policy in the magazine, giving them the recognition they deserve for beating thousands of other combatants at poker’s big dance.”
Bluff is offering Bubble Insurance for up to 1,000 players in this year’s 6,600 player field. Players can register for Bubble Insurance for free at the Bluff Magazine trade show booth on July 6, 7, 8, and 9th provided that they agree to wear their free Bluff t-shirt throughout the main event. Bubble Insurance players finishing 1-5 places OUT of the money will be awarded a seat at the 2006 WSOP.
If you are playing in the 2005 WSOP or know someone who is, you can refer them to booth 805 at the WSOP Trade Show, July 6, 7, 8, and 9th where they will be able to insure themselves against going out on the bubble. Bluff Magazine Bubble Insurance is free and available to all 2005 WSOP players.
