On alternating Sundays, 888 poker will be hosting 2012 World Series of Poker qualifiers. The buy-in is not too cheap at $525. If you do not want to drop $500 on one buy-in, there are satellite games that are cheaper and also give you an opportunity to qualify. The less expensive satellite games are a far cry from $525 and they cost a meager $1+.10. The way satellite qualifiers work is that 1 player will advance for every $25 in the stakes. This basically means that 1 out of 25 players will make it past the satellite. This is a stage 1 event; there are 3 stages total. Another stage 1 event has a buy-in of $5+.50 and that advances 1 out of every 5 players to the next stage.There is only one way to make it through the second stage, and buy-in to that satellite will cost you $23+2 and in this stage 1 in 5 players will advance to stage 3. To immediately buy-in to the third stage’s satellite it will cost a player $105+10 and 1 out of 5 players will go through to the 2012 WSOP 888 qualifier.The 888 qualifiers will ensure the winner a $15,000 prize pack that is primarily consistent of the $10,000 buy-in to the WSOP. $2,000 will be given to you in order to pay for any and all travel costs. $500 more dollars will be given as spending money and 8 nights of hotel stay will be taken care of. You will even get a VIP invitation to an 888 sponsored party.With a total cash prize amount that approaches $200 million, there are not many poker players who would pass up on an opportunity to play in the World Series of Poker. There are even less people who wouldn’t pay a little over a dollar for a chance to make it there either.
