Betfair Poker has launched several new qualifying tournaments for the inaugural Betfair Asian Poker Tour event in Singapore beginning November 12, 2006. New events include single table satellite and multi-table super satellite tournaments.
Betfair Poker players can now compete at twice-daily, multi-table super satellites, seven days a week, for as little as $3 + 30¢. These events feed into several other multi-table and single-table satellites, including 6- and 10-player $32 + $3 and $60 + $5 multi-table events, as well as two $18 + $1.80 multi-table tournaments.
Winners of these satellites will advance to either the Thursday or Sunday multi-table finals, which boast a direct buy-in of $250 + $20. The Thursday final offers one added prize package per event, while the Sunday tournament guarantees at least one player will be awarded a package. In addition, each final will award one package for every 32 players entered.
Prize packages are worth an estimated $8,000 and include the $5,000 Betfair Asian Poker Tour buy-in as well as travel expenses, accommodation and spending money.
