PokerStars is without a shadow of a doubt one of the greatest online poker sites serving players on the internet today. In addition to many other great features, it is the king of tournament poker and if you’re an online tourney player then you’ll feel right at home there. Live tournament players now also have something to find at PokerStars, as their latest promotion is offering a Main Event Passport which will see the holder waltzing into the Main Event of his choice from the world’s largest live poker tournament series, without having to pay a cent.
In reality the PokerStars Main Event Passport promotion is just another way to reward a lucky player with a Main Event prize package, the twist in this case being that he or she has the choice of five different Main Events. The winner of this promotion can choose between the World Series of Poker, the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, the European Poker Tour, the Latin American Poker Tour and the Asian Pacific Poker Tour. The prize package will then include entry into the Main Event, hotel accommodation for the duration and cold hard cash, presumably to cover travel expenses. The majority of these prize packages come in at a worth of $13,000, although if the winner chooses either the EPT London or the Caribbean Adventure option he or she will be getting even more bang for buck.
Unsurprisingly, the way to get your hands on a Main Event Passport is to be a great tournament player online at PokerStars. The site is offering a variety of different satellite formats, so there’s something for everybody on offer. Straight up cash satellites at a range of different buy-ins for different budgets are on offer, as are FPP Satellites for those not wanting to risk their cold hard cash. Finally Steps Satellites are also being hosted for this promotion, the idea being that the winner of a Step 1 satellite wins a ticket to a Step 2 satellite which is played out for a Step 3 Satellite, and so on and so forth until the Main Event passport is in your hot little hands. Players can buy in at any steps level if their patience starts to wear a little thin.
The promotion has already kicked off and will continue to run from now until July 2nd. With just a month to go it’s time to hit the tables as hard as you can to increase your chances of winning a coveted Main Event Passport . The great thing about this promotion is, of course, if you do win a seat to a Main Event you don’t need to worry about being out of practice, as you will have been working on your game for the entire time you spent earning your Passport. Fame and fortune awaits, so get to the tables!
