This is an interesting topic to poker players all over the entire world. The World Series of Poker is the ‘Holy Grail’ of player’s worldwide, period! All serious poker players would love to go to the WSOP. It is held in Las Vegas every summer. It is the culmination of many satellites that are held all over ending with this one monumental event.
So what does a guy/girl have to do to qualify for this monster poker tournament? Well of course there is the easy way. You cough up $10,000 and pay the entry fee. That is the simple plan and by far the easiest way to get it done. Most of the professional players you see there year after year do it this way. If you are luck enough to win the tournament, you get a free ride back the next year.
The next way is to play in what are called satellites where you can win a seat to the WSOP. There are usually a large number of these and they are sprinkled all over the United States. You can enter a satellite and if you win it, you have your entry and seat into the big tournament. Now this could save you some serious entry fee money, but you must remember you have to WIN to get the seat. You won’t be the only one at these satellites either.
The final way is perhaps the easiest, and most likely the cheapest. The only problem with it is that you will have to play a lot of poker the accomplish it, it you ever do. This method would be online poker. Almost all of the sites online now have some type of qualifying tournaments for gaining a seat to the WSOP. If you have been watching the WSOP on TV, you know that many of the younger players won their seats to the game online. They talk about it all the time. You will hear that someone at table got his/her entry online for participating in a $40 tournament. And there are quite a few that get in that way. Many of the persons at the last final table will be online winners to the game. At that final table, they are all going to be millionaires when they leave, even in ninth place!
