One thing PartyPoker does extremely well is offer a large number of satellites to live poker events. Their latest tournament package is for Grand Series of Poker (GSOP) Live Greece, which takes place in Porto Carras Greece from October 11th to 15th of this year.
The event is, unsurprisingly, a No Limit Hold’em affair, and it features a $1,500+$150 buy-in. The festivities will be hosted in the Porto Carras Grand Resort, a venue featuring a luxury marina and its own golf course. It will be one of the first major poker events in Greece since tournaments were just made legal there in late 2010.
As always, PartyPoker makes it affordable to win your way into the series. If you have no bankroll at all, you can play the daily freeroll that awards twenty seats to the GSOP Greece Sub Qualifier Speed $1 Rebuy. This rebuy awards seats to the daily $26+$2 GSOP Greece Satellite Qualifier which, in turn, awards seats for the weekly GSOP Greece Satellite.
GSOP Greece Satellites take place on Sundays at 14:20 ET for $240+$20. 1 in 15 players will win packages for Greece. To guarantee that this tournament gets traffic, PartyPoker is guaranteeing a package every week.
If you are lucky enough to win a prize package, you’re getting $3,600 worth of goodies. It starts, of course, with your $1,650 Greece Main Event entry. You also receive $700 spending money and five nights in the Porto Carras Grand Resort and Casino. In addition, you will receive transportation from the airport to your resort.
Unlike some promotions in the past or on other sites, PartyPoker is letting its players win as many GSOP Greece packages they want. The first package must be used for its intended purpose of staking you for the live event. Every package won thereafter, however, will be credited to your account in the form of tournament dollars.
One thing to keep in mind before attempting to qualify for this event, however, is that you must be at least 23 years old to play in the GSOP Greece Main Event. This is quite different from other parts of the world, so it is worth noting.
The satellites for this exciting new event just started on PartyPoker, so there is plenty of time to get in on the action! The last GSOP Greece Satellite takes place on September 25th. Good luck at the tables and see you in Greece!
