Satellite-Winner Simunic Looking Ahead to Main Events

One of those players looking to add his name to the list of champions is Team partypoker's Josip Simunic who has become the latest to qualify for the $10,300 WPT World Online Championship Main Event, thanks to satellites on the partypoker client.

The Austrian turned a $109 buy-in into a $10,000 partypoker LIVE passport which he will use to enter the $10,000,000 GTD event.

"I qualified for the $10,300 buy-in WPT World Online Championship Main Event starting from a $109 satellite and you can do it too," said Simunic. "I am very happy that there are so many good satellites on partypoker.



"These satellites give so many more players the chance to play in this huge event, as they allow lots of opportunities to qualify from lower buy-ins. Good luck everyone and I hope to see you there!"

The $10,300 WPT World Online Championship Main Event begins on Sunday, September 6. However, the Main Event action really hots up this weekend with the start of the WPT Micro Main Event Championship and the WPT Mini Main Event Championship.


WPT Micro Main Event Championship

The WPT Micro Main Event Championship comes with a $1,000,000 guarantee for just $109 buy-in. There are two Day 1s, on Saturday and Sunday, both starting at 19:00 (BST).

So far almost 750 players have entered the tournament with late registration open for nine levels. Mega satellites are running every day from now until Sunday, with players able to buy-in for as little as $3.30!
