Satellite entry: £30 and a dream
It is 8PM at and I am sitting at my computer scrolling through the poker lobby on grosvenorcasinos.com, looking for something fun to play. A link reading ‘£30 satellite to the 25/25 series’ pops up on the screen. I am not entirely sure what a ‘25/25’ is but it is only £30 so I hop in anyway. After a couple of hours I win the satellite and discover what I have qualified for. The 25/25 is a tournament series with events at Grosvenor Casinos around the country. The buy-in is £225, the starting stack £25K and there is a guaranteed prize pool of £25K. Like many tournament series you can play online satellites to win entry to the tournament. Somewhat surprisingly you also have the option to play day 1 of the event online, returning for day 2 at a live casino.
