Party Poker’s WSOP 2012 Qualifiers Begin

Last Updated on

Starting this Monday, February 27th, players at Party Poker can now enter qualifiers for the upcoming 2012 World Series of Poker which run through June 17th.

Each Party Poker prize package into the 2012 WSOP Main Event is valued at $14k and includes not only the $10k main event buy-in but a 10-night stay while in Las Vegas for the tournament as well as $2k in expense money.

The 2012 PartyPoker WSOP Main Event Qualifier series starts with daily Freeroll qualifiers sending the top 25 at each to a $2 WSOP Sub Qualifier Speed Rebuy Event. These sub qualifiers run daily and award a seat in the next step up, the WSOP Satellite Qualifier, for every $80 collected in the pot. There is also a $4 sub qualifier speed rebuy event with the same winning qualifications. Players who wish to play a sub qualifier speed event without a rebuy can skip all that, however, and just enter the $9 sub qualifier which sends 1 in 10 players on.

You can also skip all that and just pay the $80 to enter the WSOP Satellite Qualifier directly. These events run two times every day, along with an additional running on Sundays as a Turbo tournament. All of these satellite qualifiers send 1 in 10 players on to the final WSOP Satellite, a weekly event held on Sundays at which the actual PartyPoker WSOP 2012 Main Event prize packages will be awarded, at a rate of 1 in 20.

The 2011 WSOP Main Event champion was Pius Heinz, who took home $8.7 million for his accomplishment.
