The inaugural $100M GTD WPT World Online Championships is just a week away, and partypoker has once again made things even spicier by introducing two big leaderboards with a $100,000 prize.
$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
Two massive leaderboards run throughout the WPT World Online Championships and promise to award $100,000! You can compete for prizes on both leaderboards: the WPT Player of the Championship and WPT Rising Star.
WPT Rising Star
If you can't play or satellite into the $300+ buy-in WPT World Online Championships tournaments, don't worry because partypoker has thoughtfully created a second leaderboard for lower stakes grinders.
WPT Rising Star leaderboard guarantees $25,000 across 10 paid places, with $10,000 reserved for the top winner.
To earn leaderboard points, simply compete in any WPT World Online Championships tournament with a buy-in of $300 or less.
Points will be awarded based on your position, buy-in, and the number of entrants. You will only earn points if you finish in the money!
Only your 10 best ‘scores' will count towards the leaderboard, so even if you can't play dozens of tournaments, you can still win big!
Every player has a shot at winning additional prize money...and the top winner will also be forever known as online poker's first ever WPT Rising Star!
Take a look at the list of payouts below...
Replicate an Authentic Live Poker Experience
The WPT World Online Championships is designed to replicate an authentic live poker experience. How? All the real names of players will be used at the tables and there will be a max of two Day 1s for the 12 championship events in the series, with a max of 1 re-entry allowed. All championship event winners will be entered into the exclusive WPT Champions Club.
Team partypoker's Kristen Bicknell said: "It's fantastic that partypoker is making the series accessible to all players through the Mini and Micro versions of each and the satellite program. It really gives everyone a chance to qualify and have a shot at these huge events and winning their place in the prestigious WPT Tournament of Champions."
Team partypoker's Patrick Leonard said: "The mega satellites for each headline event will be a great way to give players of all bankrolls a chance at competing in this massive series in the biggest events. It's such an exciting series with a focus on providing tournaments of the highest standard and a quality experience, so it's great that partypoker is making it accessible from $3.30 satellites. I can't wait for it to start!"
