Best WSOPE Satellite Qualifiers – Betfair Poker

As official sponsors of the WSOPE, Betfair are one of the best sites to qualify for the WSOPE.  In fact, Betfair contributed over $1 million to last year’s WSOPE event and they regularly promote live packages to their players worth up to $30,000.  Betfair offer the largest range of WSOPE satellites and the competition is relatively weak compared to most sites such as PokerStars, giving you a better chance of qualifying.  

The WSOPE satellites at Betfair are scheduled in Level format.  Starting from $5 in buy-ins, players can progress up these levels or even pay the $535 Level 3 buy-in for a chance to win the $23,000 live package.  The qualifiers are run in both regular and turbo format and run daily every hour or so. I suggest visiting the site to learn more about their current promotions.

About the WSOPE

Up until 2007, players had to flock all the way to Vegas if they wanted to win a WSOP-branded bracelet.  Since then however, the WSOPE has catered to European poker players and is still one of the most respected and well-known live tournament series in poker.  Players such as Anette Obrestadt have become overnight celebrities from winning the inagaural WSOPE 2007 event.  

In terms of size, the WSOPE is limited in comparison to its older american brother.  The average prize of the last WSOPE Main Event only reached £1 million (around $1.5 million) which in comparison to the WSOP’s $10,000 Main event (worth $8 million) is much smaller.  However sometimes smaller is better, and the WSOPE still manages to get decent coverage on ESPN and attracts many of Europe’s biggest pros including Tony G, Andy Bloch, Allen Cunningham and Gus Hansen.  At the moment, the WSOPE is held in the Casino at the Empire in Leicester Square, London.  The 2009 WSOPE event which was held from September 17th to October 1st consisted of four bracelet events including a £1,000 NLH, a £2,500 PLH/PLO, a £5,000 PLO and a £10,000 World Championship NLH Main Event.
