If you are wanting to play a big Buyin Tourney but don’t want to pay the Buyin for those tourneys, there are Satellite Tourneys you can play to win a ticket (free admission) to the larger Buyin tourneys.
Make sure before you register for a Sat that you know what that Sat leads to if you win a ticket. Read Tourney info and look at Prize Tab to know. Most Sat Tourneys will finish within a few hours of the next Step or Main Event.
1 Chip Buyin Sat (Step 1)- Prize is 6 Chip Ticket
- If you place high enough to win ticket, the app will automatically enter you in the next Step which will be a 6 Chip Buyin
6 Chip Buyin Sat (Step 2)- Prize is 40 Chip Ticket
- If you place high enough to win ticket, the app will automatically enter you in the next Step which will be a 40 Chip Buyin
Main Event- 40 Chip Buyin- Prize Pool 40k GTD
You do not have to play each Step. You can skip Step 1 and just play Step 2 for 6 Chips to win a 40 Chip Ticket.
Keep in mind that if you win Ticket, it has to be used on the next Step of that series leading to the Main event. You can not win a ticket today and use it tomorrow. So plan accordingly. Not all Sat series have multiple steps. There may just be a Step 1 then Main Event.
