Qualifying satellites for the BSOP are now available on PokerStars. Basically, there are two types of satellites: the so-called Seat Only (only the vacancy) and the Full Package. The winners of the Seat Only satellites award their entry in the BSOP event for which he played the satellite. These winners must arrange their own travel and accommodation arrangements for the tournaments.
Those who have won a Full Package satellite will receive a BSOP package, which includes the Main Event buy-in, accommodation. This gives you everything you need to enjoy your stay as you play to try to become the next BSOP champion.
Do not forget that PokerStars is also organizing free qualifiers - that means you can get to the Brazilian Series of Poker completely for free!
HOW TO PLAY
Playing BSOP satellites on PokerStars is easy. If you are not yet a PokerStars player, first download the free PokerStars software and create an account. Then open the PokerStars lobby; click 'Events', then 'More' and 'BSOP' to register on a satellite of your choice.
All qualifiers should verify that the "Receive congratulatory email" option on PokerStars is enabled so that they can receive the confirmation email when they win the spot.
CLASSIFICATION ON SITE
You can also qualify at the tournament site at all BSOP events. To do this, simply search the "Super Satellite Live" schedule in each step.
