What is the qualifying process one must go through to make the WSOP Main Event? I realize the minimum age is 21 and I am 19 now but I want to try sometime in my life and I just want to know what the process is. Where can I go to qualify online or perhaps in person?
So if I had a spare $ 10,000 I would just have to pay that and automatically be in?

Answer by Roma 1976
You can either pay the entry fee ($ 10000) out of pocket. Or you can win it through a satellite. Which is where you pay a smaller amount to enter for a chance to win your entry fee. This is very popular online as well as in casinos in Vegas (or everywhere really). You can possibly qualify for a few dollars online. But due to US Govt regulations, the online poker sites now will just transfer your entry fee into your account. So it is up to you to actually use the money for the WSOP or something else.

The 1998 World Series of Poker was an event that had a lot of high expectations after the amazing event that had taken place the year before. The World Series of Poker in 1997 featured Stu Ungar’s comeback from his drug addiction to play. He made his comeback with a bang and was able to take the whole tournament. That story had many hoping that Ungar would be able to shake his habit permanently.

 

Unfortunately Ungar was not able to play again in 1998. Just like in previous years, his drug addictions had come back to bite him again. This addiction was unfortunate and left a slight cloud of regret over the event in 1998. After the win the previous year it seemed that he would have the strength to overcome the issues that had plagued him for so long.  That year Ungar would eventually pass away. The venue would later celebrate his life and accomplishments. Although he was not able to play and his death was imminent, there were many bright spots in the tournament.

 

Among the bright spots was the fact that the tournament continued to grow. There were 350 entrants in the tournament and the level of competition was higher than ever. The excitement surrounding the tournament was clearly growing and the popularity of the event was slowly preparing for the explosion that was to come.

 

With so many players at tables the field understandably narrowed very quickly. Certain players stood out from the rest of the field. These players included the like of Lee Salem, T.J. Cloutier, Kevin McBride, Scotty Nguyen and Dewey Weum. These players managed to mow down the competition en route to making it deep into the tournament.

 

As things progressed, these players were the last ones standing at the final table. While there were five players remaining at the table it was clear that the night could only belong to one of them. It was unclear as to which player would remain as Nguyen and McBride were left on the table. They battled in a number of hands until things came down to the last hand.

 

The last hand featured one of the famous lines of the history of the World Series of Poker. Nguyen felt like he had a good hand and said, “You call this one and it’s all over, baby.” This was a bold statement from Nguyen, but McBride didn’t buy it. He assumed that Nguyen was just bluffing and decided to call his bluff saying, “I call. I play the board.”

 

After that comment there was a load of excitement in the room, waiting to see which player would come out on top through the trash talk. As play continued Nguyen would pull out of reach from McBride, claiming the World Series of Poker championship for the year 1998.

 

This play between Nguyen and McBride has been remembered ever since. This was a classic moment in the history of the World Series of Poker that lives on today.

Social media is truly an amazing thing. Not only can you stay connected with friends on Facebook, sites like Facebook and Twitter make it easier than ever to stay informed about your favorite interests. Now the World Series of Poker and the World Series of Poker Europe are available as Twitter feeds.

The World Series of Poker Europe kicked off in London at the Empire Casino. Right away, poker room fans were able to keep up with the tournament from Twitter. For those with Twitter on their smartphones, that means they can even check out the action while at work. Of course many poker room review sites were also tracking the WSOP Europe action and doing frequent live updates. But following a Twitter feed is easy, especially with Twitter for smartphones.

As Twitter followers know, the WSOP Europe got a late start this year. The original plan was to have 37 tables. That was taken down to 34 tables just before the event began. The reason for removing three tables was exclaimed via Twitter feed to be player comfort. It seems the room was just too packed.

Of course with a full house of players, removing three tables meant rearranging the schedule a bit. That took time. Things quickly got back on track, and by the second day the prize pool was already over £500,000 British pounds. That’s nearly $ 800,000 US dollars.

The WSOP Europe Twitter feed also allows administrators to retweet players’ Tweets and respond to both players’ and fans’ questions. The daily schedule can be found on the Twitter feed. The tournament will last for 12 hours and 45 minutes each day. The tournament picks up at 2 p.m. GMT and wraps up for the day at 2:45 p.m. GMT. Each round lasts one hour. 20 minute breaks are taken every two rounds. The dinner break is a meager 90 minutes. The mood in the WSOP Europe poker room is both serious and fun. The higher the prize pot gets, the more serious the mood becomes. Player and administrator exhaustion adds to the solemn atmosphere.

But the WSOP Europe Twitter feed doesn’t supply all of the information fans may want to keep up with. Chip counts and live updates were mostly posted on the official WSOP website, wsop.com. From there, many poker room review sites were able to help keep updated as well. Poker room review sites and wsop.com are also the best places to find photographs of the event. You can just see the stakes getting higher by the gleam in the players’ eyes.
