These are the players that I could find from the PSO who are participating in this Sunday's ESPN WSOP Main Event Final at 8PM EST. The winner of this event gets an entry into the WSOP Main event, plus flight and hotel. Right now there are 727 entrants and qualifying has ended. However, while looking through the entrants for names from the PSO, I noticed, and have reported, a few suspicious names for multi-accounting, so we'll see if the number drops a few.
In case you didn't know, the ESPN club is tied to pokerstars and most of us probably play on pokerstars' site and skins after we register for an event. (It's just cleaner, and you have some stuff on ps, like the replay button and your personal notes, that you don't get on the espn site.)

If I've missed anyone, and you wish to let us know you're playing, please post.

The absolute best of luck to everyone playing!!!

Thanks JW for making me take notice of this and bring it to the forum.

It would be a sweeeeet moment for the PSO should one of these take it down.

Sorry..don't know why it's unacceptable to provide the link to a pokerstars site.

Wasn't my first...lest we forget the late great Puke Chick branding.

Probably won't be my last.

How is it possible to win that kind of prize if you are an American player? Would love an explanation to that.

Actually Johnny, all the players registered for this are from the US. My guess is that the ESPN club poker is based in the US....but I'm not sure. When I can get some more info, I'll provide it.
I'm looking for an appropriate link to it, but if you google espn poker club, you should get to it.
I don't know how, but it's tied to pokerstars, it runs freerolls, and they have clubs. (It resembles Pokerstars.net in their lobby.)
Like I said, you can even run your games through PS, once you're registered.
Sorry to have put up a bad link...when I get the info, I'll provide it, but if you see Billy or Mary, they can get you the info in vent.

Sorry for any confusion.....

NONE THE LESS..please encourage the PSO players in this event.
What a prize!

I've been looking for a good link for it since that Fri too for a couple of people. I think they took it down.

I was playing the ESPN stuff way before I started on Stars (it's where I got my start online). The old servers were, I'm assuming, in CT... just like their other games ones.

The one now (and for the last year or so) is run by pokerstars.net

Let me know JW and thanks..like I said, could probably be googled. That's where I got the link that I shouldn't have.
I just didn't save the one I used originally, but if Mary did, I'll check if it's ok, then post it.

Here's a kinda related question, from a non-American. Does anyone know if/when Stars would be running satellites for WSOP events? I think that just about all of the smaller sites have already started.

From AJ Andrew J Feldman ESPN poker club Director Via Espn Poker's Message board today :

Hey everyone,

Just copying and pasting what I am allowed to say regarding the situation...unfortunately, for now, we've reached the end of the ESPN PC with a shut-down date in the very near future:
"Due to the recent federal actions impacting the U.S. online poker
industry, ESPN has decided to suspend all

activities on the ESPN Poker Club currently powered by

PokerStars.net. As a result, the Main Event Final Tournament
that was set to take place on May 15th has been cancelled.



If you have any additional questions, please contact us at

support@espncustomercare.com.
Thank you for playing at ESPN Poker Club. We wish you all the

best and look forward to communicating to you any future news

regarding the ESPN Poker Club.
Sincerely, The ESPN Poker Team"



I've enjoyed working and playing along side all of you for the last six years and will continue to work towards building a new ESPN Poker Club destination in the near future.

-AJ

ESPN Poker is closing up Shop .

Hugs ,

Mary

AJ's always been a class act to me. Over the years in it, I've won a few minor prizes in the tournies and he's always been really good with personally getting them out to me. Hands-on director that made sure things got taken care of for all the players involved..... and a really good player too! I'm sure they'll end up somewhere, hopefully back with pokerstars, when we're all allowed back in.
