The World Series of Poker Main Event is in full swing at GGPoker, with players already having competed in the first three starting flights. The action continues this weekend, and there is still plenty of time for players to participate in satellites to earn a spot in the big event. Day 1D begins on Sunday, with the opportunity this week to earn a seat via satellite events.
Solid Start Thus Far
From the first three starting flights, we have seen just over 1,800 players compete in the online poker event. Only 239 players have made it to Day 2. Top names like Ryan Riess have secured a spot in Day 2, hoping to add the gold WSOP Main Event bracelet to their resume.
This Sunday, GGPoker will host the Day 1D flight for the WSOP Main Event, and it kicks off at 6:30 pm UTC. Players will find direct satellites to the event running 24/7 at the online poker site. This option provides a much more affordable way to compete.
There is an $80 satellite that runs daily at four different times and a $250 daily option running 12 times a day. Pay $525, and you can compete in a daily satellite as well, with the event running 12 times too. The number of seats to Day 1D will vary based on the satellite, so be sure to review the details in the poker client when participating in an event.
Step satellites are also up for grabs at GGPoker too, providing a more affordable way for players to compete. The steps will feed into the $80, $250, and $525 events, so players will have to work their way up to these events to earn a seat.

GGPoker is not only offering WSOP action and satellites, but the site has also planned a giveaway for participants. Players who compete in a WSOP event or regularly scheduled event have a shot at winning a gift box.
