WCOOP: Extreme satellites on the way

wcoop2009-thumb.jpgThe World Championship of Online Poker is just a few weeks away and PokerStars has just announced a way you can get into the multi-million dollar events for the price of a Happy Meal.

WCOOP Extreme Satellites are offering up hundreds of WCOOP seats for just pennies on the dollar. Beginning August 21 and lasting until August 29th, PokerStars will run Extreme Satellites three times a day. Why so extreme? First off, you can get in for as little as $5.50 (which is pretty much the bargain of the century for events that offer life-changing prize money).

Better? PokerStars is adding hundreds of seats to the satellite pools. The word of the day, friends, is "value."

As you know by now, Jovial Gent took down the Main Event last year for some ungodly amount like $1.7 million. Now is your chance to head in the same direction. Even if you have a baby bankroll now, you can be running with the big dogs in just a matter of days.

So, start amassing your change now. Collect a few bucks. Raid the sofa cushions. Take a metal detector to the beach. Beseech your maker for pennies from heaven. Do (almost) whatever you need to do, but get yourself into the Extreme Satellites next weekend!

You will be able to find the events in the PokerStars lobby by selecting 'Events', 'WCOOP' and 'All' and typing 'WCOOP Extreme' into the Tourney Filter.

For a full schedule, see the WCOOP Extreme Satellites web page.
