How to turn $5 into a Seat in a $2M Online Event

High Rollers at PokerStars

Another big online tournament festival heads to PokerStars in December with the return of the High Rollers on Dec. 1-9.

The festival guarantees $11 million across 27 action-packed tournaments featuring amazing structures.

The highlight of the festival is easily the four-day High Rollers 23: $5,200 NLHE [8-Max, Main Event] featuring a massive $2M Gtd on Dec. 8-11.

Every day there are three to four events with one of them being designated as the headline event at 1 p.m. EST.

Each headline event features a huge buy-in of either $5,200 or $10,300 and boasts prize pools of at least $500,000 except for the High Rollers 20: $5,200 6+ Hold’em [6-Max], $250K Gtd on Dec. 9.

Four of these tournaments feature guarantees of at least $1 million!

There are plenty of other events that feature buy-ins starting at $530 but read on to see how you can easily play in one of the biggest events for next to nothing.

How to Qualify Online

The question many of you are likely asking yourselves is:

"I would love to play this but — isn't it only for the elite players with massive bankrolls?"

The answer to this question is a resounding No.

Anyone, including you, can play in the headline events for as low as $5.50!

While $5.50 isn't $0 it is literally less than pennies on the dollar to get your ticket to a headline event that features massive $5,200 and $10,300 buy-ins.

You start by finding the daily feeder satellites that will just run you $5.50 that feed into a $55 feeder satellite.

Win the $55 and you will be able to play in a $530 direct satellites to the headline events.

As if the incentive to winning a seat to a headline event isn't enough on its own, PokerStars will be adding $50,000 in added seats to its satellites.

While we admit this path will not be easy, it is certainly worth a try as it won't cost you much and will give you a chance to play in events you normally wouldn't dream about for mouth-watering prizes.

It wouldn't be unheard of for a $5.50 qualifier to win the Main Event for $300,000 if not more. Why can't this be you?
