It's possible to qualify for absolutely nothing if you take part in Party Poker's freeroll program or you can take a direct shot in one of the big weekly satellites.
It goes without saying that Copenhagen, Montreal and Prague will be amongst the most popular international stops on the WPT this year so it's worth qualifying early.
Below is a look at the qualifying structure for each of the prestigious events.
This is the final week to qualify for the inaugural WPT event in Copenhagen, Denmark, which will run Nov. 12-17.
Taking place at the Casino Copenhagen, WPT Copenhagen will attract some of the biggest stars in Scandinavian poker.
There are daily freerolls and $1 qualifiers for the tournament but it all feeds to the $375 satellite that will run on Sunday with at least one $7,000 package to WPT Copenhagen guaranteed.
The $7,000 package to WPT Copenhagen includes:
- $4,300 WPT Copenhagen main event buy-in
- $800 spending money
- Five nights accommodation
- Access to the WPT Players’ Party
Party Poker is also running satellites for the debut WPT event in Montreal, Canada, which is set to run Nov. 23-27.
It’s been four years since the WPT last ran a tournament in Canada so WPT Montreal promises to be one of the premier tournaments in the country this year.
Once again daily qualifiers range from free to $33 with all of it funneling to the $275 buy-in WPT Montreal Satellite. Qualifiers run until Nov. 11, 2012.
Winner walks away with a $5,000 package to WPT Montreal that includes:
- $3,300 WPT Montreal main event buy-in
- $1,300 spending money
- Hotel accommodation
- WPT hospitality
Finally the WPT will return to Prague on Dec. 3-9 to build on the success they had in the region last year.
In 2011 Russian Andrey Pateychuk outlasted 571 players to win a massive first-place prize of $599,720.
Once again daily qualifiers are available at $1, $3 and $35 levels. There is also a selection of daily freerolls.
The $325 buy-in WPT Prague satellite takes place every Sunday with at least one $6,000 package to the live tournament guaranteed. Qualifiers run until Nov. 18, 2012.
The $6,000 packages to WPT Prague include:
- $4,250 main event buy-in
- Six nights’ accommodation
