The main goal for most tournament players is winning a gold bracelet at the World Series of Poker. It’s the most prestigious award a poker player can achieve.
There is one $500 event (open to casino employees), two $1,000 buy-ins (the Women’s event and the Senior’s event), and the other 32 (yes, 32) events range from $1,500 to $10,000.
With buy-ins this steep it’s not easy for the average tournament player to compete without a huge bankroll or a financial backer. But it could be possible with a plan.
Let’s say you have a $3,000 bankroll and you are not fortunate enough to have a backer but you want to compete in the most famous poker tournament on the planet.
With a good plan you not only could participant but you might even play for virtually nothing. How, you ask?
Satellites, that’s how. One-table satellites are a fraction of the buy-in and are an excellent way of parlaying a couple of hundred dollars into possibly more than $100,000 or maybe even $1.5 million.
A bankroll of $3,000 is barely enough to buy into one or two events but it is certainly enough to play several satellites. One satellite win could make all the difference in the world.
There are actually players who specialize in satellite play. They only play satellites with no intent of playing in any of the events. They find tournament play too long and can’t concentrate for that length of time but like the idea of tournament play so satellites are a perfect solution. They get the gratification of tournament competition on a much smaller scale.
If you’re dream is to play the $10,000 Situs Judi Online24Jam Terpercaya 2021 event, super satellites are you’re best bet. Super satellites are multi-table satellites with unlimited rebuys during the first hour of play. The buy-in at the WSOP is $220 and you receive $200 in tournament chips. The rebuys are $200 and get you another $200 in chips.
A good plan for playing super satellites is not to rebuy. Why put all your eggs in one basket? Instead of rebuying two or three times, save that rebuy money and play two or three more supers on one bullet.
I know it can be done, I’ve parlayed $220 twice, once in 1998 and again in 2000 for a $10,000 seat.
So my advice to those of you on a limited bankroll would be to play as many one-table satellites and super satellites as possible. If you believe you’re good enough to win an event at the World Series then you should have no problem winning a satellite to the event of your choice.
Be sure to take advantage of all the opportunities you can to win those seats.
Stop by the poker room at Palace Station while you in Las Vegas, they’ll be running various satellites and super satellites all throughout the WSOP.
Good luck and I hope to see you at the final table.
