Fancy becoming known in the professional poker world? Weighing in the financial benefits of being a poker celebrity? Well, you can achieve that goal by playing in Pacific Poker’s Poker Open V qualifiers which take place every Saturday from 16:00 PPT.

The event itself will take place in Maidstone, England, from Oct 27th to Nov 7th 2008 and it will feature a prize pool of $648,000 and a first-place prize of $250,000. Oh yeah, and it will be televised. Make it there, and you’ll be seen all over the world rubbing elbows with the likes of Andrew Feldman, Dennis Taylor and Shane Warne.

Such an event is definitely not cheap to enter directly, but celebrity wannabes are given an excellent chance by Pacific Poker to earn a seat for much less. The weekly qualifiers I told you about give players the possibility to win a package worth $8,500 to the televised event.

Sure, the buy-in for these satellites may be $300+$30 which is still not cheap in the majority of online poker players’ books but compared to the direct buy-in, it is a true bargain. On top that, sub satellites (qualifiers for the qualifier) will also be available in large numbers.

Register for the qualifiers directly, or buy into one of the sub satellites for as little as $3+$0.3. STT qualifiers are also available for a slightly higher prize ($6+$0.6) but offer much better odds for leveling up the satellite system.

If you do win a $8,500 package, you might want to know that it is non-refundable and it cannot be sold or peddled away under any shape or form.
