partypoker and the World Poker Tour (WPT) are launching the biggest ever online series this summer with the $100m GTD WPT World Online Championships from 17th July to 8th September!

$100M GTD WPT World Online Championships

  • Schedule: July 17 to September 8, 2020
  • Events: 12 Championship events (including 5 Champions Club status events)
  • Prize pool: $100 million guaranteed

The inaugural WPT Online Series was a smashing success thanks to everyone's support. Nearly $53 million was paid out during the festival, but this time the WPT World Online Championship will pay out at least $100 million!

There are a total of 12 Championship events in store for you. Each of the Championship events has three buy-in levels, opening the door to everyone to become a WPT champion. These events come with buy-ins of $33, $320, and $320, except the Main Event (more on that later).

In this poker fest, expect:

  • Single re-entry on all NLH Championship Events
  • Limited late registration
  • Maximum of 2 starting flights for all Championship Events

Real names will also be displayed, so you can really get to know your opponents!

Kicking off the Championship events' schedule is a Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo event. The trio of PLO8 tournaments run over three days and have combined guarantees weighing in at $680,000.

No need to wait long to play in the first event with a seven-figure guaranteed prize pool as the #02 World Championship Pot-Limit Omaha kicks off on July 25 and runs for three days. The $3,200 edition has a cool $1 million guaranteed.

Things get even better come August 1 because that's the day when the first trio of No-Limit Hold'em events shuffle up and deal. The $33 edition has $300,000 guaranteed, the $320 guarantees $1 million, while the $3,200 buy-in boasts of a $3 million guaranteed prize pool!

$16M GTD in the WPT World Championship Main Events
As usual in poker festivals, there will be some huge main events and this one has THREE!

Both the $109 Micro and $1,050 Mini are four-day events with Day 1A starting on August 22. There's $1 million guaranteed in the $109 Micro Main Event and $5 million up for grabs in the $1,050 Mini Main Event!

The $10,300 Main Event begins the following week on August 29 and we can't wait for this one. At least $10 million, that's an eight-figure guarantee, will be won from that one tournament alone!

Winning the $10,300 Main Event not only immortalizes you in poker's history books, but it also sees you become a member of the exclusive Champions Club and grants you a $15,000 seat in the WPT Tournament of Champions presented by Baccarat Crystal with your travel and accommodation all paid for by the WPT!

Four other events do the same, they are the $3,200 buy-in 6-Max, 8-Max, Mix-Max, and Knockout.

Massive Super High Rollers
A pair of Super High Roller tournaments is sure to bring the very best poker tournament players to partypoker. A three-day $25,500 Super High Roller takes place from September 5 and sees another $10 million guaranteed. The following day sees the first day of the $102,000 buy-in Super High Roller, an event with no less than $5 million up for grabs.

WPT World Championship Satellites and Side Events
Satellites for the $10,300 Main Event are running right now under the guise of PP LIVE Passport. These phased satellites have buy-ins of $4.40, $22, $109, and $1,050 with the latter guaranteeing 10x $10K WPT World Online Championship packages. Use this passport for the Main Event and we'll wave the $300 tournament fee, making this a rake-free event!

Buy in at stage of the phases and take your biggest stack forward with you to the next level.

Side events and other promotions will be coming very soon, so make sure to follow partypoker's Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter accounts.

Not a tournament series for everyone, but it is a wpt series, so high buy ins,
are normal. There are still a couple of games with 33USD.
The thing that i see for the first time i believe, is that real names will be displayed
in the tournament and not nicknames.
If that has happened in the past, i wasnt aware of.
Not a bad thing. You can know more about your opponent this way,
if he is some regular player though with history that can be tracked Smile

When it comes to online tournaments this is a very large selection. I am curious when live tournaments will appear again. We know something from when the satellites for these tournaments would be and possibly from when the live tournament season would start.

Even if it is tournaments with high buy-ins, still 100 million dollars is a high number by all accounts.
If they have enough satellite tournaments so regular players can win a seat, it's going to be a very interesting summer.
As always, it's a shame we can't play it over here. On the other hand, I am really busy at work at the moment and don't need the destruction, so maybe this time it's a good thing I can't play this eventq sattelites to it.
Much luck to anybody here that is going to give it a try.

Party Poker enters in the history of poker with this series, but they need to be very careful and to reach at 100 millions dollars with total buy-ins. satellites should be beautifully organized and after that this success will be good. Good luck mobsters.

 roeish320/06/2020 12:59:00 GMT
It depends on the satellite structure. Is they will have tons of satellites for this tournaments there might be many players. Don't think too many players will pay the initial cost. That's only possible for pro players or really rich players can do that.
By the way, think that I would watch that tournament is they play it live.
 damosk20/06/2020 14:27:40 GMT
It was always going to happen somewhere and this is happening at PartyPoker who have had some great promotional tournaments lately, but the one problem they have is they keep losing the site and especially when big tournaments are taking place which causes much angst to many players and doesn’t help their reputation. I hope it all goes well and a mobster gets some reward from it. Is BRM doing any monster only satellites???????????
 CALICUL20/06/2020 15:03:37 GMT
In the past in another poker room were beautiful series with 60 millions dollars prizes guaranteed. Party Poker is doing something exceptional here and will be in the forefront. If you are an ambitious players, u will try satellites for qualification(s).
