Poker players who venture into the world of live tournament poker usually start with small tournaments at local casinos and slowly work their way toward $10,000 buy-in events or larger, though it usually takes years or the win of a satellite tournament to be afforded the opportunity to play at that level. But Full Tilt Poker is looking to give more players the chance to sit with the best at none other than a World Poker Tour main event. And those chances are available from now through the end of February 2010.
It is the dream of most poker tournament players to win a World Poker Tour event, but they have to earn their seats before that entry can have the chance to become a victory. Full Tilt Poker knows this and wants every player - with every bankroll and level of experience - to have that opportunity. Thus, the site started running qualifiers to award players those WPT seats along with money for travel and expenses, all wrapped up in an attractive prize package worth $12,000. And there will be a minimum of 57 packages awarded before the promotion ends.
Seats available include the immensely popular LA Poker Classic in Los Angeles that typically features a prize pool of over $6 million and the Bay 101 Shooting Star Championship that is always well-attended and awards $5,000 bounties for knocking out famous pro players in addition to a $1 million first place prize.
Registering for the qualifiers is easy, as they occur each week through the end of February. Each Sunday at 16:30 ET, there is a $500 + $35 qualifier that will award two prize packages, every Tuesday at 21:00 ET will find a $300 + $22 qualifier to give away one package, and every Thursday at 21:00 ET presents a $1,000 + $60 satellite that will end with two package winners.
Wait, you say you can’t afford the price of those qualifiers? Not many people can. So, Full Tilt offers satellites running at various times each day that allow players to qualify for those satellites for as little as $.50 or 50 Full Tilt Points. Now that is a bargain! Just imagine being that WPT winner who tells his or her story about turning $.50 into $1 million or more…
