Experienced poker players can appreciate the value of a safe bet, which is what makes Hollywood Poker's offer of World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event insurance so appealing. The poker room's "bubble" insurance ensures that Hollywood Poker players competing in the WSOP Main Event can expect to receive at least the amount paid to the last paid position if they finish within five places of that spot.
According to the site, more than 3,000 players have already signed-up for the insurance.
Players are eligible for the insurance if they've won their way into the WSOP via one of Hollywood Poker's satellites, or if they're registered players who are entering the WSOP using their own bankroll.
Players can sign-up for Hollywood Poker's WSOP insurance by clicking the "Bubble Insurance" button on the site's "My Account" page. Once a player is signed-up, they must collect 1,500 Poker Points before July 21, 2006, for the insurance to take effect.
People who are going to the WSOP but aren't registered on Hollywood Poker are also eligible for the offer. They just need to register on the site, sign-up for the insurance, and earn 1,500 Poker Points by July 21, 2006.
