12 Championship Events
The WPT World Online Championships features a total of 12 Championship events, each coming with Mini and Micro editions to accommodate as many players as possible. What more, plenty of satellites will also run throughout the festival to give you the chance to take part for just a small investment.
If that isn’t enough to excite you, five of the 12 Championship events will each give away a ticket to the prestigious WPT Tournament of Champions, giving you that once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be part of the exclusive Champions Club!
The main highlight of the festival is the $10,300 buy-in Main Event which comes with a mouth-watering guarantee of $10 million! But you may also take part in tons of side events that promises incredible value.
Limited Re-entries & Late Registration
If you’re a fan of old-school poker, then this festival is for you. All NLHE events allow single re-entry, and the Championship events also feature just two starting flights, and limited late registration periods.
The festival also requires the use of real names, meaning you’ll get to know the true identities of your opponents.
Leaderboard Race & Tournament Streaming
The championship action will be made available to fans and spectators across the globe, with the final table of each championship event to be livestreamed on partypokerTV, Facebook, and YouTube. Real names of players will also be displayed on the screen to mimic a live WPT final table. The commentary booth will be handled by popular figures from both the WPT and partypoker, including Mike Sexton, Vince Van Patten, Joey Ingram and Matt Savage.
