What we have here is a huge live poker tournament, with a buy-in of $10,000, taking place on board a really nice cruiser sailing from Venice in Italy, through the Greek archipelago, all the way up to Turkish capital of Istanbul - and then back again.
Thick online satellite program
To join in this poker party, you could buy in directly at the reasonable price of $10,000. Otherwise there's a host of online qualifiers at real bargain prices, starting at a symbolic $1.
The Party Poker satellite model is rich, not to say complex. You'd better check it out on the site yourself. There are continuous cheap games of various kinds to join in, both sit-and-gos and multi tables. Every day there's a $70 qualifier with guaranteed seats.
Weekly satellite final with guaranteed seats
It all leads up to a weekly satellite worth $640. Five PPM seats are guaranteed, so every week this tournament will send at least five players on a really spectacular journey.
There's also a $1,250 monthly finale giving away a $12,000 package for every 10 entrants.
Last year, young Mike Schneider beat Kenna James in the headsup match for the million. Five days of fierce competition was over, and he certainly was a worthy winner.
Of course, if you don't make it all the way to the final table, you'll have more time to enjoy the surroundings.
