Mini WSOP at Full Tilt Poker (MSOP)
Do you dream of a 54-event long poker festival this summer? Maybe you're checking your bank account for the umpteenth time only to confirm that you cannot afford to play the WSOP.
Only one percent of the buy-in
Well, despair not, Full Tilt Poker has thought of us who will sit at home longing for WSOP 2008. Thanks to their Mini WSOP, MSOP, the excitement of the WSOP now becomes available to all of us.
At least one percent of it. Every day from May 30 to July 5, that day's WSOP event is mirrored on Full Tilt Poker, with a buy-in amounting to one percent of the corresponding WSOP buy-in.
Contrary to the real WSOP, the MSOP events offer guaranteed prize pools.
Play the big H.O.R.S.E. event
There'll be seven $100 championship events, a $500 HORSE championship on June 22, and eventually this long trail of competitions leads up to the grand finale, the $100 MSOP Main Event on July 5.
To also mimic the coveted WSOP bracelets (very respected gold bracelets going to the winner of each WSOP event,) Full Tilt throws in a limited-edition watch in addition to the first-place prize money in each MSOP event.
Win your way to WSOP 2009
As an extra bonus, there's a special prize for endurance. The winner of the MSOP Leaderboard can earn a $10K worth ticket to the 2009 WSOP Main Event.
Due to the openness of the web, some minor adjustments have been made. The Ladies Event, the Senior Event, and the Casino Employee event have been converted to regular, open events.
Of course, the Main Event will not be a ten day event. And the Main Event final table will not be delayed until November.
