WSOP Satellite Event Wheeling Island Casino Poker Room

Wheeling Island will feature a WSOP satellite event on Saturday January 29th at 1pm in the showroom. Wheeling Island Casino and Racetrack is a WSOP satellite location.

This no limit holdem poker tournament event will give away one $10,000 seat + $6000 in Cash to the winner with expected cash prizes to the final table (based on number of entrants). The buy in is $130 with an optional rebuy of $70. Your initial buy in will get you 10K in chips plus a dealer add on of 1500 (for $5). The rebuy of 10K in chips can be added at anytime your intial chips are at or less than the original starting stack.

Several local pros from the tri-state area are expected to play as well as Darvin Moon, the 2009 Runner up in the WSOP (World Series of Poker) main event. Darvin won more than $5 million dollars for his $130 satellite seat.

The Main event of the WSOP will be held on July 7th at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

Jody, floor supervisor at Wheeling Island casino, will floor the poker tournament on Saturday afternoon. The staff is able to accommodate up to 220 players at this event.

Registration is open now until the first level of the tournament, however early registration is encouraged to ensure you do not get locked out. (I already bought my seat!)

Get in there and good luck, hope to see you all Saturday!
