There are all sorts of good things at the WSOP.

Main Event Qualifying

bwin Poker’s Main Event satellite’s start at just $2.20 but it all feeds into the $15k Main Event finals, which run every Sunday. If you’d rather just avoid the qualifying part altogether you can just buy-in for a straight $320.

Side Event Qualifying

Similar to the Main Event satellites, the qualifiers start at just $2.20 and lead all the way up to a $320 final that runs every Tuesday and Thursday. The difference is that there will be more packages to win.

Main Event Freerolls
