Two Big Championship Events With $1M Guarantees Highlight Partypoker WPT500 Schedule

The World Poker Tour is once again returning to partypoker. The WPT500 is the tour’s lower buy-in series and the upcoming online version offers plenty of bang for the buck.

Players will find 25 events running March 7-23, this time with two championship events – each featuring $1 million guaranteed. Beyond those, there are also events planned for all bankrolls with buy-ins ranging from $50 to $5,000.

The series offers just the latest opportunity for online poker players to win a slice of WPT glory at partypoker.

“The WPT500 brand is synonymous with huge prize pools, an accessible buy-in and that coveted WPT title, so it’s the perfect addition to the 2021 online calendar,” partypoker head of poker room management Chris Donnachie said in a news release.

Highlights of the WPT500 series at partypoker

The partypoker WPT500 series jumps straight to the high-profile action right from the start. Day 1A of the $530 Eight-Max kicks off the series on March 7 with $1 million guaranteed.

With nine starting flights planned, there are plenty of opportunities for players to participate in. Day 2 is set for March 15 with the final table playing out the following day.

That will be streamed live on partypoker’s Twitch channel with commentary provided in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Russian.

Last year’s WPT500 ended in a four-handed deal with Fabio Sperling claiming the top prize of $281,125. Now players have twice the opportunities to win a WPT500 championship.

“This year’s series follows the success of the first ever online WPT500 back in May 2020, which saw as many as 4,828 entries into the tournament,” Donnachie said. “We’re excited to be doubling down on the event this time round, running both regular and knockout versions of the tournament.”

This year, the schedule’s focus shifts to the progressive knockout (PKO) format on March 15. That date brings the start of the $530 WPT500 Eight-Max PKO with a $1 million guarantee.

Players will find eight starting flights before Day 2 runs on March 22 and the final table on March 23.

A PKO event is a twist on a traditional bounty tournament. Once a player knocks another player out, the winner banks only a portion of the bounty. The other portion is added to the winning player’s bounty.

This makes for some unique fun as players see bounty values rise throughout the tournament. The events have become popular and the WPT500 offers several of these for players getting in the action.

A look at the partypoker side events 

The rest of the schedule offers something for everyone including Six-Max, Seven-Max, Eight-Max, Mix-Max, and other PKO events.

The $55 Super50 Knockout kicks off on March 7 with a $400,000 guaranteed prize pool. The eight-max three-day PKO tournament features eight starting flights with the final day set for March 16. Day 2 plays out on March 22 with the final table on March 23.

Players with larger bankrolls may want to check out the $3,200 High Roller. That event begins March 9 and has a $250,000 guaranteed prize pool. Here’s a look at the complete schedule.

Plenty of Main Event opportunities at partypoker

Partypoker has worked to include players of all levels in major series in recent years. That has included some major success stories in some of its recent series with satellite opportunities beginning at just $0.01.

For the Main Event, these “centrolls” feed into the $5.50 Phase 1 qualifiers. Those are followed by $55 Phase 2 events and culminate with the $530 Sunday final.

Several players have already scored Main Event tickets via this route. Christian Galvan progressed through these stages before finishing off the Sunday final to earn a Main Event seat.

In another Sunday final, Emanuel Botoc, Leonard Modder, and Jeffrey Mulder all managed to qualify. These players earned their spots through $5.50 satellites. Douglas Ferreira makes his way into the Main Event after buying into a $55 satellite.

More qualifying chances in big buy-in events

Players have numerous qualifying chances beyond just the Main Event. The centroll action continues for other events as well.

The $25,500 Super High Rollers come with a $1 million prize pool guarantee per event. On Feb. 22, players can win four seats feeding into the Six-Max Super High Roller on Feb. 23. Three more seats are up for grabs on March 1.

The $25,000 Seven-Max Super High Roller with a $1 million guarantee then runs March 2. These satellites have no direct buy-in for the final, meaning the maximum a player can pay to win a seat is $265.

In the $10,300 High Roller, players will also find a $1 million guarantee with the two-day event running March 7. A mega satellite awards 20 seats on the same day.

Players can even earn a bargain entry in the $102,000 Mega High Roller with a $3 million guarantee. Five seats are on the line when Day 1 kicks off on March 8.

