WSOP Overlay

, 2005-06-16, by TwoGun

Online poker rooms are scrambling to send as many players to the World Series of Poker as possible. Each poker room wants one of their players to win the WSOP, so the poker room receives the publicity associated with qualifying a WSOP winner.

Recently, Poker Room held eight single-table tournaments that each gave away a seat to the WSOP. The buy-in for each of these tournaments was $750+$0, and each tournament awarded a WSOP package worth $13,500. Since there were only ten players per tournament, each of these tournaments had a $6,000 overlay.

These tournaments were held between June 13 and 14. It is doubtful that Poker Room will be holding any more of these types of tournaments in the near future.
