Participate in social media contests
We recommend that you follow WPT Global on Twitter, as they are regularly running contests where they give away tickets to WPT World Championship satellites.
Also, many World Poker Tour ambassadors and well-known players will be holding contests during October and November with $12,400 prize packages up for grabs. One of the latest giveaways is that of player and author (and fellow Cardplayer Lifestyle contributor) Amanda Botfeld:
This is my dad teaching me how to play poker with lime green chips when I was 13.
