Live satellites are also held during the week of the Macau Poker Cup event. If you fail to qualify and would still like to play the MPC Red Dragon Main Event or other side events, you may buy directly into a tournament through the Poker Room cage at PokerStars LIVE Macau, one hour before for any of the side events and from one day before for the Main Event.
