Do it in person, much safer option

Yes you can by bank wire or a bank draft, but they must recieve it 2 weeks before the start of the Tourney.

Go to their web site and get the swift code and all that stuff needed for a bank wire if so inclined but most everyone brings CASH or a cert. BANK DRAFT.

It sounds like thats what you want to do anyway so good luck, i might see you there.

No I havent, but know people who have.

You can buy in at the Casino where the Wsop is held.

Thats what their WSOP Web Site says as of a few months ago, but that if for anything other than cash in person.

That can be done anytime.

I have not played, but I did deal the WSOP. You can just go to the Rio and buy in for whatever you want, don't have to online.

I played last year, I wired my cash it was no issue at all. This year I will just buyin at the wsop window, it is pretty straight forward, if you can't figure it out I hope to see you at my table.  Gl kid it's a blast, well worth the buyin especially if you cash.  I ran decent in my only wsop tourney,  170th out of 4500. Only 18 days till event 2

I dealt the 2010 WSOP. My friend had dealt prior years and they definitely used to do much better than they do now. I had just graduated college so it was something fun to do and make a few bucks.

I played 3 years ago in event #4.  BELIEVE me you'd rather wire them the money than stand in the RIDICULOUSLY long lines for ppl trying to pay onsite.  Then line for players paid in advance was a mere 15 minute wait.  All you'll have to do if you're pre-reg'd is show them your ID and get your seat card.  If you wait to pay there, then line was a 2 hour wait to get in.  Take or leave my advice, but I strongly suggest pre paying if possible.
