BREAKING: PokerStars launches 2010 World Series satellites

ps_news_thn.jpgPokerStars' 2010 World Series satellites are here and there is more reason than ever for you to win your package on the world's biggest online poker site.

Not only can you win your entire trip to the World Series Main Event (and the chance to win millions of dollars), but PokerStars is going to throw in a huge incentive just to make the money in the Main Event: a main event prize package to the PCA or NAPT. Talk about value, huh?

If the satellites aren't up already, keep a very close eye on the EVENTS-> WSOP tab in the PokerStars tournament lobby. They will be up today. You'll find a full range of cash satellites, FPP satellites and Steps, where you can ladder your way to glory.

Here's what you'll you'll be playing for:


  • $10,000 World Series buy-in
  • Eight nights of hotel accommodations (July 4-12) at Palms Hotel and Casino
  • $1,000 cash to go toward travel expenses

  • In all, that's a $12,000 package for the world's biggest poker event.

    As always, the people who choose to fly the PokerStars flag while they play are also going to party in style. If you're a qualifier and wear the PokerStars logo while you play, here's the cool stuff to which you'll be entitled:

  • A PokerStars player bag full of all kinds of neat gear
  • Two tickets to the PokerStars World Series party (last year Nelly brought down the house at Rain in what is still talked about as one of the hottest events in town)
  • 50,000 VPPs (VIP Player Points)
  • Free suite upgrades for Supernova and Supernova Elites

  • If that doesn't sound like enough, PokerStars is throwing in some serious incentives to the people who go deep.

  • If you're qualifier with a PokerStars logo on your chest and make it into the money, PokerStars will give you a free package to the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure or any other North American Poker Tour Main Event.
  • If you are a qualifier with a PokerStars logo on your chest and manage to win the Main Event, PokerStars will give you $1 million. Simple as that

  • So, there you go. Get out there and win your seat. Play your cards right and you could end up like this guy before the end of the year.
