“We’ve taken this on board and to celebrate International Women’s Day as one day in many where we want to engage and improve, we’ve given our female players an extra opportunity to win their way to one of our most loved events. Rewarding and giving opportunities to our communities is something we’re passionate about, and this is just one moment in which we plan to do so, with plenty more to come.”

The $25 International Women’s Day Bounty Celebration plays out tonight with a $50,000 guarantee.

The event allows the site to recognize women in the game. GG has also run freerolls over the last week for entries into the tournament.

WPT highlights women’s organizations

The World Poker Tour is also getting in the act for International Women’s Day. The company is spotlighting four organizations advocating for women in poker including:

  • Ladies International Poker Series (LIPS)
  • Poker League of Nations (PLoN)
  • Poker Power
  • Women’s Poker Association (WPA)

LIPS is a nonprofit organization providing greater access to poker for women through live events across the United States.

“LIPS is the first poker tour established for women and expands the game of poker through live and online events across the US,” founder Lupe Soto said.

Poker League of Nations works to increase the participation of women in poker. The organization runs special events, staking opportunities, and an active online community

“Our community welcomes all who are aligned with our goal of empowering women through the game of poker,” CEO and founder Lena Evans said. “We aim to make women more confident in all facets of life through honing the skills necessary to be successful at the poker table”

Reaching out to players

Poker Power focuses on the connection between lessons present in the game and real-life application.

“Our organizations share a commitment to bring more women to the table and to empower them with game-changing skills,” Poker Power general manager Erin Lydon said.

“The power of poker is that by playing a game of strategy, we learn to master the game of leadership. As more women learn and play, the impact will be transformational for generations to come. It’s time to stop playing not to lose and start playing to win.” 

The WPA advocates for women in the poker industry by increasing the exposure of current female poker players. The group also hopes to foster new women players in the game. 

“It’s crucial that women, at any stage of their poker journey, always feel welcomed and supported, plus know what resources are available to them within the poker community,” WPA Vice President Tara Windsor-Smith said.

“Through strategic and thoughtful partnerships within the poker industry and purposeful WPA programs, we continue to bring awareness to women in poker within our industry.”

World Poker Tour Launches ‘WPT Prime’ to Replace DeepStacks; Three Stops Heading to Asia

The WPT has announced the launch of WPT Prime to take the place of the WPTDeepStacks. The tour has announced three new Asian stops.

Some big changes have come to the World Poker Tour as the series launches its 20th anniversary season. That included the company announcing a rebrand of the mid-major WPTDeepStacks (WPTDS) on Tuesday.

With that tour’s demise comes the launch of WPT Prime. The new brand “pairs the premier poker tournament experience of a WPT Main Tour stop with affordable buy-ins accessible to more players around the globe,” the company noted in a news release.

What is WPT Prime?

Like WPTDS, Prime allows the tour to reach players with more modest bankrolls. However, the tour appears to be offering these players a more ramped-up experience they might see at a Main Tour event. Some of what Prime players can expect include:

  • the use of action clocks
  • winner trophies
  • in-depth event coverage from the WPT digital content team

Prime events also count toward the Player of the Year leaderboard, which awards $30,000 in prizes. Company senior director of global tour management Cathy Zhao oversaw the transition to Prime.

“Our continued efforts to improve the WPT live tournament experience will benefit more players than ever during Season XX,” Zhao said in a news release.

“WPT Prime is the embodiment of our goal to provide the best possible poker tournament experience to players everywhere, and our strong relationships with our global partners will elevate the WPT experience around the world.”

DeepStacks Tour retired, Asian events planned

The DeepStacks Tour launched in 2014 and was acquired by the WPT in 2017. WPTDS as a brand will now be retired in mid-2022 following the conclusion of events in Amsterdam, Sydney, and Thunder Valley.

WPT Prime then debuts with three of events in Asia. Players can look for some of the first events in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Taiwan. 

“In celebration of our 20-year anniversary, we are thrilled to be able to deliver the high-quality WPT Prime experience in the Asia-Pacific region,” Vice President of Global Tour Management Angelica Hael said.

“As we announce more of our Season XX events around the world after a tumultuous period, we are absolutely delighted to be back in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Taiwan.”

