Feast Your Eyes On These Awesome WPTWOC Side Events

2 years ago ● Jamie Kay

You’ve already been salivating over the WPT World Online Championships Championship Event schedule and now its time to feast your eyes on the first week’s side events.

The next eight weeks are going to be awesome for poker tournament specialists as we guarantee at least $100 million will be won by the time the WPT World Online Championships conclude. You already know there are 12 Championship Events, each with Mini and Micro editions, and the fact we’ve reduced late registration and the number of re-entries to make this a festival for the players, but what about the side events you’ve been anticipating?

The first Championship Event of the series shuffles up and deals on July 18. There are $3,200, $320, and $33 buy-in editions of the Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Low Championship. You’ll notice a theme if you scan down the scheduled events in the WPT tab of the partypoker lobby; each week mostly focusses on a different poker variant:

  • Week 1: Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo
  • Week 2: Pot-Limit Omaha
  • Week 3: 8-Max No-Limit Hold’em
  • Week 4: 6-Max No-Limit Hold’em
  • Week 5: Progressive Knockouts
  • Week 6: Mix-Max
  • Week 7: Mini and Micro No-Limit Hold’em
  • Week 8: Main Events

We’re kicking the side events off in style at 20:00 CET on July 18 with the WPT Opener tournaments. These come with buy-ins of $1,050, $109, and $11, with guaranteed prize pools worth $1,000,000, $500,000, and $100,000 respectively.

To kick things off in style, we’re running two WPT Opener Mega Sats, each with 50x $1,050 seats guaranteed! head to partypoker at 18:00 CET on July 18 for the first $109 Mega Sat. Winning a seat here registers you for Day 1A that starts at 20:00 CT on July 18.

Sunday grinders can also win one of 50x $1,050 seats by entering the $109 Mega Sat at 18:00 CET on July 19. Winning a seat puts you into Day 1B at 20:00 CET. Good luck!

You’ll find at least two different side events, each with a trio of buy-ins, each day throughout the WPT World Online Championships, giving you plenty of chances of becoming a WPT champion and winning a bankroll-boosting prize.

All our Championship Events are special but there are five that are especially so. The five tournaments listed below grant their champion a seat to the season-ending WPT Tournament of Champions worth $15,000 plus travel and accommodation for the event.

  • Event #3: $3,200 8-Max Championship – starting August 1
  • Event #4: $3,200 6-Max Championship – starting August 8
  • Event #5: $3,200 Knockout Championship – starting August 15
  • Event #6: $3,200 Mix-Max Championship – starting August 22
  • Event #9: $10,300 Main Event – starting September 5

Don’t forget that you earn leaderboard points for the $100,000 worth of leaderboards when you compete in the Championship and side events. Tournaments with buy-ins of $320 or more earn points for the WPT Player of the Series where the eventual winner walks away with $50,000 cash. Events with buy-in less than $320 count towards the WPT Rising Star leaderboard where the winner banks a free $10,000.

We can’t wait to see players from around the world hit the partypoker tables and make this value-packed festival a series to remember.
