The World Series of Poker is the biggest live poker event in the world, and draws hundreds of thousands of poker enthusiasts from across the world. For those who have always wanted to be a part of this poker event, but have not been able to do so because of the high buy-ins, Party Poker is running a special promotion. Starting on February 25, 2013, the online poker room is hosting a special promotion named WSOP 2013, and is giving away WSOP Main Event Packages and Las Vegas WSOP Experience Packages to a skilled few.
That is right! If you are good at poker and have it in you to beat the champions of poker at the WSOP, this is your chance to prove it. The promotion ends on June 16, 2013, at 23:59 EST.
Qualifiers for the Main Event Package
If you are a member of Party Poker, you have a chance to win one of the many WSOP Main Event packages that the online poker room is giving away through its qualifiers. The Main Event of the World Series has a buy-in of $10,000, and the Party Poker WSOP Qualifiers offer you a chance to enter the event by spending no money at all. The qualifier structure for the $14,000 Main Event package is mentioned below.
The first level of the qualifier is a WSOP freeroll that takes place every day. To participate in it, you need to be a member of the poker room and should have earned a certain number of Party Poker Points. The top 25 players of this Freeroll will move to the next level, which is the WSOP Sub Qualifier Speed Rebuy. The sub qualifier events take place at different levels and can have a buy-in of $2, $4 or $9.
In the daily sub-qualifiers, one player for every $80 in the prize pool will move into the next round, the WSOP Satellite Qualifier, which takes place twice every day. This has a buy-in of $75 and an entry fee of $5. Members can directly buy-in to these qualifiers, or start with the freeroll and move each level up.
One out of every 10 players in the WSOP Satellite Qualifier will move to the WSOP Satellite, which guarantees one Main Event package to the winner. The Satellite event takes place at 2:50 pm ET on all Sundays. The package includes $10,000 buy-in to the event, spending money of $2,000 and accommodation for 10 days in a hotel in Las Vegas.
Qualifiers for the Experience Package
Party Poker members can also use their skills to win the WSOP Experience packages that the online poker room is offering through its qualifiers. The WSOP Las Vegas Experience package is worth $5,500 and includes $2,500 for a WSOP side event buy-in (details will be provided later), cash of $1,650 for spending and 7 nights’ accommodation at a Las Vegas hotel.
You can directly buy-in to the Las Vegas Experience Satellite for an amount of $300, or you could start from the freeroll and move up each level of the qualifier structure to win a free seat in the satellite. Players can begin at the daily freerolls and move on to the sub-qualifier satellites for Las Vegas Experience packages, which have a buy-in of $3 and $1. One player for every $33 in these sub-qualifiers moves into the next level, the Satellite Qualifier, which has a buy-in of $33. For every $300 in the prize pool of the Satellite Qualifier, one participant will move into the Las Vegas Experience Satellite. The satellite talks place every Sunday at 3:45 pm ET and guarantees one package worth $5,500.
