The 2012 World Championship Of Online Poker (WCOOP) is just around the corner and you could be playing in its $5,200 buy-in Main Event and doing so for free!
The WCOOP Main Event is the online poker tournament that everyone wants to win due to the prestige attached to becoming a WCOOP champion, plus the fact the eventual winner is guaranteed to take home at least $1,000,000! Last year Thomas "Kallllle" Pedersen was the man who emerged victorious and despite striking a deal when the tournament was five-handed he walked away with an unbelievable $1,260,018.50. This year's winner could be you because PokerNews has three $5,200 WCOOP Main Event tickets to give away, plus an additional $4,500 in cash prizes!
All the prizes are going to be given away over the course of three PokerNews-exclusive freerolls that all take place on Sep. 7 at 14:00 ET (19:00 UK time). The first of the three freerolls is open to new PokerNews and PokerNetwork registered players who make a deposit between Aug. 1-31 and existing PokerNews and PokerNetwork customers who have generated at least 35 VPPs between Aug. 1-31.
The second freeroll is open to existing PokerNews and PokerNetwork players who have accumulated at least 100VPs between Aug. 1-31 whilst the third and final freeroll is available to existing PokerNews and PokerNetwork players who have earned at least 200 VPPs between Aug. 1-31. You can play in all three freerolls if you meet the qualifying criteria, earn just 200 VPPs between Aug. 1-31 and entry to each of the three freerolls will be yours. That is three shots at a $5,200 WCOOP Main Event seat for free!
