The long-awaited news about what's next for Dream Team Poker is finally here. Dream Team Poker will host a team-based tournament at the 2009 World Series of Poker. The event will take place July 12-13, 2009 at the Rio with a buy-in of $500 + $60 per player ($1,680 per team).

The first 300 teams that pre-register on www.dreamteampoker.com will receive personalized jerseys for the tournament.

"After seeing the terrific response to the recent Dream Team Poker tournaments in Las Vegas, we thought a team-based event would be a fun addition to the end of the WSOP," said Jeffrey Pollack, WSOP Commissioner. "The Dream Team Poker event is one of the many new elements added in 2009 that will help make this summer a memorable one for all WSOP players and fans."

Dream Team Poker has gained a lot of media attention in the past few months alone after hosting two successful events. Dream Team Poker brings credibility to the team-based structure, and is sure to make their third event their biggest success to date at the largest poker event of the year.
