Say Hello to the Weekly WSOP Qualifier Guide

The World Series of Poker season is approaching fast and we know you're all wondering where the best WSOP satellites are online.

If you're looking for the best ways to qualify for this year's WSOP Main Event, or find a cheap way to play some prelims, this is a series you should keep an eye on.

The satellites will be low buy-in, high buy-in and everything in between. We’ll highlight huge tournaments as well as Sit & Go step programs. In addition we’ll also give you our PokerListings’ pick of the week, which will be a particularly value-packed satellite. 

This week we’ll kick things off by taking a look at the various offers from 888poker, William Hill and Cake Poker.
