Cash satellites – You can participate in these events through a cash buy-in. The range of the buy-ins is extensive and accommodates players of all stake levels.
Steps satellites – In the steps satellites, you have to buy-in to the event just once and you can make your way through to the top level by winning each of the steps or levels on the way. You can buy-in to any level you want, which means you don’t have to start at the bottom and struggle all the way to the top.
FPP satellites – The Frequent Player Points (FPP) you earn at PokerStars can also be used to buy-in to the Main Events Passport satellites. If you are a regular player at the site and have been saving the points for sometime, then now is the best time to use them and play these qualifiers without spending any more money.
