The 2017 WSOP is about to get a huge influx of 888poker players including Cristaborg, who took down Parker “TonkaaaaP” Talbot’s special WSOP Dream promo over the weekend.
Tonkaaaap’s WSOP Dream package was composed of eight $12 tournaments and a final freeroll with the seat on the line.
Over the course of the last month TonkaaaaP released passwords while streaming on Twitch so that players could get into the event for free.
In the end Cristaborg picked up a hefty WSOP package that includes five nights at Vdara, a $10k Main Event buy-in, $1,200 for travel and expenses and more.
There’s a good chance you’ll see quite a few more 888poker patches at the WSOP in the coming weeks as the many, many qualifiers begin to cash in their seats.

The eight-handed No-Limit Hold’em tournament offers four starting days with unlimited entries and payouts every flight.
The tournament will also offer an eye-catching $888,888 first-place prize.
888poker has been running numerous satellites for the value-packed tournament over the last month with winners picking up tidy $3,000 packages that include $1,200 for travel and expenses in addition to three nights accommodation at the home of the WSOP: The Rio All-Suites Hotel.
Even if you didn’t qualify for the Crazy 8s event on 888poker you still might want to check it out considering the bargain basement buy-in and the staggering first-place prize.
Of course a good run in the Crazy 8s event and you just might want to stick around for the $10,000 Main Event.
Last Chance to Qualify on 888
While the majority of 888poker WSOP qualifiers have come to an end it’s still possible to get a last-minute seat to the Main Event through the steps program on the site.
The regular steps program for WSOP or other major tournaments starts at just $.01 and cranks all the way up to $1,050 for a direct entry.
Keep your eyes peeled for $160 qualifiers which award seats to the direct $1,050 Main Event satellites. Anyone playing the Main Event under the 888poker banner also gets the added excitement of being on 888poker’s special 8-Team.
888poker Players Get Added Supersize ME Value
There are numerous ways to qualify for the WSOP Main Event but only 888poker players get the benefit of the Supersize ME promo.
Any player that qualifies for the 2017 WSOP Main Event through 888poker and actually manages to win the whole thing will get an extra payday through the site.
888poker will pitch in whatever it takes to bring the first-place prize to $10,000,000.
That means that if Qui Nguyen qualified through 888poker last year he would have picked up an extra $2m to bring his $8m prize to $10m straight.
