I've never played poker. Can I enter?
Of course. It’s time to learn. Google the Chris Moneymaker story. He was not a professional player but was an avid learner who loved poker. He played home games with friends as well as online tournaments. He qualified for the WSOP 2003 Main Event in a satellite online and the rest is history. So, anybody can learn, and be successful. And most importantly have fun!

How do I claim my prize(s) if I place in an event?
Before any prizes are awarded for any of our winners, they will be required to send proof of current college enrollment. We will provide you with a list of the information we need, and we will follow up with your institution.
Once you have been verified, we will send your prize after consulting with you the best way to send it by USPS, UPS, or FedEx. Please allow up to 30 days to verify student enrollment as well as to post the prizes to the address of your choice.
Can I enter an Event more than once?
This is a free event and not a rebuy tournament. You may only enter once. If for some reason we discover that you have entered twice under a different alias, you will be banned from all WCP events and not allowed to compete in the future. Be aware. PokerStars software and security can trace users from their unique IP addresses.
Please be fair and courteous to your fellow competitors.