There is no direct buy-in to the satellite final for this event. The maximum a player will spend to win a seat into the daily Phase 2 qualifiers is $1,050. Here’s a ook at the complete series schedule.

Partypoker MyGame ‘Whiz’ Aims to Help Players Improve, Attract New Players to Game

Partypoker is hoping to help online poker players make fewer mistakes and improve their game with the recent release of MyGame Whiz.

What player hasn’t made a mistake at the table and wished things had gone differently? Partypoker is hoping to help online poker players make fewer mistakes and improve their game with the recent release of MyGame Whiz.

The new feature is an enhancement of the MyGame tool with the goal of helping players boost their poker skills. MyGame Whiz is a poker personal trainer, helping players to hopefully reach a higher level and avoid common errors.

That includes one-on-one communication for a truly personalized experience. Partypoker developers hope this gives players the chance to have more fun and find more success.

“Whiz studies your game style, including each hand and how you play,” partypoker marketing director Vadim Soloveychik told PokerScout.

“Whiz will only assess your own hand history and will not study hands played by opponents. It then uses your personal hand history to create tips and suggestions on how to improve and the overall strategy the player needs to consider.”

How does partypoker’s MyGame Whiz work?

Whiz simplifies MyGame into a small, clean, intuitive package, offering key pieces of advice and targeted messages in real time at the end of a hand after important moments; both winning and losing.

Players receive messages targeted specifically at them based on actions at the table. Not all players will be sent the same messages. Whiz also offers interactive commentary as a player competes. 

The feature also allows players to replay, save, and share hands. The more hands played, the better the advice Whiz can give based on a wider range of situations.

Players can ask MyGame Whiz questions as well. It’s an easy platform for working on skills and learning how to maximize a player’s style.

“Whether a player likes to play aggressively or play tight, whether they are starting with a large or small bankroll,” Soloveychik says, “or even if they are still trying to work out the basics of the game, Whiz will be able to work out the right strategy for that individual player.”

Reachomg out to new online players with personalized learning experience

In recent years, partypoker has worked to increase the number of recreational players entering the online poker player pool. That’s ranged from numerous low-cost major tournament qualifiers to more mobile and social gaming aspects in the platform.

Party now hopes MyGame Whiz adds to those efforts. Major barriers to entry for new players, the company notes, is fear of not understanding the game, losing to pros, and underperforming. 

Whiz seeks to combat these issues with instant feedback. The application is a dynamic tool that works for each player in their own individual way.

“Even the most experienced and successful players had to start somewhere, and we want poker to be an inclusive game,” Soloveychik says.

“That’s why we decided to create something that would help players at the beginning of their poker journey, when they are less familiar with the experience of playing online poker. We want to remove any fear new players may have regarding their skill level and knowledge.”

In essence, Whiz functions as a poker tutor. There are even report cards to help a player track his or her progress.

Soloveychik said the application can help inexperienced players who may have less time to study to improve. New players can gain confidence in the early stages of their poker journey by seeing real analysis by actually playing.

“This is based on extensive player feedback, where players have often told us they feel they might be out of their comfort zone when they first start to play the game,” Soloveychik says.

“Whiz changes that with easy to use, bespoke poker training, eliminating the uncertainty and helping you learn the game and strategy behind it in a faster and easier way.”

A long term partypoker learning tool

With so many bells and whistles, party developers hope players can utilize the feature over a lengthy period of time. Whiz allows players to continually gauge their own play and adjust accordingly.

The MyGame feature already allowed players to see their rankings based on game theory optimization (GTO) in the form of seven levels:

  • Rookie
  • Social
  • Intermediate
  • Solid
  • Advanced
  • Pro
  • Elite Pro

The addition of Whiz is meant to build on that component. The company already has plans to add new features, including social sharing and additional missions. So far, the feature is only available on the software client and not on mobile.

Soloveychik says the company received “overwhelmingly positive feedback” during Whiz’s testing phase. Party plans to continually improve and expand the tips and learning as well as add more animations.

“There are no limits to how players can continue to test themselves, complete missions, and learn tips and tricks, all based on their own gameplay,” Soloveychik says. “This is no ordinary one-size-fits-all tutor; this is bespoke poker tutor training straight from the Whiz to you.

