Online poker players have had plenty of action to take advantage of over the past few months. Top sites have offered special promotions, tournaments and more and players are enjoying it. At partypoker, the brand is currently running the WPT World Online Championship and the Main Event is one of the most anticipated events on the schedule. Players can take part in the special event for the chance to win part of the $10 million prize pool. The buy-in is a whopping $10,300, which is really not affordable for most players. So, many are trying to earn a spot into the event by competing in feeder satellites that start at just $2.20.
Get in for Little Money
The Main Event began on the 6th with the first of two starting rounds. Because the buy-in is so high, partypoker increased its Mega Satellites and provided 200 of the $10,300 seats into Day 1A. Feeders start at just $2.20 so players can work their way up to earning seats by starting on the low end.
Players who have a little bit more money to spend could jump to the Main Event Mega Satellites by paying the $530 buy-in or opt for the more expensive $1,050. There are more ways to win entry as well, including special edition SPINS events. These jackpot sit & go games make it possible for players to use just $10 and earn a ticket to the big event.
The SPINS option will offer several ways to get to the Main Event. Of course, the options arrive at random, so you never know if a SPINS tournament will provide just cash or tickets to feeders or the big event. There are ways to win a $33, $320, $1,050, $3,200 and a $10,300 ticket.
Additional Tournament Options
On the 7th, players can compete in several events at party via the WPT series. The WPT Second Chance event begins on this day, with a $500 + $30 buy-in. The event offers $100,000 in guaranteed prize money and players are allowed one re-buy. This is a progressive knockout event that will take place over a two-day time frame.
The WPT Mini Second Chance will kick off as well on this day with a $100 + $9 buy-in. The total guaranteed prize pool is $75,000. This is also a two-day event and will take place in progressive knockout format.
Jumping ahead a bit, the WPT series will feature the High Roller Championship on September 19, with a $25,000 + $500 buy-in. This event lasts two days and will offer up a whopping $5 million in guaranteed prize money. The Turbo Championship and Mini Turbo Championship are on the schedule for the 20th. These events have a $3000 + $200 and $300 + $20 buy-in respectively.
There is also a Micro version of this event, offering a much lower buy-in of $30 + $3. For the Turbo, players are competing for $1 million. The Mini offers $300,000 and the Micro $100,000. This is just a small portion of the remaining schedule, so players will find plenty more to take advantage of!
