You may not know the name Frank Op de Woerd when you first see it, but you probably know who I'm talking about when I say "Webjoker". Frank has been a live reporter at the WSOP for years now, and just this year starting working for the Pokernews.com site. He is originally from the Netherlands, where he is one of the most highly respected and admired members of the poker media world. There he runs a very popular poker forum that has many loyal followers. How loyal are they? Well, they put up his buy-in for this event.
Without him knowing, the members decided to pool their money together, and give him an entry to a $1,000 buy-in event. Well the donations were so popular that they easily raised enough money to put him in a $1,500 event, which is how he got his seat in this tournament today. His followers will be happy to know that Frank is off to a fantastic start today, as he is already up to over 14,000 so far! We will be sure to keep tabs on his progress as the day moves forward.
