Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) June 30, 2005
The Online Series of Poker (OSOP) is underway. This is the first time in the history of online gaming that a tournament has been held across multiple online poker rooms. Poker players worldwide now have the opportunity to win a share of $100,000 in free prize money by qualifying through online tournaments at participating internet poker rooms.
So far, Greg Langford of Canada and Todd Ivanhoe of the USA have won their respective tournaments at Party Poker and William Hill of the USA and James Campbell of the USA have won their respective tournaments at Ultimate Bet. They will soon be joined by six other tournament winners at the Championship Event in October.
The three other poker rooms, Absolute Poker, PokerRoom and Golden Palace Poker, will each host two tournaments in the coming weeks. One will require a $100 buy-in plus a $9 fee, while the other will have a $250 buy-in and $20 fee.
Also, each poker room is running daily satellites offering entry into an OSOP Main Event. You can earn a seat in an OSOP tournament for as little as $10 via these satellites.
The winner of each tournament will be awarded, in addition to the prize money from the tournament itself, a seat at the Online Series of Poker $100,000 Championship, to be held on October 8, 2005, at the Trump Taj Mahal Casino and Resort in Atlantic City, NJ. The prize package will also include roundtrip airfare from anywhere in the world, airport transfers, accommodations at the Trump Taj Mahal hotel, and meal vouchers. The winner of the Championship will take home $30,000, but even tenth place receives $5,000, so everybody will enjoy a healthy payday.
Additionally, all players who register at the OSOP website will be eligible for the OSOP Leader Board, sponsored by online payment solutions provider Citadel Commerce. The top six money leaders across all ten events will receive cash prizes, ranging from $3,000 to $500.
