WSOP Season 13 promises to be record-breaking event

World Series Of Poker Season 13 has been bigger than ever with 47 domestic tour stops, and 14 international events. With the Main Event winners and Casino Champions guaranteed a free seat, there will be a minimum of 122 automatic qualifiers competing in the event, with 28 of them hailing from overseas.

As for those who’ve ground their way into the Global Poker Index, then you can also compete, but will have to stump up the $10,000 buy-in.

And players who won a gold ring in any of the side events are also free to buy-in directly for $10,000. The WSOP has confirmed that all entry fees will be rake-free.

The Global Casino Championship will be televised, and there will be a gold bracelet up for grabs.
