For the first time in WSOP history, players at home can compete virtually for a coveted bracelet. Check out event #64 on WSOP.com for the $1,000 Online NL Hold’em Event!
Are you still on the fence about whether or not to play play WSOP Event #64? Here are 15 reasons why you should make sure to mark the date on your calendar to play!”
1. There’s Only One Event Like It
This is the one and only online bracelet event to be played in 2015. It is a unique event and is worthy of your participation.
There is only one Super Bowl, one NBA Finals, one MLB World Series and now there is only one online bracelet event at the 2015 World Series of Poker.
This is your only chance in 2015 to become a virtual WSOP bracelet winner.
There can be only one. Make sure you have a chance to be the one.
2. Ever Wanted to Go to Nevada
If you want to play in Event #64, check out the price of airfare to Nevada, the only state where you can play in this online WSOP event.
Those living in the other 29 states must sit back and vicariously watch coverage of the event, and pine for the days we could have logged on and played without fear our bankrolls may vanish.
3. Just to Piss Off Sheldon Adelson
Sheldon Adelson doesn’t want you to play online poker. He thinks you are a threat to his profits. You’re the person he is campaigning against in his attempt to ban online poker.
MONEY MONEY MONEY…..MONEY!!!!— Sheldon Adelson (@SheldonAdelson1) April 22, 2014
So why not play just to piss him off? We can rename this event the First Annual Screw Sheldon Adelson Memorial. Let’s show him that we want legal online poker by putting our money where our mouths are.
4. Flipping For Bracelets in Your Underwear is Fun
Have you ever played poker in your underwear? As creepy as that sounds to some of you, it is quite liberating and something you just can’t do live.
Well you can, but you will be escorted out the casino. Possibly slapped with a fine. Maybe some jail time. And you don’t want to be stuck in your underwear when Big Bertha comes around.
Just imagine going deep in a WSOP event in the comfort of your own home, dancing around in your underwear. Sounds fun right?
5. You Can Satellite Your Way In
You don’t have to put up $1,000 in order to enter into Event #64. WSOP.com will offer satellites to the event at various pricing points. For example, a single table Sit & Go to the event would cost you just $125.
A full list of satellites will be available on WSOP.com in the coming weeks. Register for one and win your way into the event for 1/10th the buy-in or less.
6. WSOP.com Has to Do SOMETHING With All Those Dongles
Dongles here, dongles there, WSOP.com has dongles everywhere. Players that don’t have WiFi on their machines must use a dongle to connect to WSOP.com and they have an ample supply of dongles, maybe too many.
Help your poker brothers out by getting a FREE dongle from WSOP.com and playing in Event #64. You can win some money and give a dongle the home it never had.
7. The People On Twitch Need Something to Talk About
Everybody and their mama seem to be on Twitch nowadays. These Twitchers need something to talk about in order to keep viewers entertained and coming back.
They need you!
Register and play in Event #64 and you will likely have your table broadcast by at least one Twitch channel looking for content to keep people entertained. You can even watch along on Twitch to see what they say about you and your game.
You can be the fuel that keeps Twitch going, at least for a couple of days anyway.
8. You Can Multi-Table Bracelet Events at the SAME TABLE
If you’re playing in a WSOP event at the Rio, you have the ability to multi-table bracelet events without having to leave your seat.
In the past, the only way to multi-table WSOP events was to physically run back and forth between both events. Some players would play in other events during their breaks or would just split time between the two.
Playing in Event #64, you don’t have to run back and forth between both events and can concentrate on making the best plays.
9. You Can Tell Your Grandkids “I Was Online When…”
This will be a historic moment in the history of poker, and you can look back on this event 30 years from now and tell your grandkids about it.
“I was playing in the first ever online WSOP bracelet event in 2015. We only had 6,000 people then, not half the population of New York state.”
Your grandkids will be impressed and you will have a fond memory.
10. Kevmath Might Tweet About You
Kevmath is the guru for all things poker and the Poker Information Manager for Bluff Magazine. If it’s related to poker, chances are he knows it or has it stored in that cyborg brain of his.
He’s also famous for regularly congratulating players on Twitter that take down major events. If you take down Event #64, you can be one of those players:
Congrats to Damjan Radvanov, winner of the WSOPC New Orleans Main Event for $174,514— Kevin Mathers (@Kevmath) May 12, 2015
Admit it; you know you want Kevmath to talk about you on his Twitter. Everyone follows Kevmath and everyone can finally know who you are.
11. Norman Chad Might Make a Bad Joke About You
If you make the final table of Event #64, you will get to play the final table at the Rio in Las Vegas. Parts of the event will certainly be recorded for TV and you may be featured on ESPN.
Better still, Norman Chad may get to make a bad joke about you! What better way to be immortalized than by one of Norman’s bad puns.
12. Imagine Sucking Out on Phil Hellmuth
You know Phil Hellmuth is going to play. He won’t be able to help himself. Phil is obsessed with winning bracelets and he loves large field WSOP events.
Imagine you are down to the final 100 players and everyone is watching your table because Phil Hellmuth is running deep.
You pick up pocket Jacks and move all-in and he insta-calls with aces. Don’t worry, a Jack is coming.
The Jack spikes the turn and Hellmuth goes ballistic in chat. He can’t believe that you hit your two outer after he “played so well” and was “destined to make history.”
You can dodge bullets, baby.
13. If You Play It – More Will Come
Do you want WSOP officials to offer more online bracelet events in the future? Then you need to play WSOP Event #64! The schedule for the WSOP is based on several factors, the most important being popularity of a particular event in the past.
If this event fails to draw a solid crowd, then it will make little sense to go through the trouble of creating the event and going through the advertising necessary to inform players of its existence.
On the other hand, if the event proves wildly popular then we will likely see an expansion of online bracelets staring as soon as 2016. If you play them, more will come.
