The good news is that Cake Poker is still open to players from the United States. And the better news is that they want to help you “cut your own slice” of the WSOP 2011. Now, over at Cake Poker, they’re still expecting the WSOP to host more than 70,000 people. That’s where there might be some bad news. There is thought out there that the Black Friday Poker Shutdown may mean fewer players showing up at the World Series of Poker. But if you want to go, Cake Poker wants to help.
There are two different prize offerings up for grabs at Cake Poker. One is a $2,500 Vega Spree Prize Package. You can win your way up to the Vegas Spree package by taking part in Sit & Go step tournaments that start at as little as $2.00, well actually $1.10 if you start with a satellite tournament. Now the $2,500 prize won’t get you a seat at the WSOP Main Event but it may help you get there.
The big prize you want to go after is the $13,000 WSOP Main Event prize package. This one will get you a seat at the Main Event in Vegas. Though check the Cake Poker details because if you win, you still are responsible for your own registration, travel and accommodations. But $13,000 should help with some of that. You’ll need to play in the Multi-table tournaments to win your way to the Main Event prize, but satellites still start at as little as $1.10. So, can you win your way from $1.10 to $13,000? And then possibly take the WSOP bracelet home?
