Satellite tournaments

Satellites are lower buy-in tournaments where players can participate to win an entry into higher buy-in tournaments.

We run satellites to our flagship events throughout the week and they're a good way to qualify, for only a fraction of the buy-in.

To see what bigger buy-in tournament you would be advancing to, follow these instructions:

  1. Go to the tournament lobby of the satellite tournament you wish to play.
  2. Under the Home tab, there will be a link that reads Satellite to [tournament name].
  3. Click on this link and it will open up the tournament window of the bigger buy-in event.

If you win a satellite, you will not be credited with cash to your Stars Account. You will only be granted a seat to the bigger buy-in event.

Unregistration from the target tournament is not always possible. So, if you already know you have no interest in playing a particular target event, you should not register in one of its satellites.

If a particular tournament doesn't have the option to unregister, you'll be shown a warning message in the satellite's registration window.
