Partypoker Powers Up WPT Online Series With Robust Schedule, $3M Championship

The World Poker Tour is coming to partypoker and the site released the official schedule on Tuesday. The WPT Online Series runs May 14 to June 2 with plenty of action and tournaments for every bankroll.

The series once again promises players a shot at WPT glory. The $3,200 WPT Main Event highlights the series and is scheduled to kick off on May 23. The championship features a $3 million guarantee and concludes on June 2.

The WPT Main Event winner will have his or her name engraved on the Mike Sexton WPT Champions Cup. The champion also receives a replica of the trophy and a Hublot watch.

“The inaugural WPT Online Series back in 2020 was the first purposely-designed WPT festival to be run fully online at partypoker and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to do this all over again,” partypoker’s head of poker room management Chris Donnachie said in a news release.

Some highlights from the partypoker WPT Online

WPT Online kicks off with plenty of excitement. Players have a chance to win a main event seat by beating Team partypoker pros in the $33 Pro Hunt.

The unique tournament runs on the first day of the series. Entrants can win main event satellite tickets by eliminating partypoker pros. Those expected to be in the field include:

  • Patrick Leonard
  • Mikita Bodyakovskiy
  • Kristen Bicknell
  • Jaime Staples
  • Joao Simao
  • Dzmitry Urbanovich
  • Joni Jouhkimainen
  • Louise Butler
  • Dayane Kotoviezy
  • Matt Staples
  • Monika Zukowicz
  • Courtney Gee
  • Jordan Banfield
  • Jeffrey Johnson (MaximusBlack)

The winner of the event earns a $3,200 Main Event seat and a trophy. Beyond that, players will also find numerous other events with buy-ins starting at just $10. The series features “micro” and “mini” versions of most tournaments.

Players will also find some nice value with two WPT500 events. The $530 WPT500 Knockout runs May 17-25 with nine starting flights and $1 million guarantee.

Another WPT500 runs May 24 to June 1 with the same guarantee, buy-in, and number of starting flights.

Fans of Pot Limit Omaha are also in luck with WPT Online. Several events in this format are part of the schedule. The $1,575 Omaha Knockout highlights those and runs May 16-18 with a guarantee of $250,000.

Qualifiers for all bankrolls

Partypoker again has included satellite events offering every level of player a shot to qualify for the main event. Players can attempt to qualify for just $0.01 with “centrolls” running daily.

Those events feed into a $3.30 Phase 1, followed by a $33 Phase 2, before the weekly Sunday final. There are also $320 mega satellites running on Day 1A (May 23) and 1B (May 30).

Mega satellites for the Mini Main Event are set for days 1A and 1B (May 15-16) with a $55 buy-in. Members of Team partypoker are ready to get in the WPT action.

“I can’t wait for the WPT Online Series to kick off this week,” Kristen Bicknell said. “To start with, you can have a go at knocking out us partypoker pros and some other guests in the WPT Pro Hunt, which should be a really fun event.

“After that, I’m particularly looking forward to the WPT Main Event, as I always feel it would be so special to take it down. partypoker and WPT as always have designed the schedule so everyone can get involved, particularly with the satellites, so I hope to see lots of you at the tables.”

Here’s a look at the complete schedule.
