Betfair adds seven WSOP packages

The Prize Money

Two weeks of poker action to get into Betfair Poker's Super Sunday Qualifier for the World Series of Poker begins today.

The promotion at Betfair Poker launched today and offers two weeks of action for poker players to earn their way into the Super Sunday Qualifier. The Super Sunday Qualifier will award six World Series of Poker packages worth $16,000.

The winner of the Super Sunday event will walk away with a $40,000 package that includes one of the $16,000 WSOP packages and a $24,000 WSOP Europe package.


The Super Sunday will take place June 15 at 6 p.m. BST and has a $525+$50 buy-in. However, starting today there are several ways players can earn their way into the Super Sunday rather than shelling out the direct buy-in.

Points mean seats

The first way Betfair Poker is offering for players to get into the Super Sunday is with points. Players who can earn 35,000 Betfair points playing poker during the next 14 days will be awarded a $550 seat in the Sunday Qualifier.

The points must be earned between June 1 and June 13.

Take Annette's seat

Annette Obrestad is one of Betfair Poker's sponsored pros, but at 19 she's too young to participate in the WSOP. That means players at Betfair Poker have the opportunity to win her seat to go in her place.

Between June 2-11, Obrestad will play in 30 tournaments at Betfair Poker. The players that knock her out of the tournaments will win a seat in a final on Saturday June 14.

All the players who knocked her out of the designated tournaments will play each other to earn a $16,000 prize package. The winner gets the prize package and players who place second through 11th will earn a seat in the Super Sunday Qualifier for another chance to win a seat.

The Bracelet Chase

Starting today, three Bracelet Chase tournaments will be announced in the lobby between 6 p.m. and 12 p.m. BST that will have a 10¢ buy-in and rebuys. The top three players in each daily tournament will go through to a $6,600 final on June 14.

The June 14 final will award 12 players a seat in the Super Sunday.
