WinStar World Casino will soon host a huge $2,100 Main Event, which will award players $2.5 million as a guarantee. The event is included in thecasinosRiverPoker Series.

The tournament

The main event has become one of Midwest’s big draws over all these years. The 2012 edition will witness PokerNews giving living updates right from the beginning until the end of the tournament, which will be spread across five consecutive days.

The River Poker Series Main Event is scheduled to take place from the 30th of August until the 3rd of September. The final table will take place on the last day at WinStar World Casino’s Global Events Center. A Three Day 1 flight will take place and players who survive them will come together on Sunday the 2nd of September for Day 2.

Over the last two years, the tournament has attracted about 1,400 participants on an average. In 2011, Bronson Tucker outdid a 1,355 player field to walk away with $640,400. The final event featured a guaranteed prize pool worth $2,710,000 and witnessed each of the 10 final table competitors go home with at least $50, 000 each.

Getting in to the tournament

Satellite events from the Main Event have been on since June. The Poker Room Manager from WinStar World Casino, Jay Wiles stated that he is expecting a larger player field this year as the entry methods have also changed.

From this year, players can gain entry in the Main Event with the help of a mix of specially designed lammers and a cash buy-in. These routes will not only gain you entry into the satellite events but also directly into the main event if you are lucky enough.

With the help of lammers players can get entry into preliminary events, mega satellite qualifiers and even the main event in an easy manner. Wiles added that it also gives players more chances for entries and enhances the staff’s ability to run the tournament. The new system implementation demonstrates the company’s dedication to the overall satisfaction of its poker players. WinStar also aims to continue holding the position as the best poker venue in the region.

Poker pros Greg Raymer and Maria Ho have also returned as the official endorsers for the River Poker Series. Both players are poker celebrities and participated in the prelims of the series. They are all ready for a shot at the poker main event.

Ho stated that she is ecstatic to represent WinStar World Casino once again and, is sure Wiles and the entire team at WinStar will go out of their way to make the experience personal. The casino ensures they have a genuine relationship with players, which is the main reason why Ho is proud to represent the company.

WinStar is a great place to play poker; they not only offer generous payouts and bonuses but also ensure utmost player security. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly and efficient and is always ready to help.
