How to Go from Ontario to WSOP Paradise in the Bahamas with GGPoker 101

The WSOP Paradise isn't all about the Main Event. There are fifteen events in total that nicely balance the goals of attracting the biggest players in the world to the series and providing a bracelet opportunity for more casual players.

For anyone with a big name or big budget, there are six high-roller events.

Four of these events are no limit Texas hold'em tournaments with buy-ins that range from $10,000 to $100,000. The other two offer pot limit Omaha for $10,000 or $25,000 a pop.

However, if you would rather roll a little lower, there is also a $1,500 version of the Mystery Millions format, a $1,000 Mini Main Event, and the $800 Flip and Go event.

Bridging the gap, is the $5,300 Main Event along with a handful of other low-four-figure tourneys including an online-only event, the $2,000 Mystery Bounty Pot-Limit Omaha.
