New in Online Poker for September - Exciting Things

Visit Poker Stars and take part in the WCOOP (World Championships if Online Poker) this month. The event will be taking place from Sept. 4 to Sept. 18. Every day, one of 15 different tournaments will be taking place including no limit and pot limit Holdem games, Omaha (hi/lo) games and Seven Card Stud. Buy-ins range from $200 to $1000 with the main event, a No-Limit Texas Holdem tournament, having a buy-in of $2500. The total guarantee of prize money that will be rewarded at this years WCOOP is at least $8,000,000 (the highest amount in online poker history) with 2.5 million of it reserved for the main event.

Sundays have gotten even bigger at Ultimate bet. For the month of September, they have increased their Sundays guaranteed prize pool event from $100, 000 to $125, 000, and this is every Sunday! Throughout the week you can win a seat in this event for as low as $3 (less than a good cup of coffee) or simply join the event every Sunday at 10pm and buy your way in for $200 +15. The more players that join the event, the higher the prize pool grows.

If you’ve never played at Poker Room, then this month is the perfect time to join. For new players (who make their first deposit by Sept. 5) not only will you receive an initial match bonus of 20% up to $100, but you will also receive free tickets to a WPT qualifier and be automatically entered in to the their Shark Cage beginners tournament.

On Sept. 19 th the World Poker Tour is coming to Atlantic City with the Borgata Poker Open. You can win your way into this televised tournament by playing at Full Tilt Poker this month. Every Saturday (until the tournament begins) at 3pm sharp you can enter their $200 +$16 qualifier tournament and if you win, you are on your way to one of the most prestigious poker events out there. Winners receive a seat in the tournament, an array of Full Tilt gear and an additional $2000 in spending cash. If you don’t have the $200 buy-in amount, then you can also win your way into the Saturday games through satellite competitions going on during the week.


For the first three Wednesday’s in September go to Doyles Room and test your skills against a poker professional. At 9 pm enter into Doyles Room ”The Bounty Tournament” ($25 +$2.5 buyin) and play against WSOP champion Todd Brunson, Poker Legend Doyle Brunson or Poker Genius Mike Caro in a $1500 guaranteed tournament. And if you manage to knock out the pro, you win an automatic $250 Bounty Prize. This is your chance to show the pro’s what you’ve got.


Last month at Noble Poker, players had the opportunity to win a cool million dollars. Well since there has been no winner to date the contest will carry through September in hopes that someone will claim the prize. The contest is called the $1,000,000 Sit ‘N’ Go Challenge, where if a player wins 7 consecutive $10 + $2 buy in Sit ‘n’ Go Challenge tournaments (in any thirty day period) they will be rewarded 1 Million dollars in cash. The contest will also reward players who win 5 or 6 consecutive tournaments with 75k and 25k, respectively. And if this isn’t enough, a number of other prizes will be rewarded to players playing in these Sit ‘n’ Go $1,000,000 tournaments.
