The buzz inside the walls of the Rio extends beyond just the tournaments on the 2013 World Series of Poker schedule. Online poker in Nevada is a very, very hot topic right now, and WSOP.com is making a lot of noise.

While the site has yet to launch, you can head to the Lambada Room of the Rio or look for one of the beautiful and friendly WSOP.com ladies walking the hallways to sign up for a free, personal WSOP.com online poker account. This is a great way to get a jump on the site's registration, and plenty of people have already taken this opportunity.

What's more is that the WSOP will be hosting daily raffles for everyone that has taken the time to register for WSOP.com at the Rio. What can you win? Plenty of fantastic prizes including 36 WSOP seats!

Players 21 years of age and older who sign up for a WSOP.com account will automatically be entered into the “36-Seat Giveaway” where a randomly-selected winner will win a seat into the next day’s first WSOP gold bracelet event. One of the events eligible in this promotion is the $111,111 One Drop High Roller No-Limit Hold’em tournament that is expected to feature a $10,000,000 prize pool and allow you to play poker with the biggest names in the game. In total, $182,333 in WSOP seats, including a seat to the WSOP Main Event, are being given away during this one-of-a-kind WSOP.com promotion.

In addition to the 36-Seat Giveaway, a “Hot Seat” promotion will allow any player who signs up for a WSOP.com online account and wears their WSOP.com patch on their chest at the table while playing an event to be randomly selected to receive 500 bonus dollars deposited directly into their WSOP.com online account once the site has received all regulatory approvals and launches.

Szecsi checked and Martin moved all in for 860,000 to put Szecsi in the tank for over two minutes before making the call.

Szecsi: {K-Clubs}{J-Clubs}
Martin: {A-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}

With Szecsi trailing and needing any club or jack to win, the river would strike the {10-Clubs} to send Martin to the rail in 4th place for $107,512.

Rory Mathews - 5th Place
Rory Mathews - 5th Place

Hand #85: Norbert Szecsi raised to 60,000 from the button, and Denis Gnidash made the call, as did Rory Mathews. The flop came {10-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}, and both callers checked to Szecsi, who bet 80,000. Only Mathews called. The turn was an {8-Clubs}, and Szecsi fired 185,000 this time. Mathews called without delay, and a {7-Hearts} arrived on the river. Szecsi tanked for a minute before announcing he was all in for 680,000. Mathews called, and he was shown {8-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} for a flush. Mathews is now crippled, having just 80,000 to his name.

Hand #86: Denis Gnidash limped the button, and Kirby Martin checked his option. They checked the pot down, and Gnidash took down the pot with ace-high.

Hand #87: Rory Mathews jammed for 85,000 from the button. Chris DeMaci called.

Mathews: {q-Spades}{5-Spades}
DeMaci: {k-Clubs}{9-Clubs}

The board ran out {a-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{6-Hearts}{10-Spades}, and Mathews was done in fifth.

Hand #84: From under the gun Denis Gnidash made it 60,000 only to have Bryce Landier three-bet to 215,000 from the small blind. The action returned to Gnidash and he made the call as the dealer dropped a {2-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{J-Diamonds} flop.

Landier led out for 275,000 and Gnidash made the call as the {7-Hearts} landed on the turn. Landier shoved all in for 475,000 and Gnidash instantly made the call.

Lander: {K-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}
Gnidash: {A-Clubs}{A-Hearts}

In yet another cooler hand, Lander would need to spike a two-outer, but when the {2-Clubs} landed on the river, he was out the door in 6th place for a $58,126 payday.

Szecsi Doubles Through Martin

[user249920] • Level 25: 15,000-30,000, 5,000 ante

Hand #79: Rory Mathews made it 60,000 under the gun, and Denis Gnidash called the minraise from the big blind. Both players checked the {9-Spades}{3-Hearts}{a-Spades} flop. The {5-Hearts} turned, and Gnidash check-called to a 55,000 bet.

Hand #80: Norbert Szecsi went all in, and nobody called.

Hand #81: Chris DeMaci raised to 60,000, he collected the pot.

Hand #82: Gnidash raised to 60,000. That took the pot down.

Hand #83: Szecsi moved all in from under the gun for 495,000. Kirby Martin jammed behind him on the button for 1,500,000, and DeMaci went into the tank. Finally, after burying his head in his hands and appearing anguished, he let his hand go.

Szecsi: {9-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}
Martin: {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}

Szecsi's rail section hollered for a nine in their native language, and a nine they got, as the flop came {9-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{5-Hearts}. A {3-Clubs} turn made for a sweat, as Martin added four more outs to his hand. The river was the {9-Spades} though, and it was Szecsi whose hand improved.

DeMaci: From Chip Suicide to Title Contention

[user249920] • Level 25: 15,000-30,000, 5,000 ante
Chris DeMaci expected to be out on Day 1.
Chris DeMaci expected to be out on Day 1.

Chris DeMaci, currently sitting in last place of the six remaining players, has certainly come much further in this tournament than he expected. He tried busting out of the tournament on this amusing hand from Day 1, but fate kept him in the tournament. He's certainly capitalized on the opportunity.
