Is it too early to start thinking about the 2007 WSOP? We don't think so. Now with the US online players out of the way, we are convinced a non-US player will win this year's WSOP, and we want to make sure he is a SunPoker player.
How do I win a package?
So the top 100 MPP (My Poker Points) earners in SunPoker between 1 December, 2006 and 31 May, 2007 will be sent to the 2007 WSOP, plus kicking in some SICK extras you'll see below. MPPs are Sun Poker's way to reward its loyal poker clients. Points are earned by playing at a regular cash game or ring game tables. Players are awarded MPPs along the following schedule:
Rake from 0 to .24 = 0 MPP
Rake from .25 to 0.99 = .25 MPP
Rake from $1 to $3 = 1 MPP
Tournament Fee's $/£/€ 1 = 3 MPPs.
