Intertops Poker hosts their $25,000 Guaranteed Tournament this Sunday, and every Sunday, at 5pm EST. While there is no doubt that $25K is a lot of money, it doesn’t mean you have to pay through the nose to play. In fact, Intertops Poker has organized a number of satellites for online poker players to work their way up to the big dance. Here’s what you can do:
- Gold Chip Satellites: You can use 22 of your Gold Chips to buy-in to the Gold Chip satellite tournaments. Prizes go to the top four finalists and include three $25,000 Step 2 Tickets and $5 for 4th place.
- Steps Sit & Go Satellites: The Step satellites have three different levels with three different rewards, buy-ins, and prizes. Buy-ins will start as low as $5.40 and go to $41.30, and prizes will typically award access to the next level for at least the top three finishers. Prizes for the final step are to the top two online poker players; each will get an entry into the coveted $25,000 Guaranteed Tournament.
- Regular Satellites: These satellites feature re-buys (up to 99 of them at 1500 chips each) and add-ons (one, after the first break, worth 2500 chips). These run several times daily for a buy-in of $7.70. For every $162 in the prize pool, an additional seat to the $25K tournament can be one. At least five players must be present to play.
Accepts all Players
All of the above tournaments are available under the “Satellites” tab in the Tournaments menu. Of course, if you’re impatient, or you still have a day job, you can still buy-in directly to the tournament for $162. Keep in mind that this high-dollar tournament will not offer re-buys, add-ons, or time extensions on its 15-minute blinds.
Take a look at the tournament specifics and decide if this will be your first big online poker showdown. Intertops Poker makes it awful tempting to join in on the race–will you try it and see how far you can go?
