Win a free Seat at the World Series Of Poker
The World Series of Poker is a yearly poker tournament held annually in Las Vegas, Nevada. For poker players around the world, participating in the World Series of Poker is a dream come true. The winner of the tournament receives WSOP bracelet, the most coveted trophy a poker player can win, as well as a multi-million dollar grand prize. For most players, an entry into the tournament can be difficult and expensive. However, some top online poker sites offer freeroll tournaments, with the champions winning free seats in the World Series of Poker.
Pacific Poker holds an annual World Series of Poker qualifier tournament. The qualifier can be won by playing satellite tournaments for as little as one dollar, buying directly into a qualifier for $500, or by playing for free in a freeroll. The grand prize package this year was worth $17,000, and included a coveted seat in the World Series of Poker.

Each year, the World Series of Poker is televised on ESPN. ESPN uses a tournament on their Poker Club web page to promote the event, and offer users a chance to win an entry to the World Series of Poker. Players compete in a weekly tournament each Sunday for six weeks, and the top twenty-five players from each tournament qualify for the final tournament. The winner of the final tournament earns a free seat in the World Series of Poker. This year, ESPN’s Poker Club tournament was won by Eric Mullen, a 37-year-old transportation planner for the Michigan Department of Transportation. He defeated 441 opposing players to earn his spot in the World Series.
