FREE Entry to the World Series of Poker (Free Tournament)

Real quick post....

Over the last few years, I've developed a new hobby of playing poker. I know this is very trendy right now, but I actually got into it about a year before it really became big on ESPN. Well, the World Series of Poker is THE tournament in poker. It is played in Las Vegas towards the end of July and the entry fee is $10,000 and this year the winner will take home between $7 and $12 Million. There are plenty of online tournaments that require you to play / win in 3 or 4 or 5 successive tournaments to win a seat and pay an entry fee ($5 - $500).

Well, for all of you poker addicts who are looking for their best option to win an entry, here it is. Poker Stars is offering a free, 1-day, top 9 take all tournament. The tournament is only open to bloggers, but a new blog is easy enough to setup on Blogger / WordPress / others that this is not much of a requirement.

See you all in Vegas!!!
