The dream of every online poker player is to earn their way into a major tournament. Whether online (as there are a multitude of online tournaments that have large payouts) or in a casino, the opportunity to take part in a big dollar tournament and potentially take down a large payday is the goal all poker players want. Pacific Poker is one of those poker rooms that knows this and has come up with an interesting promotion that can give you this opportunity.
Pacific Poker is offering the chance to some skillful players to parlay their online skills into a ticket into a major tournament and not just a WPT or WSOP event alone. The list of tournaments that are available for participation spans the globe and, with some tournament satellites available for a $1, offer an excellent return on investment for your online time. The prize packages available can total up to $15,000 and you have the chance to make much more than that by doing well in the individual event of your choice.
