bwin Poker and PokerNews are collaborating with a series of satellites to the PokerNews Cup Alpine to be held in the Austrian Alps from March 21-28. This satellite series is intended to send three people on deluxe packages to this event via a satellite final each week. Each €6,000 Package consists of a €1,500 tournament ticket to the main event, accommodations, ski passes, cash for travel expenses and VIP invites to the PokerNews Welcome Party.
The Satellites :
Running from now until February 21st, there are daily sub-satellites for as low a buy in as $3.30. Winning these sats will qualify players for the Final Qualifier on each Saturday at 20:00 CET. If players want to skip the sub-sats, they are able to buy-in to the Final Qualifier straight up for $540. The top three finishers will win passes to the PokerNews Cup Alpine 2009.
