The last in a month-long series of Super Satellites is being held on Sunday at 5:00 ET at PlayersOnly.com. Buy-in for this final WPTNA qualifier is $200 + $12 fee. Players can qualify for the Sunday event through Sit & Go and multi-table cash satellites held throughout the week.
"There were quite a lot of players -- some pretty stiff competition, especially when it got down to the last eight of us," said last Sunday's satellite winner. "I held my own though. Hopefully I'll do OK in Niagara Falls!"
Last night was the final heat in the Gold Card Poker Tour Leaderboard contest, a special competition for participants in PlayersOnly's Gold Card rewards program. Last night's top 100 will join the top 100 from previous heats for the Gold Card Poker Tour Final September 29th when another $12K WPTNA prize package will be awarded to the ultimate winner.
"Our players love tournaments," said PlayersOnly.com Manager David Anderson. "We gave away $25,000 in tournament prizes over the summer and we're continuing into the fall with the WPT qualifiers and the Million Dollar Free Roll Tournament that also started this month."
The $12,000 prize package being awarded to Super Satellite and Gold Card Poker Tour Leaderboard winners includes the $10,000 registration fee for the World Poker Tour North America Championship tournament and travel expenses for the trip to the Fallsview Casino Resort in Niagara Falls, Canada.
