Make sure to check your email for an introductory 100% up to $500 reload offer, too.

PHASE 2: SWEEPSTAKES DRAWING

Didn’t win a seat? Not a problem. All those APPs you earn will get you drawing entries for the Sweepstakes. Here’s how it works:

  • For every 10 APPs you earn during your team’s leaderboard rotation in Phase 1, you earn 1 entry for the upcoming drawing.
  • For every 10 APPs you earn when it is not your team’s leaderboard rotation in Phase 1, you earn 2 entries for the upcoming drawing.
  • After the drawing has been made, your entries reset, so make sure you keep playing.

Drawings will be held March 13, April 10 and April 17.

PHASE 3: THE ACADEMY + WINNER'S PACKAGE CHALLENGE

The nine winning players will participate in the Poker Training Academy, designed specifically for WSOP.com players, on April 22.

Players will experience:

  • Personalized fundamental strategy building from the ground up.
  • Access to some of the top poker pros in both the online and live poker communities, including one-on-one and group instruction.
  • Recorded footage of the academy's game play, including hole cards and individualized commentary from the coaches.

Once the academy is over, the nine players will put those lessons to work and compete in a nine-week leaderboard challenge. Each player will receive 20% rake back for the nine week duration, and the top player will win an exclusive winner's package, which includes:

  • Entry to Event #71: $1,000 Online Bracelet at the 2017 World Series of Poker
  • Official WSOP.com Swag
