At the end of the season, the Eastern Poker Tour will hold a Championship No Limit Hold Em Tournament for its top 27 players. The prizes for the tournament are cash and, for first place, $9,000 cash or a $12,000 2011 WSOP Main Event package. The Championship No Limit Hold Em Tournament is televised on Comcast SportsNet NE.
Championship No Limit Hold Em Tournament Eligibility
To qualify for the Championship No Limit Hold Em Tournament, you need to have advanced from one of two satellite tournaments.
To qualify to play in the satellite tournaments, you have to have either won at least one tournament during the season, or, have earned enough points to place you in the top 15% of your region.
The two satellites are run on separate days: The August 28th tournament is for those who qualify by points and the August 29th tournament is for winners of the no limit hold em tournaments played throughout the season.
PokaPaloma’s 2010 performance on the Eastern Poker Tour
I qualify to play in both satellites! So I have TWO chances to make the final 27.
Prior to playing last Friday, I was eligible for both, but, with regard to the points (top 15%) satellite, there were only three players between me and the cut off amount. Placing second on Friday, put 12 players between me and the cut off amount; meaning that I probably don’t have to sweat the next 8 weeks.
