In the first part of our series describing the methods in which you can qualify for the 2011 World Series of Poker on Full Tilt Poker we revealed that you can make it the Main Event for only a buck. Of course, if large field tournaments aren’t your cup of tea, Full Tilt Poker has you covered.
If you’re a Sit & Go lover, then Full Tilt Poker’s Steps Tournaments are just for you.
You can parlay your $3.30 Step 1 entry into a $12k Main Event Prize Package, without ever having to play a single MTT. Just keep winning at your tables to advance through all seven steps, and you could find yourself sitting next to the world’s best players this summer in Las Vegas.
Full Tilt Poker’s Steps Tournaments are running around the clock. Even if you don’t win a step, you can place high enough and still stay in the game by winning a seat at the same or a lower level and stay in the game.
The Steps Tournaments are available in a range of formats to make it easier to find one to suit your taste.
Of course you can buy in directly to any level you want at any time, and from Step 3 on, you can use your Step ticket to buy-in to any tournament with an equivalent buy-in amount.
How about getting to The Main Event for free. If this sounds good to you, then you may want to check out Full Tilt Poker’s Race to The Main Event.
Start off by playing in any of Full Tilt Poker’s Main Event Race – Round 1 Sit & Go Freeroll tournaments. Win there, and it’s off to the second round, where the top two finishers will win a seat in the weekly Main Event Race – Final Freeroll tournament, where you could win a $10k seat at The Main Event in Las Vegas this summer for absolutely free.
Of course, you could skip either of the first two rounds, and even both if you play your cards right.
The Final Freerolls will be held on Sundays at 16:30 ET starting Sunday, March 27 and will take place through Sunday, June 26. Each Final will award at least three $10k Main Event entries.
No matter which route you take to get to the Main Event, if you win your seat on Full Tilt Poker and go on to claim the WSOP Championship bracelet, Full Tilt Poker will pay you an extra $10,000,000 on top of your WSOP winnings.
In our final installment coming in a few days, we’ll cover the remaining ways you can make it to the WSOP Main Event for just a fraction of the buy-in price on Full Tilt Poker.
