The WPT World Online Championships is back on partypoker, and any player with any bankroll amount has the chance to become the next WPT champion!
The Season XIX WPT World Online Championships runs from August 13 to September 15.
A $5,000,000 guarantee is featured in the WPT Main Event. The tournament is going to be a 4-day event, with starting flights running on three consecutive Sundays, starting from August 29. Day 2 will be on September 13, while Day 3 takes place the next day, and the final table plays out on September 15 - the last day of the series.
One of the best things that make the WPT Main Event a special opportunity for partypoker players is that they can qualify for only a single cent, with centrolls running throughout the day and satellite finals held every Sunday.
The $0.01 buy-in satellites award at least 15 tickets to the $4.40 buy-in Phase 1. Players who make their way through that stage goes into the $22 buy-in Phase 2, followed by the $109 Phase 3. This leads to the weekly final, where 20 WPT Main Event Day 1A tickets are waiting to be won.
In 2020, it was Phil Mighall who became the inaugural champion of the WPT World Online Championships Main Event, outlasting a field of 1,011 players to win a whopping $1,550,298.47!
Value-Packed WPT Pro Hunt Event
Team partypoker pros and other known names will compete in the WPT Pro Hunt progressive knockout (PKO) tournament that is scheduled on the first day of the series.
Players can compete for their share of a guaranteed $30,000 for a buy-in of only $33.
About 20% of the prize pool shall be donated to a charity.
All confirmed Team partypoker pros who will participate are Courtney Gee, Jaime Staples, Joao Simao, Joni Jouhkimainen, Mikita Badziakouski and Patrick Leonard.
Should a player manage to eliminate a Team partypoker pro, they get to win special bounty prizes, including $109 tickets to a satellite final for the WPT Main Event. The tournament's champion enters the WPT Main Event automatically!
Team partypoker pro Patrick Leonard said, "The WPT World Online Championships are back, and I can't wait to play. The WPT Main Event should be a great tournament with satellites running now. I'll be in the mix for the WPT Pro Hunt again, too, with satellite tickets being given away for knocking partypoker pros out, so there will be loads of chances to get yourself into the WPT Main Event."
More WPT World Online Championships events shall be unveiled soon.
