The long-awaited satellite path for the 2021 World Series of Poker Main Event has been revealed by the GGPoker Network. As of August 1, the Road To Vegas promotion takes place throughout the entire network to give international players a chance at winning a $12,500 package. These exclusive qualifiers will only be available on the GGPN including lead operator Natural8.
WSOP 2021 Las Vegas
Poker enthusiasts from all over the world dream of competing in the $10,000 Main Event in Las Vegas, which returns after a one year hiatus during the COVID-19 pandemic. The pinnacle live poker event of the year kicks off on November 4 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino. It will conclude with the Final Table on Tuesday, November 16 and Wednesday, November 17 when a new World Champion is crowned.
“The WSOP Main Event is the most prestigious tournament on the planet, and GGPoker’s Road To Vegas will allow players from all over the world to win their way in,” said Daniel Negreanu, GGPoker Global Ambassador. “I’ve been playing the Main Event since 1998. There’s no tournament like it. It’s every poker player’s dream to win it, including mine.”
Road to Vegas Main Event Satellites on Natural8
During the first week of the Road To Vegas satellite program, five daily qualifiers from Monday to Saturday offer at least one guaranteed package. On the opening day on Sunday, eight satellites are scheduled to take place.
This amounts to 38 qualifier tournaments in the first seven days and they guarantee at least 65 packages! What exactly is included in the package, which is worth $12,500 total?
● $10,000 WSOP 2021 Main Event tournament entry
● Accommodation at Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas for 7 nights
● $1,250 for travel expenses
● Entry to the GGPoker WSOP Players Party
● Natural8-branded merchandise
● Access to the GGPoker Platinum Lounge at the Rio
All online qualifiers participating in the WSOP 2021 Main Event will also automatically be enrolled in a special last longer promotion. The last man or woman standing wearing the patch of the site they qualified with will receive a special WSOP Europe 2021 package.
Winning an entry to the pinnacle live event of the year has been a dream of poker enthusiasts from all over the world ever since Chris Moneymaker qualified on PokerStars back in 2003. He won his seat through an $86 satellite and turned that into $2.5 million and the title of World Champion. The success story spurred a poker boom at the start of this century and has given hope to aspiring poker players ever since.
In order to potentially achieve a similar dream, you won’t have to break the bank and can win the entry to the $10,000 Main Event in Las Vegas at a portion of the expense. As of August 1, three different buy-ins are available in order to take a shot at the $12,500 WSOP Main Event package: $80, $250, and $1,050. For now, there are also additional $108 step satellites available for the $1,050 final as well.
Natural8 LiveX Sponsorships to Vegas
Natural8 players also have the chance to win sponsorship packages during the 2021 WSOP Online. All winners during the 33 gold bracelet events from August 1 until September 12 will earn a Team Bling Sponsorship of either $5,000 or $10,000. And if a Natural8 player wins the flagship $5,000 WSOP Online Main Event, he or she will receive a massive $100,000 sponsorship package and become the captain of Team Bling!
As part of the WSOP Amazing Race, Natural8 players compete for LiveX packages worth between $2,000 and $5,000. There are seven country rankings and three region leaderboards from August 1 to September 12 for which players earn points with their performances in WSOP-branded tournaments.
Last but not least, cash game experts can earn a boost for their accumulated tournament points in the separate WSOP 2-in-1 challenge. This time, WSOP side events and satellites count as well. The boost on top can be earned by playing in Hold’em, PLO/PLO-5, Short Deck (6+), Rush & Cash or All-in or Fold cash games. Six Flipout tournaments will award $5,000 in cash prizes each Monday while the 2021 WSOP Online is taking place on Natural8.
Affordable highlight events during the 2021 WSOP in Las Vegas from September 30 until November 23, 2021, include The Reunion with a buy-in of $500 and a $5 million guarantee, the Millionaire Maker, the Crazy Eights, and signature events such the COLOSSUS and Little One for One Drop.
Plenty of tournaments will have a buy-in of $1,500 or fewer to give players of all bankrolls a shot at the elusive gold bracelet. Team Bling or LiveX sponsorships can be used to take a shot at glory in Las Vegas.
