EPT London Satellites 2010
EPT London satellites will be running on Pokerstars in a number of formats; there will be multi table tournament satellites and super satellites as well as sit and go steps satellites. The super sats are easy enough as you play your way through them and final feed into a main event. The steps are a little more complex. You can buy in at any level but most choose level one, 9 players compete in a sit and go format and the top 2 go through to step two. This carries on until the final step in which the winner takes down and EPT London package.
EPT London will act as the Grand Final of the new UK and Ireland Poker Tour. Players who win one of the UKIPT events leading up to EPT London will be given a free London EPT package. This works in the same way as the European Poker Tour does, if you win an EPT event you get a seat in the Grand Final in Monte Carlo, if you win an UKIPT you get a seat in the UKIPT Grand Final which is EPT London.
EPT London satellites will be running right up until October 2nd on Pokerstars, the official sponsor of both the European Poker Tour and the UK and Ireland Poker Tour. All EPT London satellites will include money for your expenses as well as the full tournament buy in. If you qualify for ETP London via one of Pokerstars EPT London satellites then you may find you will be required to wear Pokerstars merchandise.
You can find out about all the qualifier they are running by visiting the PokerStars website.
Apart from the WSOPE it’s the biggest poker tournament of the year in the UK!!
