The Party Poker satellite tournament series for the upcoming World Poker Tour stop in Denmark has begun. Running from January 9 to February 19, 2012, the Party Poker WPT Denmark satellite tournament series awards at least one prize package to the event per week.
Each prize package into the WPT National Series Denmark is valued at $3,500 and includes the $2.2k main event buy-in, $550 cash for expenses, and accommodations for four nights. The WPT National Series Denmark takes place from February 28 to March 3, 2012.
The WPT National Series Denmark Party Poker satellite where one prize package is guaranteed to be given out takes place on Sundays at 15:10 ET for a $190 direct buy-in. One prize package will be given out for every $3.5k collected in the prize pool. Players are allowed to win as many WPT National Series Denmark prize packages as they are able to. After the first package, which the player must accept according to the terms stated, attending the WPT Denmark as agreed, all subsequent prize packages are deposited into the player’s real money Party Poker account as tournament dollars for the value of the package, in this case $3.5k.
Players can avoid the $190 buy-in for the WPT Denmark satellite by winning their seat in the event through a satellite qualifier. There are sub qualifier speed events with and without rebuys and even freeroll qualifiers that players can enter as well. That means, a player at Party Poker can win a seat in the next World Poker Tour event in Denmark for absolutely nothing.
