Plenty of Extras Being Given Away at This Year's WSOP

[user68268] • Level 24

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.

With 62 WSOP gold bracelet events and three winners promised for the Main Event, this promotion includes $32,000 worth of value to those participating.

Crain Loses Two O8 Pots

• Level 24

Omaha Eight-or-Better

The board read {7-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{2-Clubs} and Eric Crain and Michael Malm were heads up in the hand. Malm came out with a bet and Crain called. The {7-Hearts} rivered and Malm bet once more. Crain called but mucked his hand after Malm fanned {A-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{6-Spades} for the scoop.

Two hands later, Steven Wolansky opened with a raise from the small blind. Crain three-bet from the big and Wolansky called. The flop came {J-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{9-Spades} and both player checked.

Fourth street saw a second jack fall with the {j-Hearts}. Wolansky fired a bet and Crain stuck around. The {A-Hearts} hit the river and Wolansky bet once more. Crain called.

Wolansky tabled {J-Spades}{j-Clubs}{a-Spades}{6-Spades} for quad jacks. Crain stared with his mouth agape at Wolansky's hand and then quickly mucked his own.

Big Blind Special

[user249920] • Level 24

No-Limit Hold'em

Action folded to Eric Crain in the small blind, who completed the bet. Greg Mueller checked his option.

The flop came {q-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}, and both players checked. An {8-Hearts} came on the turn, and Crain bet 10,000. Mueller made the call. The river brought another eight, this time the {8-Diamonds}, and Crain fired out 35,000. Mueller made it 125,000, and Crain called. Mueller tabled {8-Spades}{2-Clubs}, napkins that had become trips on the final two streets.
