Jungleman will keep you aware of its location via his Twitter account. When it will launch the appeal, the first person to join him in the location indicated, will be awarded a coupon. The person who has accumulated the most of these coupons will win headquarters. All participants must be 21 years of age and older and not have never participated in the Main Event (sorry PhilLeDingue). The seat shall be not be transferable. This is a great opportunity for all those who dream to participate in the most prestigious poker tournaments, but who are not necessarily the $ 10,000 to pay entrance fees.
