Carbon Poker’s Live Event Satellite Tournaments
Sunday, 28. March 2010

Carbon Poker offers their players the opportunity to turn their wildest poker fantasies into reality with their extensive schedule of satellite tournaments. With each passing month, Carbon Poker creates new and innovative ways to offer their players seats to some of the world’s largest and most prestigious live poker events through a variety of satellites with buy ins as low as $2 as well as a variety of other exciting promotions.

Carbon Poker’s satellite tournaments are multi tiered tournament structures offering participants the opportunity to win their way through the different levels of tournaments with the last level being a Grand Final qualifier to a major live poker event. Satellites do not award cash to the winners; rather, they award tickets to the next tier level satellite. In addition, players may forgo the initial satellite tier and buy in to a higher level tier satellite. Progressive levels of satellites will have a higher buy in so that if the first level of satellites has a $2 buy in, the following level might have a buy in of $15 or thereabouts. Let us take the example where a player might pay a $2 entry into a satellite. Let us say that a total of 100 players registered for the satellite, which would mean that there is an accumulated prize pool of $200. If the next level has a buy in of $15 then the $2 satellite will award ($200/$15) 13 tickets to the $15 satellite. In this example, there is also a left over of $5 as $200/$15 really equals 13.3333. In the event that there is money “left over” in a satellite tournament then the “left over” money is awarded to the winners according to a standard tournament payout structure.

Carbon Poker’s satellite tournaments are an incredible vehicle for the average online poker player to realize their dreams of entering a major live tournament with all inclusive prize packages valued as high as $15,000 to the Aussie Millions, Asia-Pacific Poker Tour and of course the World Series of Poker (WSOP).
