Win a WSOP bracelet with W$


This, quite simply, is neat.

The fine folks at PokerStars have decided that PokerStars players will be able to use their W$ to buy into some of the preliminary World Series of Poker events. That means, if you're one of those people with a bunch of unused W$ sitting around, you can now use them for a chance to win a WSOP bracelet.

Now, there are a few things you should know before we move on. This offer will only be available for a specific list of WSOP events.

To satisfy the pre-registration requirements of the WSOP, PokerStars has set a deadline for using your W$ to buy into the earlier contests. If you intend to take advantage of this offer, you must register through PokerStars at least ten days prior to the event.

June 3-Event #2--$1,500 No-limit Hold'em
June 4-Event #3--$1,500 Pot-limit Hold'em
June 8-Event #7--$1,000 No-limit Hold'em w/rebuys
June 10-Event #9--$2,000 No-limit Hold'em
June 12-Event #11--$2,000 Pot-limit Hold'em
June 14-Event #13--$5,000 No-limit Hold'em
June 22-Event #22--$1,500 No-limit Hold'em
June 23-Event #23--$5,000 Seven Card Stud
June 26-Event #27--$5,000 Pot-limit Omaha w/re-buys
June 27-Event #28--$5,000 Limit Hold'em
July 1-Event #33--$3,000 No-limit Hold'em
July 2-Event #35--$10,000 Pot-limit Omaha, 2p.m. start

Please note, only W$ can be used to buy into the preliminary events. You cannot use your T$ or cash to supplement your W$ account.

Also, please be sure you can play in the event before using your W$ to buy into a preliminary event. Once PokerStars registers you with the WSOP, it is final. You cannot unregister and if you can't play, you will lose your W$.

In exchange for arranging all of this for you, you will be asked to wear PokerStars clothing during your tournament play.

How do you do it? It's pretty easy.

Simply e-mail with the event you would like to enter. PokerStars will remove the funds from your account and will then email you with a link to the online registration software. Once the registration is complete, you'll simply need to check-in at PokerStars registration desk in Las Vegas to receive your entry.

Before you ask, I should point out, this promotion is not available for the main event of the WSOP.
