PokerStars has given away... 777 seats to the WSOP... according to the last time I checked. Heck, they might have even given away one more since I started writing this post.
PokerStars is your short cut to the Main Event. The Main Event doesn't kick off until July, so you have plenty of chance to win your seat through various means... Cash satellites, FPP satellites, and Steps satellites. For a complete list of upcoming WSOP satellites, simply look in the lobby under the Events & WSOP tab.
Here's a description of the Main Event prize packagaes...
PokerStars 2009 Main Event Package...Yeah, it's true. PokerStars will deposit 100,000 VPPs into your account which automatically qualifies you for SuperNova status.
** $10,000 Main Event buy-in
** 1,000 for travel and expenses
** 8 nights hotel accommodation at the Palms (plus extra nights after July 10 if you are still alive)
** PokerStars player bag
** Shuttle Bus to and from the Rio
** VIP Invitation (+1) to July 9 PokerStars Player Party

If you don't have a PokerStars account and want to play in WSOP satellites, you can download the software below...
Good luck to everyone. Hope to see you in Las Vegas.
