Info Needed: Starting Local League to go to WSOP Main Event
Hello all... I'm new to this site but have been playing poker for 10 years.
In our local league, we are interested in setting up a structure that allows the league leader to enter the WSOP
Main Event next year.
I'm sure there are leagues out there that have already done this.
I'm looking for how these leagues are run... what has worked and what didn't.
Here is a listing of ideas so far:
- $100 entrance into the league
- 20 - 30 people
- Weekly Tourney (Buy-in + $?? to go into the main event buy-in)
- If a player cannot make a tourney they are still responsible for the buy-in + ?? or provide a substitute.
- 24 weeks (6 month duration)
Also, for those of you that has played in the WSOP ME... how much did it really cost you? Buy-in, accomodations, food, travel, etc. We want to be sure that the winner in the league gets everything paid for.
The tourney in 2009 started July 3rd. What was the deadline to get the registration in? I'm assuming 2010 will start in July as well.
I appreciate anybody that could provide input.
