WSOP Main Event Seat Up For Grabs

BLUFF is proud to be backing one of the most exciting new folds the the 2013 WSOP; the addition of the Daily Deepstack Player of the Series title. BLUFF’s industry leading Player of the Year formula will track the best overall players in the WSOP Daily Deepstack events. The winner of the new title wins a seat to the 2013 WSOP Main Event.

The points race begins on the first day of the WSOP, Wednesday, May 29, and runs through Sunday, June 30. The formula is similar to BLUFF’s 2013 Player of the Race, but instead of counting points for a player’s top ten finishes the Deepstacks race counts a player’s top eight finishes in Daily Deepstack events. The rankings will update daily at BLUFF.com with weekly news stories highlighting the race for Las Vegas’ newest title.

The Daily Deepstack events have grown in popularity at an astonishing rate since they were introduced in 2011. The tournaments routinely attracted fields of a few thousand players on the weekends with prize pools reaching well over six figures. The one day events require a lot of patience and even more endurance, the larger fields typically played for 14 hours.

Each day the Rio hosts three Daily Deepstacks tournaments; the first at 2 pm with a $235 entry fee, the second at 6 pm for $185 and the late night event at 10 pm for $135. Typically, the 2 pm event will have the largest fields with attendance nearing 1,000 players. Winners have walked away with and average of $35,000-$40,000 on the big weekends.
