Live Satellites at the Rio can send you to the 2013 WSOP

World Series of Poker
Share this

The 2013 World Series of Poker may be five weeks away but kickoff is speeding at us faster than some of us can build a bankroll. The world's biggest poker festival fuels the fire — the fire to play, the fire to win, and the fire to own gold. And even without a big bankroll, every poker player and fan can get in the game through live satellites at the Rio.

The satellites run daily and with 62 WSOP gold bracelet events to choose from, you can win your seat in one for a price that suits what you want to spend. The first day of the WSOP is May 29th, 2013, and the satellites will have open seats all the way through July 8th. When you hit the Rio, head for the Paviilion Ballroom and get your seat.

Satellite entries start as low as $75 — pick your spots and don't forget that deals are made in satellites too. You may want to opt for an opportunity to take cash from the deal-maker and enter another satellite later. You also have choices in satellite formats: mega satellites, single-table satellites, and turbo satellites.

The Turbo mega satellites put cards in the air on May 30th at 9 a.m. PDT time and run every day; The Turbo mega is No Limit Hold'em with a $75 entry fee.

Mega satellites start on May 29th and run through July 4th. A $330 buy-in gets you a seat in the 4 p.m. session and a $550 buy-in puts you in the 8 p.m. session. Look for most of the 8 p.m. satellites to run in full-ring No Limit Hold'em format but there will be some that will test your poker skills, like the following:

DateFormat
June 4Seven-Card Stud Hi-Low Split
June 6Heads-Up No-Limit Hold’em
June 8Pot-Limit Hold’em
June 12Omaha Hi-Low Split
June 14H.O.R.S.E.
June 17Six-Handed No-Limit Hold'em
June 19Limit Hold'em
June 21Six-Handed Pot-Limit Omaha
June 222-7 Draw Lowball (No-Limit)
June 27Six-Handed No-Limit Hold’em
July 4Pot-Limit Omaha

Two satellites will be held for the $111,111 One Drop High Roller event that begins on June 26th. The satellites start on June 24th and 25th and carry a price tag of $5,200 — that could be the biggest parlay of the universe considering the six-figure buy-in. Consider that you could win a buy-in to this satellite from a smaller buy-in satellite (like an online poker steps tournament). Both satellites will be played as No Limit Hold'em.

From June 26th through 29th each of those days will feature four $2,250 satellites, beginning at 7 p.m., that could send you into a $50,000 Poker Players Championship seat that starts on June 30th.

The WSOP Main Event satellites could change your whole life if you win the big event and the coveted champion's gold bracelet. Running from July 4th through July 8th, the following satellites will be the magic carpet ride to fame and fortune:
