The annual WSOP is yet to come and will once again capture everyone’s imagination.
Unlike many other professional sports, you don’t have to be a poker professional or even a very good player to score. 2005 and 2006 WSOP winners Joe Hachem and Jaime Gold also showed that little-known poker players can win the WSOP titles as well.
Here are the ways to get into the World Series of Poker
1. Direct purchase
For $ 10,000, you can buy your WSOP seat. This is how the 2005 WSOP winner Joseph Hashem participated in the event.
Most reasonable people will pay that amount of money, of course, and in fact, they will not take into account that there are cheaper alternatives to entry.
2. Online qualification
Many online poker rooms offer quaifiers live online at WSOP with subscription fees ranging from $ 100 to $ 1000. Depending on the number of players entering, a certain number of seats will be awarded to the WSOP. As such, the higher the admission price to these Live Online Qualifiers, the fewer players you will have to conquer to reach WSOP.
Jaime Gold entered the WSOP by this route.
3. Online qualifications of various steps
If the $ 100 is a little too expensive for you, then you have the option to enter WSOP ‘pre-satellites’ that provide entry to WSOP Live Satellites as prizes. They usually range from $ 1 to $ 40. Again, the higher the price, the higher your chances of winning a seat at the WSOP.
2003 WSOP champion, Chris Moneymaker, won his seat by beating a $ 40 pre-satellite victory and then the live satellite win.
If you are serious about participating in WSOP, you may want to dedicate a decent amount of cash from your balance and participate in multiple WSOP satellites directly. Your chances are much better and it will relieve the pressure if you know you have x amount of purchases available in case your current WSOP bid fails. Online qualifiers are also good because instead of paying $ 10,000 to discover that you are out of your WSOP league, online qualifiers give you the opportunity to determine how you compare to other opponents.
Almost every major poker room offers World Series of Poker satellites. As the upcoming World Series of Poker approaches, poker sites will start promoting the tournaments more intensely.
