A satellite is an online poker tournament where a seat is awarded into a real money tourney. It allows players to participate in huge online or land-based poker tournaments for a much lower buy-in or for nothing at all if player points earned at a poker site were used to play in the poker satellite tournament.

EXAMPLE “I tried a $2.20 satellite for the PokerStars Sunday Million, but ended up busting out within the first hour.”