“This ensures the player strides into their next poker game with their head held high and they will be ready to play. We can’t wait for players all over the world to try Whiz for themselves and become the poker player they were born to be.”

After record-breaking prize pools in two previous editions, partypoker’s MILLIONS Online returns in February. The festival runs Feb. 13 to March 9 with 28 events and features $17.55 million guaranteed.

Partypoker is also again making it easy for players of every bankroll to get in the action with numerous satellites. There should be plenty of action for all kinds of players.

“We’re extremely proud to be hosting yet another online leg of the world-renowned MILLIONS tour,” partypoker’s head of poker room management Chris Donnachie said in a news release.

Partypoker ramping up MILLIONS qualifying opportunities again

Once again, partypoker is hoping to provide MILLIONS opportunities to players of all levels. In 2018, “Scarmak3r” showed exactly how lower buy-ins can turn into large prizes.

Scarmak3r banked $1.4 million after qualifying for just $5.50 and then finishing third in the Main Event.

Satellites feeding into the series are ongoing with 10 Main Event seats guaranteed this Sunday. More satellites will also be added before the start of the tournament.

Players can qualify for the Main Event for as little as $0.01 with centrolls running multiple times daily. These events feed into $5.50 satellites and then a $55 phase, which leads to the Sunday final. There isn’t a direct buy-in into the final, so no player qualifying in this route will spend more than $55.

UK-based Christian Galvan has already scored big via qualifiers. After placing first in the centroll, $5.50, and $55 stages, he finished fifth in last Sunday’s final for a Main Event seat.

“One of my favorite things about poker is the zero-to-hero stories we hear on a regular basis,” Team partypoker’s Patrick Leonard said. “When I started playing, somebody would qualify for a $5,000 event from a $1,000 satellite and it was a great story when they went on to the final table.

“Recently, at partypoker, we’ve seen numerous people qualify for huge events for as little as a penny and win life-changing amounts. MILLIONS Online is always an amazing tournament and any player with a bankroll of $0.01 or more should get ready.”

A look at the WPT championship at partypoker

The Main Event was the highlight of WPT Montreal Online, which began on Jan. 17 with 24 events. The annual series was shifted online due to COVID-19. Montreal’s Playground Poker Club has been closed since Oct. 4.

The Main Event officially finished on Jan. 27. When Dan Shak busted out third for $212,458, Hardcastle and Lebanon’s Rayan Chamas battled heads-up for the title.

Hardcastle held almost a 2-to-1 chip advantage. The win was sealed when he called a triple-barrel bluff by Chamas.

When the hands were revealed, Hardcastle tabled two pairs to Chamas’ King high. Chamas banked $308,703 for his runner-up finish.

Daniel Dvoress wins Sexton Classic charity event

The $10,300 Mike Sexton Classic was another popular event on the schedule and concluded on Monday. Canada’s Daniel Dvoress took down the title to win $294,346.

The tournament also included a charity element, with $39,900 raised for a nice cause in the process. The $300 registration fee from each buy-in was donated to the Nevada Partnership Homeless Youth (NPHY) Charity.

The group aims to end youth homelessness in southern Nevada and was chosen specifically by Sexton’s family. 

The Sexton Classic ran across two days and comfortably beat the $1 million guarantee. The tournament attracted 125 players and a $1.3 prize pool.

A total of 20 players qualified for the second day of action, eventually leaving Dvoress heads-up against Aram Zobian. Despite Zobian holding a lead of 3 million chips, Dvoress turned the tide and battled back.

The final hand saw Dvoress hit a back-door straight on the river to top Zobian’s pair of queens. Zobian won $200,307 for runner-up.

Partypoker’s Twitch channel streamed live coverage of the final table. Hardcastle joined James Dempsey and Henry Kilbane to provide commentary.

The event featured Team partypoker’s Isaac Haxton, Patrick Leonard, and Joni Jouhkimainen. Other big names playing included Niklas Astedt, Michael Addamo, and Benjamin Rolle.

Other WPT Montreal winners 

There were plenty of other standout moments in the series. Addamo added another major buy-in win to his resumé. The Australian took down the Super High Roller for $450,076.

