If you want a chance at winning that cash prize, head on over to PartyPoker. The reputable online poker site is currently hosting satellites to the UKPC Main Event on a daily basis.
The one-cent games run every half hour from noon to midnight. Each satellite guarantees 5 seats for the £4 satellite in the afternoon. The top 50 players from that event will then make it to the £15 satellites scheduled in the evening. After that event, the top 25 will move on to the final satellite tournament with a £76 buy-in. Five players from this event can then make arrangements to be in Nottingham for the UKPC Main Event.
Players should note that you don’t have to work your way up from the one-cent satellites. You can just jump in any game that has a buy-in that fits your budget.
