Congratulations RiverNoHelp,You have been automatically registered for the "WSOP Main Freeroll " tournament at UltimateBet Poker. This event begins online on Thursday July 20, 2006 at 08:00:00 PM (Eastern).
Above is part of the e-mail sent to me yesterday after I qualified for the Finals.. I had to make my way through 2500 other players and finish in the top 50 to make it!..When the tournament reached 50 people it automatically stopped and everyone was then entered in the finals on July 20th.. I was 28th in chips when play ended, which was amazing because barely an hour and a half before I was nearly out of the tournament.. I was down to about 1400 in chips but somehow managed to stay alive and push that total all the way up to 72000 in chips! There are expected to be about 3000 players registered for this Finals Freeroll which pays just one place!.. First place is..drumroll please.. Your buy-in to the WSOP
Main Event and $2000 in travel expenses.. So basically I have a 1 in 3000 shot of being in Vegas in the next two weeks playing in the biggest poker tournament ever! Ultimate Bet is running these tournies for the next week or so and it's free.. Once you make it past the first hour or so the donkfest usually ends and you get to actually play poker.. Wish me luck!
