The $10,300 WCOOP Main Event comes with a huge $7 million guarantee, and thousands of players from all around the world will be doing everything they can to book their seat at the table. While some will be able to stump up the five-figure buy-in without hardship, for a majority it will be a grind to get there.

Well the folks at PokerStars are trying to make that workload a little easier with their Fast Track satellites.

You can skip the first two steps and hop straight into the third of four qualifying rounds using the Fast Track Satellites, which have seen a host of added value since the rescheduling.

Players can jump into Round Three, which comes with a $109 buy-in, and they can have plenty of chances to qualify to the next stage as six Round Three tournaments are scheduled daily.

Making it through to Round Four puts you into the final $1,050 satellite where two seats are guaranteed twice a day.

Other Ways to Satellite

There are also two Mega Satellites which run daily on PokerStars to the $10,300 WCOOP Main Event. Entry costs $215 and one seat is guaranteed per Mega Satellite. However, on Sundays, two additional seats are added to the first daily qualifier.

Players can also use Phase Satellites to get in on the cheap. Phase 1 satellites run on the quarter past of every hour and are hyper turbo events that have a $2.20 buy-in. Surviving Phase 1 secures your place in Phase 2 where at least 50 $215 Mega Sat tickets will be up for grabs. Nabbing one of those then puts you into the final phase, which will result in you winning a WCOOP Main Event ticket on the condition you finish in the paid places.

Finally there are the Feeder Satellites, which offer the cheapest route into the Main Event. Qualify from the $0.55 feeder sat into the $22 version. Make it through that to then bag yourself one of the $215 qualifying ticket.
