Satellites, an optional preliminary stage, provide the chance to gain tournament entry at a greatly reduced price. The two types offered are single table and super satellite.
Single table Satellites are held daily from 8am to 2am. Players outlasting the opponents at their table will receive tournament entry. These minature tournaments typically last about 90 minutes. There will be approximately 2,500 of the seat-producing freezouts over the course of the tournament.

As many as ten seats have been awarded on a single night, since rebuys are permitted during the first hour of play. The seats won in these events are non-transferable and non-negotiable.
