The Grand Prix is back and it's online at partypoker, visiting five different regions, all at once!
Clear up your schedules on May 3 to 10 because that's the time when each of the five Grand Prix takes place. Each Grand Prix has 19 Day 1s to choose from. Play one or all of them but if you progress to the final day more than once, you can only take your biggest stack through with you.
All Day 1s start with 50,000 chips and play to a 12-minute clock apart from the final two starting flights on May 10 which are played on 6-handed tables with a 6- and 3-minute clock respectively.
Each of the five Grand Prix events are located in specific regions. Will you become the champion of your region? The table below shows which Grand Prix you can enter.
To qualify, your partypoker account must be set up as being in the respective country. For instance, if you are German but live in Austria and your partypoker account is set up with an Austrian address, you are not allowed to play in the Grand Prix. This goes for all other countries in the Grand Prix.
Two low buy-in (1/10 of the Grand Prix's buy-in) Phase 1s take place daily and feed into the next available Day 1, giving everybody a chance to play in their country's Grand Prix event.
Grand Prix 4 Dealers Online - Open to Everyone
The Grand Prix 4 Dealers Online tournament is open to everyone who plays at partypoker. There are 24 Days 1s scheduled from April 26 to May 3, each with a $55 buy-in. Despite the affordable buy-in, they slapped a $250,000 guarantee on the prize pool!
From each buy-in, $5 is donated to a special fund created to help the freelance poker dealers who are currently unable to work due to the worldwide pandemic. Dusk Till Dawn owner and partypoker LIVE founder Rob Yong has promised to match the first £100,000 raised.
You can donate on this JustGiving page if you cannot make it to any of the Day 11s. Likewise, there's a $100 Donation Tank you can buy in to in the partypoker lobby where 100% of that donation goes towards the fund.
The winners of each Grand Prix, plus the Grand Prix 4 Dealers Online event that runs April 26 to May 3, are guaranteed an extra prize. The single table tournament, exclusive to the five winners from each country alongside the winner of the Grand Prix 4 Dealers, will be played on Monday May 11th. Those six winners get to play in a free 6-handed SNG where the following prizes are at stake:
- 3x WPT 500 seats
- 1x $1,600 WPTDeepStacks seat
- 1x $3,200 WPT Main Event seat
- 1x $5,500 WPT Passport package
- All finalists will receive a prize!
