Which sites award the most WSOP seats? Is there a convenient source for that information?

I'm thinking you could compare the number of seats to the average site traffic and find the site which has the highest ratio of seats to players. Site traffic is tracked by Online Poker Traffic Rankings And News | PokerScout.

Here's the current stats. My point is that pokerstars has about 15 times the traffic of Ultimate Bet or bodog. Do they award fifteen times the number of seats? :confused:

(The Table doesn't paste properly. Can somebody tell me why?)

Pokerstars awards the most seats and honestly I wouldnt be surprised if the number was 15 times that of Bodog. I know that Stars is giving away a million dollars in their wsop giveaway...

I'm having technical difficulties. I previewed this thread three times, and I see it posted three times. I'd like to delete it, but don't see any editing tools.

Furthermore I tried to paste an object - a table from pokerscout.com - into my post. It wouldn't paste. How are people pasting screenshots, etc?
Thanks

You would have to ask a mod to delete/edit the post. You can only do it for 30 minutes.
You would have to snap a screenshot, then post that pic instead of the table I guess.

PokerStars by far

THANKS.

I've checked around and answered my own question. It looks like Pokerstars does WSOP seats far in excess of their traffic ratio. Their website says they have a 2,000 seat guarantee. Bodog says 100. FullTilt 150. There are probably little idiosyncrasies and maybe other details. But in general, it looks like Pokerstars is the best choice if you're interested in a WSOP seat.

Most seats ratio to size

Hi

Ladbrokes is sending over 110 players to Main Event this year. Given the size (ranked nr 19), that is by far the most of all sites in comparison to size.

pokerstars may be the choice if you have $$.. but if you don't, like myself then ultimate bet and bodog are your best options.

you're only allowed to play in pokerstars wsop freeroll once a week.. bodog has about 5 freerolls a day (maybe more, all points tourneys) and ultimatebet is now doing a wsop freeroll every other hour..

i'm poor, ima freeroll guy and i guess thats the main reason why i dont like pokerstars right now, 90% of their freerolls are for people in other countries..
