PokerListings.com has discovered that Roberto plans to return to Las Vegas for the 2013 WSOP Main Event starting July 6.

50 Qualifiers to Join Luongo from PlayNow
Luongo started endorsing British Columbia Lottery Corporation’s online poker room PlayNow.com in September of 2011 and has since become the main face of the government-run Internet card room.
PlayNow.com, with their Network Partners in Manitoba and Quebec, plan to send close to 50 online qualifiers to the WSOP Main Event, and they'll all have a chance to meet and interact with Luongo.
PlayNow.com is the only gambling website approved to qualify players for the World Series of Poker and World Series of Poker Circuit in Canada.
