    Let’s send 5 SBR Pros to the WSOP Millionaire Maker Event!

    The NFL pick 6 contest awarded $50,000 in prizes and the next poker promotion gets a mere $1,500 for a 4 month commitment?


    Why is it that SBR doesn’t want to put a serious poker promotion out there and back it up with a real reward for the time we put into it?


    I like the idea of a $1,500 million maker entry promotion, hell, who wouldn’t love the chance to play for a million dollars. But why does it have to be only one top prize?


    SBR could easily send 5 guys to Vegas for this at $7,500 and kick in $500 each toward the hotel and we’re talking a total of 10 grand here. Imagine sending a team of 5 SBR Pros all decked out in SBR gear, you can’t buy better SBR site advertising at the WSOP like that! Plus the fact that we’ve now got a team of 5 with a shot at a million dollars!


    The hell with awarding points at the final table for the this. Give the final 5 a $1,500 entry, the other 5 get a piece of the action if any player finishes in the money.


    Also, the 6 thru 10 finishers would automatically become alternates should one or more of the top 5 not make the commitment to go. The winners would still have to cover their own airfare and miscellaneous expenses, so you never know, someone may bail or have something come up last minute.


    So come on SBR make this happen. Stop being so fuk’in cheap with the poker promotions and make it worth it for the dedication serious SBR poker pros would put into it.


    As I stated earlier, 10k to send 5 SBR pros is a drop in the bucket compared to the $50 thousand awarded during pick 6 football promotion. How many new pros did we gain during that verses the coverage we’d get at the WSOP?


    Let’s put SBR poker back on map and generate renewed energy into making poker here once again exciting to play!


    Cheers!

    Easy to come up with this Brilliant Idea, but where am I supposed to come up with that kind of funding. I have a budget!

    All you gotta do Sam, is slap SBR logos all over us, offer our multiple sportsbooks, ie... 5Dimes, BetDSI, Heritage, youwager, etc... the opportunity to gain sponsorship advertising in conjunction with SBR for the event. Promote the tourney on You Tube, Twitch and ustream. Offer limited edition TEAM SBR WSOP tee shirts. Get the social media thing go’in with Twitter and Facebook.

    Imagine the new SBR Pro sign ups with a Twitter and Facebook post like this:

    “Hey poker players! Would you like an opportunity to play at the WSOP and become a Millionaire? SBRodds.com is giving away 5 entries into the Millionaire Maker Event! Come join the best betting odds and information site on the World Wide Web - SBRODDS.com”

    And of course provide links to the promotion, where to sign up, SBR Pro benefits, etc...
    It’s all about the marketing, you got this Sam!

    You have BobbyWaves 16k points ($1250 in bitcoin) that’s not being used because of banning. I’m sure the other scam artist had some as well. Thinking that’s a good start to your money tree

    Actually not a bad idea you guys do all these big payouts on other things get rid of one would be great advertising that pormo can actually bring you to the next level. A lot of work but would be worth it for sbr future

    That would be even worse. It would cost more to get there than the free tournament seat would be worth.

    I second the idea. SBR only to contribute. 40% of some of the many satellites .. I am sure the regulars can make it . SBR In the past spend way too much sending inadequate players . spending the found on a pull of good prooven players that can overcome in good numbers the satellite .A shared cost is just fair for the company an for the players, both have something to make and loose.sin

    spectacular idea, even just a single guy making the final table that wears an SBR hat is arguably worth as much as an ad during the super bowl and more effective too (95% of people watching poker on TV or care about the WSOP at all are also going to be gambling on sports)

    I think the dates are Jun 23-28th that Opti is interested in. I would probably need to leave the 27th though to get back to work.
