WPT Global Fall Festival – Key Details & Highlights
The WPT Global Fall Festival opens with one of its key events, the WPT500. This $530 buy-in, $125,000 GTD tournament features 11 Day 1 flights, with the winner to be crowned on September 17. On the same day, another huge event gets underway, the $1,060 buy-in WPT Prime which offers $250,000 in guaranteed prize money. The tournament also has 11 starting flights.
The schedule also includes a $110 buy-in Sunday Slam which runs every Sunday throughout the series and comes with $60,000 in guarantees. There’s a $530 buy-in Superstack on the line-up as well, along with 19 progressive knockout (PKO) tournaments.
But the cream of the crop is easily the WPT Championship which costs $3,500 to enter and has a guarantee of $300,000. The action begins on September 24, less than two hours after the start of Day 2 of WPT Prime.
WPT World Championship Passport Up for Grabs
For those keen on taking part in the upcoming WPT World Championship at Wynn Las Vegas but cannot afford the huge $10,400 buy-in, you’ll get the opportunity to secure a seat in the record-breaking tournament by participating in the WPT Global Fall Festival.
The series features a leaderboard race where the winner takes home a $12,400 WPT World Championship passport. That covers the $10,400 buy-in plus $2,000 in spending money. Even if you don’t finish on top of the standings, you may still win qualifier tickets to the tournament if you make it to the top 100 finishers.
Another way for you to receive a WPT World Championship Passport is by winning any event at the series. A victory in the WPT Global Fall Festival guarantees a seat in the Champion of Champions Freeroll which awards a $12,400 passport to the winner and satellite tickets to the second through eighth place.
