Zoom Over to Absolute Poker for the Satellite Sprints Event

Share this
Satellites are everywhere; no we aren’t talking about those marvels of technology orbiting the globe in space, we mean online Poker Satellites. There as many different Poker Satellites as there are stars in the sky and if you like playing them, you will love the new Satellite Sprints promotion at Absolute Poker!

There is no doubt that Satellites revolutionized tournament poker by giving every online poker player, no matter what their budget – a shot to get a seat in a major tournament event.  By playing in Satellites, the old days of coughing up the whole big buy-in for an event, prospective players can now play a satellite for a fraction of the cost and win their seat cheap. Now all of those tournaments that had buy-ins out of bounds for the average player’s wallet are but a Satellite win away.

Just like any other form of online poker, you can get better at winning satellites and naturally, the more you play, the better you get, and the more you win. That is why Absolute Poker is giving their players even more incentive to play in their many satellites to their biggest events - the Sunday $200K GTD and the Wednesday Sniper $80K GTD. Win a Satellite to either of those big events on the day they are held and you will guarantee your tournament seat but if you win multiple satellites on that day, Absolute Poker will credit your account with $215 in Tournament Dollars (T$) for every satellite you win! Then you can use those valuable T$ to buy-in to any tournament at Absolute Poker – even Satellites to big land based events like the World Series of Poker! But wait – that’s not all; the five players who win the most satellites on the day of the event will each win an additional $215 in T$ to use as buy-ins to even more and bigger tournaments!

There are a few things to remember about Absolute Poker’s Satellite Sprint promotion: Only the satellites on the day of the tournament count towards this promotion. The $200K GTD promotion runs from midnight to 16:00 ET on the day of the tournament and the Sniper $80K GTD promotion runs from midnight through 21:00 ET on the day of the tournament. Satellites that are exempt from the promotion are Sit n Gos, private MTT's, affiliate satellites, password protected events, VIP and AbsolutePoints Satellites. And, all prizes will be paid in Tournament Dollars with no exceptions.
