The full path to qualify for the European Poker Tour looks like this:

Freeroll (rebuy for $0,11) → $2,20 1/4 Final → $11 or $22 1/2 Final → $215 Sunday Final
(3 min levels) (2 or 3 seat to semi-final gtd.) (1 or 2 seats to Final gtd) 1 EPT Sochi Package gtd.

You can find satellites in the PokerStars client: Events – Live – EPT Sochi.