A couple of players from the Netherlands found the winner’s circle. In the Six-Max High Roller, Jelle Moene finished first and took top prize of $80,981. Tom Talboom won the Mini Main Event for $42,052

In the Micro Main Event, Thomas Clucas claimed the top prize for $7,686.

The WPT Montreal Main Event features a $2 million guarantee.

The month of January brings even more World Poker Tour action to partypoker. The WPT Montral kicks off Jan. 17 and runs through Feb. 1 with numerous six- and seven-figure guarantees.

The newly-released schedule includes a $3,200 Main Event with $2 million guaranteed to kick off the series. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the series has moved online with plenty of action awaiting online poker players around the world.

“The WPT Montreal Online schedule features events for players of all bankrolls,” WPT  Europe Vice President Hermance Blum said in a news release. “Another WPT Champion will be made on partypoker and we are thrilled to, once again, honor the memory of Mike Sexton by bringing the event where he won his WPT title online.”

A complete WPT Montreal Main Event experience

As has been the case with other online WPT partypoker events, players can expect a full tour experience. At least the best that can be expected in an online poker environment.

Some big rewards are in store for the champion. Along with a huge cash prize, the champion earns:

  • a $15,000 seat to the next WPT Tournament of Champions (presented by Baccarat Crystal)
  • a $2,500 Tournament of Champions travel package
  • name engraved on the Mike Sexton WPT Champions Cup
  • a replica of the Sexton Cup
  • points in the Hublot Player of the Year race

To replicate the live poker experience, the Main Event champion will also walk away with a WPT Montreal championship belt. This has become the signature trophy presented by Playground Poker Club, the host venue for the annual live series.

The final table is also expected to be live streamed for poker fans as have previous WPT partypoker events. The first flight of the Main Event begins the series on Jan. 17. A $320 mega satellite scheduled for the same day, awarding at least 50 seats.

The second Main Event flight is set for Jan. 24. That will be followed by two further days of action on Jan. 25 and 26. The final table will then play out on Jan. 27.

There will also be mini and micro versions of the Main Event. The $320 Mini comes with a $200,000 guarantee and the $33 Micro guarantees $30,000.

Some additional WPT Montreal highlights

With 24 events, the WPT Montreal offers something for all player types. A one-day No Limit Hold’em event will be held every night of the series.

The schedule also includes eight high roller events, including the $25,500 Super High Roller with a $1 million guarantee. As in the Main Event, players will also find mini versions of several events. Here’s a look at a few other highlights:

  • $530 Omaha Knockout (Event 2, Jan. 20) – $50,000 guarantee
  • $55 Mini Omaha Knockout (Event 2, Jan. 20) – $15,000 guarantee
  • $1,050 Montreal Masters (Event 7, Jan. 22) – $500,000 guarantee
  • $1,600 Second Chance Turbo (Event 13, Jan. 25) – $100,000 guarantee
  • $162 Six-Max Turbo (Event 16, Jan. 27) – $20,000 guarantee
  • $530 Playground Closer (Event 20, Jan. 29) – $250,000 guarantee

A special addition this year is the $10,300 Mike Sexton Classic, running the final two days of the festival. The tournament features $1 million guaranteed and each $300 registration fee is donated to the Nevada Partnership Homeless Youth (NPHY) charity.

Mike Sexton celebrates after winning the WPT Montreal in 2016.

The group aims to end youth homelessness in southern Nevada and was been chosen specifically by Sexton’s family. Sexton won the WPT Montreal in 2016 for $317,896.

A phased satellite program will feed into the tournament, starting on Jan. 24. Players can buy into phase events for as little as $0.01. This allows players of all bankrolls a chance to land a seat in the tournament. Here’ a look at the complete series:

Partypoker KO Series Making Holiday Season a Knockout

The partypoker KO Series begins Dec. 25 and runs through Jan. 16.

There are some extra reasons for online poker players to party this holiday season. Partypoker has launched a new KO Series just in time for Christmas and New Year to kick off 2021.

The festival begins on Christmas Day, Dec. 25, and runs through Jan. 19 with 23 events. The series gives players of all levels a chance at success, with mini and micro versions of all events.

“KO Series of the past have seen us packing the schedule full of quality events at multiple times per day,” partypoker head of poker room management Chris Donnachie said.

