All the final tables of 12 championship events will be streamed live at partypoker!
The WPT World Online Championships, designed to replicate an authentic live poker experience, is scheduled from July 17 (Friday) to September 8 (Tuesday), paying out a minimum guarantee of $100 million.
The inaugural championship event will present a new level of online tournament streaming to fans, with final table sessions being shown live on:
partypoker is teaming up with ShareHand, the production partner for live tours including WPT events and partypoker MILLIONS, to provide an experience as close as possible to watching a live series, while making sure the core elements of online poker are not disrupted.
The final tables of all 12 championship events shall be streamed live, where there will be giveaways of tournament tickets to give all aspiring players a shot at joining the action. All final tables will feature cards up on a short delay. The real names of all final table players will be shown on screen to replicate a live WPT final table.
Commentary for these events shall be presented by notable poker personalities, including Mike Sexton, James Dempsey, Matt Savage, Joey Ingram, Vince Van Patten and Tony Dunst. They will be joined by a few guest commentators from Team partypoker including Sam Trickett, Jason Koon, Isaac Haxton, Ludovic Geilich, and Roberto Romanello. WPT Executive Tour Director Matt Savage will be the lead commentator for the five WPT Champions Cup events, including the WPT World Championship Online.
Side event streaming coverage with Henry Kilbane and James Dempsey will be shown on partypokerTV two to four times per week during the festival, using the partypoker replayer cards up system.
Commentary for all streams will be available in English and several other languages, including: Russian commentary with Dmitry Shakhov and Ilya Gorodetskiy; German commentary with Stefan Hachmeister and Christian Gross; Latin Spanish commentary with Gaston Catzman and Santiago Garcia; and Portuguese commentary with Marcos Sketch and Thiago Crema De Macedo.
Streaming the WPT World Online Championships is just one way the online series bears similarities with a live series. There will be a max of two Day 1s for the 12 championship events in the series, with a max of one re-entry allowed. The winners of the five WPT Champions Cup events will be entered into the WPT Champions Club.
Team partypoker pro Mike Sexton said, "The WPT World Online Championships is special for so many reasons. There's only one re-entry per event, massive prize pool guarantees and players will be using real names. You will also have numerous opportunities to satellite into all these events. Give it a go and good luck. I hope to see you on a final table where I'll be commentating!"
so every players who love to watch live poker tournaments will enjoy in all of this 12 live tournaments and lot of hours of poker!its good to see that they will offer to watch stream on 4 ways and its up to everyone to choose what is best way to watch it and not to skip anything!
Well, I would like to see it. I love to see professional players playing between them, I ever can learn something there. But with one condition: I have to see the cards! The others streams that we could see here, in the news, was tournaments without seen the cards, and that´s not good, I can´t learn anything, only suposed moves
I like this idea because it is extremely important to follow real players, as they choose certain strategies to win very important major tournaments. Sometimes you can write on a notebook certain information that will help you in future to have some success. Good job Party Poker.
I´m agree with you CALICUL, I could learn too much seeing professional players playing between them. But I think that is impossible to do it if the game is not podt edited or be playing in a special mode, and we could see the cards. If it is not, you only can see some showdown and little more else. Have no sense for me!
It will be great that Partypoker will stream online these games , from this very importsnt series of tournaments that will be played these games , the WPT World Online Championship , withthe awesome total prizepool of $100M guaranteed , and the many sattelites to get your ticket for these precious games . Players will have the chance to watch the action at the tables from the 12 championship events
Is here someone who can be seating looking a tournament for one hour or more, that only could see the faces of the players and some showdown at several times? How many showdown could we see in a professional game, 20 % of the hands? Nobody is worried that the stream don´t show the cards? Maybe my problem, I understand, but I miss the old videos of Pokerstars!
when I was younger and when poker was in big expansion,I watched live tournaments and played in same time,but now even when I have time for it,I have better things to do or I will just gamble on casino games!its not for me anymore,but I am glad that they offer lot of streams that people can watch!
Maragatero, my friend a few years ago when i was playing in Full Tilt the BankrollMob's freerolls tournaments for Leaderboards i had a period where watched some final tables in Pokerstars. After that better results were for me but everything is to play properly...
But you could understand the playing if the stream doesn´t shows the cards? I need, at least, to see the hero hand. So, I could understand the hero strategy, like every learning videos. If not, I don´t understand what is the matter. I never think that exist videos that are without this. Have no sense for me. But here, in other news in the past, were some videos of that type
They will be streamed online in various ways and channels , partypoker tv , facebook , youtube , and ofcourse the twitch platform which is my favorite . I see many commentators and special guests , who will participate in these streams , so as to bring the action to the players . I saw Joey Ingram , who is my favorite , I will be happy o watch his commentary during these scheduled streams
you can see cards live only if stream is with some delay of 10 minutes or something like that,because then everybody could react and somewhove to see on smartphones,thats why they have delay on live stream or if its live,that you cant see cards from players!thats whole story!
You must to understand that: in Holdem Pkr. need to read the players, make many bluffs but also a lot of raises... to win hands. Watch those videos because Party Poker shows events from several tournaments and you can learn a lot.
Is there something more bore than stay looking the "Tells" of the players (only the tells that could be showes by the cam) by several hours? Have no sense! I would be in a lobby, drinking and chatting with friends to accompany a fellow who is playing a tournament. But seeing that by video, no thanks! And I understand dule-vu that is necesary make a delay to show it. Even a big delay
You have to risk at least a few days of your life to follow some methods of professional players. We can't talk now about how much will learn, but u will realize after that and there will probably be self-satisfaction. Good luck, my friend.
This is the biggest event of the summer , so many casual players , regs , pros , wait to play on these events , with the huge guarantees . It's cool that they will stream these events , with commentary , special guests , areal show for everyone , either they play on these games or not . They will have commentary also in some other languages , besides English , very nice from Partypoker
There will always be players of all levels, because where is money and you have the opportunity to win, will have to try without thinking. I can not to dream that maybe in one day i will be able to qualify for a big live tournament.
During the great lockdown , the poker streams saw a very big viewers' number , willing to spend time watching poker events , or even streams of events from the past , with new commentary .Even now there are many who want to watcch these streams , nice innitiative by Partypoker , to stream these WPT events , and with all these stars , commenators , all this very organised .
Party Poker want to make everything more attractive to advantage of people and for that they will organze more good things in benefit of players and fans. Streaming is a good idea. Acceptance of television as well. Nice job, of course.
Party Poker does many good things for their own good and did not forget about their customers. Ideas from the last 2-3 years have raised this room in a very good place compared to many other competitors in that industry. Good job PP.
