In late summer and early autumn, players will have a busy tournament schedule. The WSOP kicked off on August 1st, PokerStars is gearing up to launch a record-breaking WCOOP, and partypoker has decided not to stand aside – the poker room will once again host the WPT World Online series.
The festival will take place from 13 August to 15 September. Despite the fact that there are ten days left before the start, “Party” is in no hurry to publish the schedule – the organizers limited themselves to information about only a few competitions.
It is known that a special WPT Pro Hunt tournament will open the WPT WOC. This is a knockout event with a $33 buy-in and a $30,000 guarantee, 20% of which will be donated to charities.
Almost all partypoker ambassadors and pro players will take part in the tournament – Patrick Leonard, Nikita Bodyakovsky, Courtney G, Jamie Staples and Joao Simao. To date, they have confirmed their participation.
For each invited professional knocked out, the player receives a special prize and a $109 Main Event satellite ticket. The champion of the event, in addition to money, takes a ticket to the ME WPT WOC at a price of as much as $5,300.
$ 5,000,000 Guaranteed Main Event
Another tournament, which was described in “Party” – the Main Event of the series with a buy-in of $5,300 and a prize pool of $5,000,000. The Main Event will be four days long, with the starting flights taking place on three consecutive Sundays starting August 29th. Day 2 and Day 3 will take place on September 13th and 15th, with the final table being played on the last day of the festival.
Party does not change its traditions when it comes to satellites to major events. Qualifying tournaments for the Main Event have already started, you can start your way to them from $0.01:
Qualifier for $0.01 – 15 tickets to Phase 1 for $4.40 – 10% of the field goes to Phase 2 for $22 – 10% of the field goes to Phase 3 for $109 – up to 20 tickets to the key event are drawn in the final.
It is noteworthy that partypoker decided to create direct competition with GGPokerOK – WSOP Online runs from August 1st to September 12th, and the series will be held with almost 100% overlap.
