Now that the World Series of Poker qualifying season has passed, Thunder Valley Casino Resort is gearing up for the WSOP Main Event held at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
This year Thunder Valley awarded five Northern California players free entry into the $10,000 buy-in WSOP Main Event in Las Vegas along with $2,000 spending money for the trip. The five WSOP satellite winners are Mario McClure, Mike Luong, Devon Wedum, Daniel Medina and Andy Ho.
“Congratulations to the five players that have successfully played their way into the WSOP Main Event through our satellites,” said Thunder Valley Casino Resort Poker Director Ben Erwin. “We wish them the best in Las Vegas as they work through the massive field and play in the most prestigious poker event in the world.”
Thunder Valley will be following its players to Las Vegas for the event and be posting updates on Twitter @tvpoker and the Poker Room Blog at http://poker room.thundervalleyresort.com.