A look at the stops in Asia

The first stop for the new brand is in Vietnam at the Crown Poker Club in Hanoi from May 19-30. The series is headlined by the VND25,000,000 ($1,100) main event from May 26-30.

Prime Cambodia then runs Aug. 11-23 in partnership with Connaissance Management Group at the NagaWorld Integrated Resort in Phnom Penh. The $1,100 main event runs from Aug. 18-22.

WPT hosted the largest live poker tournament in Cambodia in November 2019. The $727,500 prize pool nearly tripled the $250,000 guarantee. 

Taiwan is the next WPT Prime Asian stop and hosted by the Chinese Texas Hold’em Poker Association in Taipei from Nov. 11-21. The TWD30,000 ($1,077 USD) main event then runs Nov. 17-21.

Additionally, all WPT Prime and Main Tour stops will feature a competition for the Player of the Festival. The company willrelease a scoring system soon. Each winner earns a trophy and additional prizes.

The company will announce more WPT Prime events on the Season XX schedule in the coming weeks.

Expanding Footprint: WPT Partners With New FanJolt Social Media Video Service; More Action Ahead

The World Poker Tour continues branching out in new forms of media distribution and fan engagement. From entering the world of NFTs to expanded streaming platforms, tour management hasn’t shied away from expanding its footprint in recent years.

The tour announced yet another partnership on Friday, teaming up with FanJolt. The company offers “a new interactive fan experience that directly connects users with their favorite faces from the worlds of poker, sports, and entertainment to support their charities and foundations.”

That now includes some of the WPT’s biggest names and most well-known poker players.

“FanJolt is a unique enhancement to our overall fan engagement,” WPT CEO Adam Pliska said in a news release. “We look forward to sharing the opportunity for an exclusive WPT experience with poker players and fans around the world.”

Along with that deal, the tour also recently announced a new agreement for an NFT Poker Club involving online poker. Here’s a look at some of the latest news from the tour.

How does FanJolt work?

FanJolt allows users to join live broadcasts with their favorite celebrities. Each live broadcast includes an opportunity for a participant to be “JOLTED” into personal, one-on-one conversations with the individual celeb host.

The company is a startup and the launch will now include WPT cast members Vince Van Patten, Lynn Gilmartin, and Tony Dunst.

Poker pros Daniel Negreanu, Maria Ho, and Antonio Esfandiari have also joined the FanJolt lineup. Ho and Negreanu make their FanJolt debut with a dual broadcast on Feb. 17.

Broadcast fees start at $1.99. A look at the launch showed upcoming streams with golfing legend Annika Sorenstam, tennis superstar Rafa Nadal, and actor/comedian Chevy Chase.

Other participants include Aaron Judge, Kareem Hunt, Kevin O’Leary, Jewel, Ashanti, and others. As part of the initial launch, all live broadcast fees in February will go to designated charities.

“Through FanJolt, World Poker Tour fans can instantly and easily gain access to their favorite players through a variety of upcoming events,” FanJolt founder and CEO Trevor Short said.

“In addition to bringing fans and their icons together on one platform, FanJolt and The World Poker Tour look forward to not only engaging with the community, but being able to use the platform to benefit a variety of charities and foundations with each interaction.”

Media presence expansion continues

Poker continues to see some mainstream interest in recent weeks. 16-time World Series of Poker champion Phil Hellmuth headlined a celebrity event last week for the American Cornhole League.

The event had Hellmuth, who also hosts the WPT’s Raw Deal segment, paired with a pro and playing at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas on ESPN.

Actor Laurence Fishburne also recently hit the screen in a television commercial for the free-to-play WSOP mobile game. The WPT now adds some of its own talent and players to a bit of the Hollywood ranks with FanJolt.

The tour also recently announced a deal with GAMAVRS. The company is launching the Poker Heroes Club, the world’s first NFT poker club.

“Club members will be able to use their Poker Heroes as in-client avatars with special abilities such as access to freeroll tournaments, exclusive celebrity tables, and access to WPT live VIP events,” the WPT notes in announcing the partnership.

Poker Heroes owners can upload their NFTs to use as avatars and unlock “poker superpowers.” These can be used as part of a new online poker offering known as WPTGlobal.