“This time around, we wanted to focus less on volume and even more on quality, hence why the number of key events has reduced significantly compared to past editions.”

What’s partypoker have planned for the holidays?

All KO Series tournaments will be played in a progressive knockout (PKO) format. These tournaments are slightly different than typical bounty tournaments.

In a PKO, a player eliminating another player only receives a portion of that player’s bounty. The other portion is added to the winning player’s bounty.

That can make for some big knockout totals later in the tournament. PKOs are a fun twist to a typical bounty tournament.

Partypoker officials have also worked to make this series even more popular with recreational players.

“Most events are scheduled to play in multi-day or multi-flight formats, which allows us to offer better structures but with the added advantage of player-friendly earlier finishing times,” Donnachie said.

“Re-entries have also been limited to a maximum of one on most events, which is in line with our continued efforts to level the playing field.”

A look at the KO Series highlights

Players will have plenty of options when it comes to the KO Series with buy-ins ranging from $2 to $2,000. Players can end Christmas Day with any of three versions of the Christmas Opener.

The $215 high buy-in features a $250,000 guarantee. Those with lower bankrolls will find buy-ins of $2.20 and $22 for the micro and mini versions. 

The New Year Kick Off on Jan. 1 also offers a nice way to start off 2021 in style. The $320 high edition comes with a $300,000 guarantee. There are also $3.30 and $33 micro and mini versions.

The $1,050 Main Event will be a three-day tournament and will begin on Jan. 16 with a $1 million guarantee. The event crowns a champion on the final day of the festival. 

There will also be mini and micro editions of the tournament and here’s a look at the complete schedule.

Irish Open Online Returns to Partypoker in March; Will Kassouf Scores Main Event Title

The Irish Open Online is coming to partypoker in March.

The Irish Open Online returns in March following the success of the inaugural edition earlier in 2020, partypoker announced last week. A familiar name also rose to the top in the Irish Poker Masters Online, which wrapped up on Dec. 18.

Will Kassouf, known for his “speech play” during his deep run in the 2016 World Series of Poker Main Event, turned a satellite entry into a Irish Open Main Event championship. Players now won’t have to wait too long to get back in the Irish poker action.

What to expect from the 2021 Irish Open Online at partypoker?

The next Irish Open Online begins March 29 and features a Main Event with a €1 million guarantee. The recent Irish Poker Masters featured 21 events with several event variations including Pot Limit Omaha, PKO, heads-up, turbo, and more.

Players can probably expect similar events. With an online poker boom underway, that schedule may even be expanded. 

The 2020 live series paid out €5.6 million with Brazil’s Pablo Brito Silva claiming the Main Event title for €462,100. He topped a field of 2,945 and was one of 22 champions in the series.

Partypoker and Irish Poker Open organizers are currently looking into potential alternative dates to host the live festival in 2021. The festival is Europe’s longest-running poker series.

“We all miss live poker action and we are looking forward to the time when all of us can experience the buzz and the thrill of the Irish Poker Open in a live setting,” partypoker marketing director Vadim Soloveychik said.

“Meanwhile, we are excited about the opportunity to once again host the Irish Open Online in the coming spring and we hope Irish Poker Open fans will enjoy it.”

Will Kassouf turns €109 satellite into Irish Poker Masters Main Event title

In taking the December Irish Masters Main Event title, Kassouf outlasted 1,340 opponents in the €1,100 buy-in tournament. The British poker star won his seat via a €109 satellite and turned that into €215,163.

Manuel Ruivo finished runner-up for €148,042 and also recently found big success in the WSOP Main Event at GGPoker. He finished third in the GG half of that event for $728,177.

When heads-up play commenced, Ruivo held a massive chip lead over Kassouf – 213,940,000 to 54,260. Kassouf managed to draw level, however, and the two battled back and forth before he claimed the title.

It was an unlikely finish as Kassouf began the day as one of the short stacks.

Other big names score in High Roller

The €2,100 High Roller attracted quite a few major names to the player pool. Dominik Nitsche, Evaldas Aniulis, Jans Arends, and Vlad Lache all cashed in the event.

The UK’s Jonathan Proudfoot beat Elio Fox heads-up to claim first prize of €40,206

Team partypoker’s Kristen Bicknell took third for €16,297. The event attracted a field of 67 players.
