PokerStars brings back Main Event Passport

ps_news_thn.jpgIt's a choice. You win, you go where you want. It's how the Main Event Passport works. For a limited time, you don't have to worry about finding the satellite for the specific event you want to play. Play for a Main Event Passport and decide later. Doesn't sound like real life to you? Try this:

Imagine yourself sitting in a pub late one night. It's last call, and the bartender is ready for you to finish your pint so he can get home to his cats. The bell over the door dings, and a mysterious guy in a long dark coats walks in.

"I'm sorry, we're clo--," the barman begins. The man in the coat holds up a hand, and the dude behind the bar shuts his mouth. He rubs a clean glass with a dirty towel and watches at a distance.

The man in the coat turns to you. "What do you want?" he says.

"What do you mean?" you ask. "I'm fine. Just finishing up."

"What do you want?" he says. "Anything. It's your choice."

In your head, you make your choice. Before you open your mouth to give voice to your greatest wants and desires, the Man in the Coat (of course he's taken on capital letters in his name) removes something from his breast pocket and puts it on the table in front of you.

As he walks out into the night, the barman says "G'night, stranger." You look down in front of you and see something that looks like this.


That doesn't sound like real life, either? Very well, then. Here's the skinny:

For the next two months, PokerStars will be offering a wide variety of satellites that can earn you a Main Event Passport. Win one, and you get to pick the main event you want to play. Here are your five choices:

  • World Series of Poker (WSOP)
  • PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA)
  • European Poker Tour (EPT)
  • Latin American Poker Tour (LAPT)
  • Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT)
  • The package itself is worth $13,000 and good for almost any main event at any of the above tours or festivals (see the Frequently Asked Questions for any clarification you might need). PokerStars has cash, FPP, and Steps satellites available for every bankroll. Just look under EVENTS and PASSPORT to start playing today.

    Get to work. You only have until July 1st to win your Main Event Passport. If you can't do it by then, you're going to have to count on the bartender and his cats to keep you company while everybody else is playing the main event of their choice.
