WPT Boot Camp
Besides the series of poker tournaments, the World Poker Tour has put together a series of conferences/seminars in the form of a "Boot Camp" for attendees. These events are hosted by some of the top pros in the game, and allow non-professionals a chance to learn, in person, from some of the best in the game.
For more information, such as an events schedule, check out my page on the WPT Boot Camps.
Buying In To A WPT Event
You don't have to qualify to play in a World Poker Tour event.
That's one of the attractions; any player who can come up with the
entry fee can play in a World Poker Tour event along with the big
time pro's. Entry fees for WPT events generally run $10,000 + a $200
entry fee, and you're only on tv if you make it to the final table.
Winning a Satellite to Qualify for a World Poker Tour Event
This is, to me, the more interesting way to play in the WPT. In
fact, I've had a policy that if I can't win my way into a big
tourney, I probably don't belong in the tourney anyway, but that
might be because my bankroll is relatively small compared to the
stakes involved in this kind of major tournament.
