What makes the WPT Main Event a special opportunity for partypoker players is that they can qualify for just a single cent, with centrolls running throughout the day and satellite finals held every Sunday.
The $0.01 buy-in satellites award at least 15 tickets to the $4.40 buy-in Phase 1. Players who make their way through that stage go into the $22 buy-in Phase 2, followed by the $109 Phase 3. This leads into the weekly final, where a total of 20 WPT Main Event Day 1A tickets wait to be won.
In 2020, Phil Mighall went down in history as the inaugural champion of the WPT World Online Championships Main Event, placing first from a field of 1,011 players to win an outstanding $1,550,298.47.
Get Ready For The Value-Packed WPT Pro Hunt Event
Meanwhile, Team partypoker pros and other high-profile names will compete in the WPT Pro Hunt progressive knockout tournament on the first day of the series. Players can compete for their share of a guaranteed $30,000 for a buy-in of $33. A total of 20% of the prize pool will be donated to a charity. Team partypoker’s Jaime Staples, Courtney Gee, Patrick Leonard, Joao Simao, Joni Jouhkimainen and Mikita Badziakouski are all confirmed participants.
Should players eliminate a Team partypoker member, they win special bounty prizes, including $109 tickets to a satellite final for the WPT Main Event. The tournament’s champion enters the WPT Main Event automatically.
Team partypoker’s Patrick Leonard said: “The WPT World Online Championships are back, and I can’t wait to play. The WPT Main Event should be a great tournament with satellites running now.
“I’ll be in the mix for the WPT Pro Hunt again, too, with satellite tickets being given away for knocking partypoker pros out, so there will be loads of chances to get yourself into the WPT Main Event.”
More WPT World Online Championships events will be confirmed in due course.
