What to expect from the WPT partypoker action

The main event plays out over four days, with starting flights running on three consecutive Sundays beginning Aug. 29. Day 2 is set for Sept. 13 with the final two days on Sept. 14-15.

Partypoker is once again trying to get players of all bankrolls involved. Players can qualify for just a penny, with centrolls already running and satellite finals held every Sunday.

The $0.01 satellites award at least 15 tickets to the $4.40 buy-in Phase 1. Players can then advance to a $22 buy-in Phase 2.

That’s then followed by the $109 Phase 3. This leads into the weekly final, where 20 Main Event Day 1A tickets will be awarded.

In 2020, the United Kingdom’s Phil Mighall became the inaugural main event champion. He topped a field of 1,011 players to win $1.6 million.

Partypoker has announced one more event so far as part of the series. The $33 WPT Pro Hunt features a $30,000 guarantee and a progressive knockout format.

Team partypoker pros and other high-profile players will be out in force during the event. The tournament also comes with a charity angle, with 20% of the prize pool being donated.

Some of those competing include Team partypoker’s Jaime Staples, Courtney Gee, Patrick Leonard, Joao Simao, Joni Jouhkimainen, and Mikita Bodyakovskiy.

Knocking out a pro will also bring some bonus prizes for players, including $109 tickets to main event satellite finals. The tournament winner also automatically earns an entry into the main event.

The entire schedule for the WPT World Online Championships will be released soon.

Hyllegaard takes down Grand Prix High Roller

The action continues this month in the partypoker Grand Prix and runs through Aug. 2. Denmark’s Patrick Hyllegaard is one of the latest winners after winning the $530 Six-Max High Roller.

The event produced a field of 1,105 entries and Hyllegaard scored $67,197. The victory came five months after taking down a $320 MILLIONS Online Six-Max Turbo.

Hungary’s Viktor Zsemlye finished runner-up for $41,469. For a complete preview and schedule of this series, click here.