The companies are promising plenty of special events from $100,000 freerolls to live VIP events.

More WPT events on the horizon

In January, the Lucky Hearts Poker Open kicked off the tour’s 20th anniversary season at the Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood, Florida.

Alexander Yen came out on top for $975,240 after topping a field of 1,982 entries, which created a $6.4 million prize pool.

The 36-year-old University of Indiana graduate learned how to play in college. He’s now been playing professionally for 15 years.

“(My friends and I) started playing for beer money, and they would all beat me and take my money,” Yen told WPT.com after scoring the biggest win of his career. “By sophomore year, I started playing online poker, and that’s when things really started to click and take off.”

The tour again heads to Florida for the second stop of the season. The $3,500 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown runs from April 8-12 and features a $2 million guarantee. After that is the WPT Choctaw in Durant, Oklahoma, from May 13-16 and also with a $3,500 buy-in.

The WPTDS then returns to Thunder Valley Casino in California from April 28 – May 1 and comes with a $1,500 buy-in. More WPT events are expected to be announced soon.

Partypoker Roundup: WPTDS Wraps Up With Timothy Kelly Taking Main Event For $171,804

The WPTDeepStacks Online Series concluded at partypoker on Tuesday with Canada-based Timothy Kelly scoring the Main Event title for $171,804.

The WPTDeepStacks Online Series concluded at partypoker on Tuesday with Canada-based Timothy Kelly scoring the Main Event title for $171,804.

The series ran Oct. 7-26 with numerous events and some major guarantees. Kelly’s win capped a series that also saw one player turn a freeroll ticket into a nice tournament win. Here’s a look at some of the series action.

A look at the partypoker WPTDS Main Event

The $1,100 Main Event created a prize pool of just over $1 million. Kelly held the chip lead going into the final table.

A wire-to-wire run saw him secure the win, but Kelly had some tough competition to overcome. He had to out play such top-notch players as third-place finisher Felix Stephensen, of Norway, and runner-up Jerry Ödeen, of Sweden.

The final table was streamed live across partypoker’s social media channels including Twitch, Youtube, and Facebook Live. 

Other partypoker series winners

The WPTDeepStacks Online included nine events with buy-ins ranging from $11 up to $5,200. Partypoker offered many free satellites and ticket giveaways for players to get in the action.

One Russian player freerolled his way to a big score. Sergei Brykalin was set to go on vacation, when he checked the partypoker Discord channel at the last moment.

Brykalin found a free ticket into the $11 Mini Turbo Knockout. After taking down a big pot with three tables left, Brykalin went on to claim the title. 

“A player with 45 big blinds sat down and opened to 4.5 big blinds,” Brykalin said. “He opened to 4.5 big blinds again from early position, and I had pocket Jacks in the big blind.

“All my 29 big blinds ended up in the middle of the table, and he called with eights. Miraculously, my Jacks held and I was now the chip leader. The rest is history.”

Brykalin outlasted 8,952 players, turning his freeroll into an $8,834 first place victory. 

Other players also found some big finishes. The series kicked off with Russia’s Aleksandr Zhilin winning the $215 Opener for $37,047. The event featured a $200,00 guarantee.

Another standout performance included Leonardo Nascimento Silva winning the $109 Mini Main Event for $32,261. The win continues a recent trend of dominating online poker performances from Brazilian players.

In the $109 Turbo Knockout, Jakub Wojtas grabbed a win for a top prize of $32,799

Christos Symeonidis also found a victory in the $320 Closer, which came with a $300,000 guarantee. The win came with a nice payday of $26,085.

More action in the works With Irish Poker Masters KO, MILLIONS Online

The WPTDS series may have come to an end, but more series are on the horizon. The Irish Poker Masters KO Online runs Nov. 5-24 at partypoker.

A complete schedule hasn’t been released, but the €1,100 Main Event features a €1 million guarantee.

The MILLIONS Online is also right around the corner, running Dec. 3-28. The series offers plenty of action to usher in the holiday season.

The €5,300 Main Event comes with a $5 million guarantee. Players can expect plenty of qualifying events for a large range of players.

