Details on PartyPoker Winter Edition qualifying

PartyPoker is once again looking to get players of all bankroll levels involved in the series. Those looking to earn a Main Event seat at a lower price point have numerous options.

Qualifiers on the satellite tree start at just $0.01. Other qualifying options are priced at $1.10, $5.50, and $22. These feed into the weekly PPC Winter Main Event Satellite, which has no direct buy-in.

PartyPoker should release a complete series schedule in the coming weeks.
