With November 9th fast approaching, all eyes in the poker world are about to turn to the city where it all started almost 3 months ago, Las Vegas.
Harrah’s and the World Series of Poker instituted one of the biggest changes in the game this year by postponing the play of the final table almost 3 months in an effort to create additional buzz and media attention for the participants and fans. The winner from this year’s event will take home $9,119,517 and the honor of being the Poker Ambassador for the next 12 months.
The world’s biggest online poker room PokerStars have stepped up in a big way by sponsoring 6 or the 9 final table competitors. Industry insiders are calling them “The Six Pack” but PokerStars are referring to them as the “Million Dollar Men” as the 9th place finisher from this year’s event will walk away with at least $900,670 in prize money.
In conjunction with their sponsorship of the “Million Dollar Men”, Stars are running a series of promotions online to help promote this historic event. Quite possibly the best promotion is the “Win a Share in the Million Dollar Men”. These special tournaments allow EVERY player that finishes in the top 100 to win a share of however much that Million Dollar Men member wins at the Main Event.
There are 6 dedicated events running, one for each Million Dollar Man, and at the moment, there are only three chances left for players to grab a slice of the World Series action. The remaining events are scheduled as follows
October 26 16:00 ET Peter Eastgate November 2 16:00 ET Ivan Demidov November 9 16:00 ET Dennis Phillips
These events feature a 500 FPP buy-in with a $100K prize pool in addition to the % share that people can win by finishing in the top 100. You can find these special tournaments under the following tabs: TOURNEY>SPECIAL tabs.
