It might be because there is no real summer to be felt throughout most of the parts of Europe: many larger tournament series already have started to schedule their stops for 2012, giving me the chance to look out for online qualifiers fair in advance. The World Poker Tour for example has already announced their stop to Dublin on Jan 4th through 8th 2012 with their new co-sponsor PKR.

Nevertheless 888poker received a license to host $6,500 Package Qualifiers including the 2,500 € buyin as well as $1,400 spending/travelling money, six nights stay at City West Hotel in Dublin and of course some merchandising and an experience poker players usually do not forget.

From what I have seen and read so far, the direct qualifiers take place every (other?) Saturday with a buyin of $220, sub-satellites for the finale are running numerous times each week with a buyin of $16.50 (as a rebuy). Since the (sub-)satellites are already running, I will be taking shots at the sub-satellites every time I am able to play them. I will not use more than 1 rebuy and the addon for each sub-satellite. Also, I will be playing the sub-satellites if I have already won a seat to the finale, because cash would be awarded for another seat won. This is supposed to result into small returns to the bankroll. All in all not more than 10 % of the initial bankroll will be used to play the sub-satellites and I will not buy into the finale directly.

This is already the second WPT tourney I am aiming for or at least which seem to be worth trying to qualify for after I announced the WPT Amnéville to be one of the target tournaments early on. Even though many plans go through my mind an my blog posts, I will stay on the lookout as the schedules of other series will receive additional tourneys for 2012 as well.

Stay tuned for upcoming scores and a page added with an overview of online results.
