A Hundred for a Million

by , May 22, 2011 | 6:30 pm

I have a feeling the inaugural WSOP million-dollar freeroll might feature some of the best poker we’ll see throughout the WSOP. The unofficial kick-off for the 2011 WSOP activities — and perhaps opening testament to the dramatically reduced relevance of typical patch players this year — gets underway this Friday.

Below is the official list of who gets to play — final save for point and money totals on the nine players who locked up seats yesterday and played (or are still playing) the Southern regional championship at Harrah’s New Orleans today.

NOTABLE:

  • 98/100 qualifiers are men; the two women are both from Texas.
  • 99/100 qualifiers are American; the other is from Canada.
  • Plenty of interesting names qualified for 1 of 100 seats over the course of the ever-expansive WSOP-circuit 2010/11 season. And I’m sure some of the best stories come from winners we’ve never heard of … but regardless, several well-known players and a few special-to-Pokerati players will be fighting for 10 payouts ranging from $27,500 to $300,000, including …

    La Sengphet (one of only two women who qualified)
    David Clark
    Josh Evans
    Charles “Woody” Moore
    Dwight Pilgrim
    Allie Prescott
    Allen Kessler
    Tim West
    Bernard Lee
    Ali Eslami
    Traci Brown (the other female qualifier, also from Texas)
    Brandon Adams
    Shannon Shorr
    Andy Frankenberger
