Season 2 of the NAPT enjoyed a successful start to the year with the PCA, and so hopes are high for the 2nd event of the year, NAPT Los Angeles. The NAPT actually finished off Season 1 in Los Angeles, and it was such a success that they’re looking to do it all over again in 2011.
Like last year, the events are held at the Bicycle Casino in LA. Between March 4 and March 12 a variety of tournaments will take place, starting at $300+$35 and going up to $10,000+$300. The Main Event is $4,750+$250 and takes place from March 5 to March 10.
If you can be at the Bicycle Casino on March 4, there are a couple satellites to the Main Event that you can enter. At 1:00 pm there is a $100+$10 rebuy super satellite with two seats guaranteed. At 8:00 pm there is a one rebuy super satellite for $500+$35. Since there are two days for Day 1, you can still satellite into the Main Event on March 5. This super satellite will cost you $1000+$35 to enter.
If the live qualifiers are still out of your price range, download PokerStars and try some online satellites. Clicking on the Events tab and then the NAPT tab shows you all the satellites available. Cash satellites are happening every day and start as low as $2.20. If you prefer sit-&-go’s, you can try the step satellites for as little as $7.50 or 3 FPPs.
To attract people to a PokerStars download, the site also has freerolls to NAPT Los Angeles. Every day two freerolls take place, awarding tickets to the Grand Final which happens on February 20. The Grand Final awards a $7,000 NAPT prize package that includes a Main Event buy-in, hotel accommodation, and $850 for expenses.
If you have not already secured your spot in this year’s NAPT LA Main Event, you should think about doing it soon. Last year the event attracted 701 people and created an incredible prize pool of $3,229,857!
