What is an All-In Satellite?
An All-In Satellite is a rake-free NLH poker tournament
where, at the beginning of the tournament, all players go all-in until
there is a winner. This tournament is not a traditional shootout. Players
are matched heads-up throughout the entire tournament and each round is a
Once a player wins a heads-up round, he/she is moved to a different
heads-up matchup with another winner from the previous round. In the case
of chopped pots, both players may move forward with different amounts of
chips than their next opponent.
Once a player accumulates all the chips through heads up matches, the
tournament is complete and a winner is designated.
How Do I Register?
All-in Satellites can be found under the Tournament or Sit & Go
tabs/lobbies. Satellites are labeled "all-in" and denote which tournament
the satellite awards a seat or tournament ticket into.
Once a player registers for the satellite, they do not have to be logged in
to the client or online to win the tournament. At the designated start
time, the client automatically places all players all-in, and the
tournament runs until there is a winner.
How Do I Know if I've Won?
If a player wins while he/she is logged in to the client, a pop-up message
will come up at the end of the tournament informing them that they have
won. If a player wins while not logged in to the client, he/she will
receive a pop-up message on the next login.
First place pays out a tournament seat or tournament ticket, and any
subsequent payouts are for cash and will be added to the player's bankroll
upon completion of the tournament.
In the case that a player does not understand the game format, he/she
should contact WSOP.com support for more details before registering for the