Buy-ins ranging from mini versions of the bigger events to multiple high roller tournaments. Look for knockout events, turbos, Pot Limit Omaha, and more. The series should attract some of the biggest names in poker and a full schedule should be released soon.

WPT Adds To European Content Lineup With Samsung; Continues Growing Online Poker Reach

The WPT announced this week that the company’s televised events are now available to millions more players across Europe.

The World Poker Tour announced this week that the company’s televised events are now available to millions more players across Europe. Samsung TV Plus now offers the television show in nine key European markets.

The show is already available on the service to viewers in the United States and Canada. The series is now on Samsung TV Plus in:

“World Poker Tour content has always brought roller-coaster levels of excitement from world-class poker tournaments to TV screens around the world,” WPT Studios Vice President Johnny McMahon said in a news release. “We know we have passionate fans in Europe, who are the biggest winners here.”

Yet another streaming option for WPT

Launched in 2015, TV Plus is a free streaming service available on Samsung Smart TV owners. The app is available on select Galaxy smartphones and tablets in these European countries.

As the WPT heads toward its 20th anniversary in 2022, poker fans can watch Seasons 8-17 on the service. The agreement also includes archived live streams and specials.

Viewers can check out WPT Main Tour stops from Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Barcelona, and Paris. Alpha8 high roller programming is also included. That series features some of the highest buy-in events in the world.

Growing number of viewing options

The addition of Samsung TV Plus comes as the tour adds more streaming coverage in recent years. The company has its own WPT channel on Pluto TV and is also available on Xumo, IMDB TV, Roku, Vizio, Tivo+ and Vizio.

In 2020, the company reached a deal with ThetaTV, also giving the WPT a 24/7 channel on that platform as well. In all, the WPT is available on more than 30 streaming services around the world.

The company also reached a major deal with Mexico’s TV Azteca network in 2019. The network is available for free and reaches more than 95% of the Mexican market. That agreement also included expanding into other Latin American countries.

In the US, the company also continues airing its traditional television show on Bally Sports regional networks. The tour also continues to stream live tournament and cash game coverage on its own website as well its YouTube, Twitch, and Facebook channels.

“Our mission is to continually increase the number of ways in which poker enthusiasts can watch the World Poker Tour,” WPT executive director of ad sales and distribution Loc Sondheim said. “We have found a partner in Samsung that is able to help us do just that.” 

The World Poker Tour action returns to partypoker this week with the WPTDeepStacks Online Series set for Oct. 7-26.

Growth also continues in online poker

Along with promoting its own ClubWPT sweepstakes poker site, the company also continues to grow its online partnership with partypoker. The two brands have teamed up on numerous events since the pandemic began in 2020.

The WPTDeepstacks (WPTDS) Online Series is currently underway at partypoker and runs through Oct. 26. The series promises a wide range of events and buy-ins.

That includes a $1,100 Main Event with a $1 million guarantee. A few events have already wrapped up. The $215 Opener featured a $200,000 guarantee and brought in 1,125 entries. Russia’s Aleksandr Zhilin took the top spot for $37,047.

The WPTDS continues throughout the week with Main Event starting flights running through Oct. 25. Here’s a complete preview and schedule of the entire series.

Qualifiers start at just a penny

Once again, partypoker hopes to get players of all types involved and qualifiers for the Main Event start at just $0.01. A full satellite tree is currently running on partypoker ahead of the tournament.

Players have an opportunity to follow in the footsteps of Yaroslav Bogaev and Nikolai Gorbunov. Both advanced to Day 2 of the Main Event in the recent WPT World Online Championships after entering at the centroll stage. Bogaev placed 39th and cashed for $23,499 and Gorbunov finished 99th for $13,204.

Also starting on Sunday, players can jump in qualifiers for the High Roller. Partypoker is running phase tournaments for that event, with buy-ins from $6 to $60.

These players can then move on to nightly $530 buy-in Phase 3 events. Players who advance then take their chips into the $5,200 buy-in Phased Final on Oct. 24.

“I’m very happy to have the chance to play in so many good tournaments at partypoker,” Team partypoker’s Joao Simao said in a news release. “And I’m sure the WPTDeepStacks Online Series will be an amazing series, especially with the satellite opportunities for players of all bankrolls.”
