Ladbrokes approved as WSOP satellite

Tables breaking

Ladbrokes Poker is proud to announce that for the second year running, it has been approved to offer satellites for the World Series of Poker. The satellites are under way with nine players having qualified already for the 2008 WSOP Main Event.

Players can win a 2008 WSOP seat at the site through the $1,000+$90 WSOP Final that takes place each Wednesday at 7:45 p.m. (GMT).

The satellites will award one WSOP prize package for every $14,000 generated in the prize pool. Plus, at least one prize package is guaranteed each week.

The prize packages include the $10,000 buy-in to the Main Event as well as money for travel and accommodation.

For those players who don't want to dip too deep into their bankroll for the weekly satellites, there are also qualifiers for the WSOP Final for much less money.

For a $100+$9 buy-in, players can take on a daily WSOP qualifying tournament and last-chance satellites that will get them into the WSOP Final.

Still too rich for you? There are daily qualifiers to the $100+$9 qualifiers for as little as $11+$1 as well.


For the full details of the satellites, visit Ladbrokes Poker's WSOP Lobby located in its multi-table tournaments section under Offline Events.

Ladbrokes Poker is also planning to send players to the 2008 WSOP through its WSOP Team League. In order to take part, players must:

  • Put together a team of players who all have separate accounts. A minimum of 2 players and a maximum of 4 players are permitted in each team.
  • Select a captain and give the team a name.
  • Register the team.
  • Play in the WSOP Team tournaments.

The team tournaments will take place each Thursday to earn points in the league and have a $20+$2 buy-in. The top 100 players in the tournaments will be awarded league points.

First place will receive 100 points, 99 points for second, 90 for third, and so on down to one point for the 100th-place finisher.

The members of the team with the most points at the end of the League will each win a 2008 WSOP prize package. The package includes the $10,000 buy-in for the Main Event, $2,500 for expenses and 10 days' accommodation at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

There will also be one more prize package given out through the WSOP League. All players in the teams that finish in the second through 36th place in the standings will be invited to play in a freeroll with the winner receiving a $14,000 WSOP prize package as well.

Players have until noon (GMT) on Wednesday to put their teams together and get registered to compete in the WSOP League.
