Party Poker is hosting their biggest ever tournament on November 30th, 2008. The tournament, called "King of the Table", will have $2 million dollars in total guarantees. According to the site, this means that the first place winner will be guaranteed at least $300,000.
The tournament will have a buy-in of $600+$40 and a "championship blind structure".
There are a number of ways to gain entry into this tournament if you can't quite afford the $640 buy-in.
First off, there are a number of sub-qualifiers that will win you access into one of the larger satellites. There is a $1 daily speed rebuy, a daily $8 speed sub-qualifier, a $2 daily speed rebuy, a $6 daily speed sub-qualifier, a $1 daily speed rebuy qualifier into the Saturday Super Satellite, and a $4 daily speed sub-qualifier into the Super Satellite on Saturday.
These six events can win you entry into the twice-daily King of the Table Qualifier, Mega Friday Satellite or Super Satellite Saturday events. The King of the Table Qualifier has a buyin of $64+$6 and awards 10 seats to the "King of the Table" tournament and runs twice daily; the "Mega Friday Satellite" has a buy-in of $50+$5, runs on Fridays and awards at least 25 seats to the big tournament, while the "Super Satellite Saturday" event has a buy-in of $32+$3 and awards 10 seats to the "King of the Table" tournament.
Also, you can win entry to a "King of the Table Special Friday" qualifier that runs at 15:30 ET every Friday and awards 20 seats to the big event.
