25 Seat Main Event Scramble Success; “Kingpoker1″ Wins 50k Guarantee

Last Sunday was a huge day for online poker in Nevada. WSOP.com held a tournament that guaranteed 25 seats to the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event, and it did not disappoint. The tournament brought in over 1,200 registrants, many new to the site. And was only $3,000 shy of making the $250,000 guarantee. The tournament provided a chance for players to satellite into a $10,000 event, for a mere $215. Proving that online poker is still alive and well in the state.

In other news, PartyPoker ran it’s its usual $50,000 Guarantee which was won by “Kingpoker1″ for a substantial $10,500. And “SHIPPPITT” made his 85th final table. Bringing his total online winnings to $23,601.15, and overall ROI (return on investment) to an impressive 120.98%.
