A four-year partnership has been signed by partypoker LIVE and the World Poker Tour giving poker players more choice of where to play.
Up to seven events, each with guaranteed prize pools of up to €3 million, have been pencilled in to take place across Europe and Canada. The first scheduled event takes place in October 2018 at the Playground Poker Club in Montreal. This festival will be a first for the World Poker Tour as the WPT500, WPTDeepStacks, and the WPT Main Tour come together in a single series that player of all levels can compete in.
Other events to keep an eye out for include a trip to Sochi in February 2019 and to the home of British poker Dusk Till Dawn during April 2019.
Players have the chance to qualify for these World Poker Tour events online at partypoker from as little as a single cent. At least 300 seats will be guaranteed for each WPT Main Tour event that is held in partnership with partypoker LIVE, plus players will be able to take full advantage of the flexible currently PP LIVE Dollars and use these to buy into World Poker Tour events.
President of partypoker LIVE, John Duthie, said of the partnership, “I’m so pleased to announce our new partnership with the World Poker Tour. The WPT has always aimed to put the players first, and that is a mission we strongly adhere to with our partypoker LIVE events. Collaborating with the WPT on these additional events across Canada and Europe will allow us to continue to provide players with the tournaments they want across the globe.”
WPT’s Vice President of Global Tour Management, Angelica Hael, said, “The World Poker Tour is proud to partner with partypoker LIVE on this new global initiative. The WPT is dedicated to bringing world-class poker to more people’s lives, a value that is shared by John Duthie and the entire team at partypoker LIVE. Together with partypoker LIVE, we look forward to elevating the game for all levels.”
Vice President of WPT Europe, Hermance Blum is delighted the WPT and partypoker are joining forces again. “The partnership with partypoker LIVE will bring WPT Main Tour stops in Europe to unprecedented heights. We are thrilled that two major operators can join forces again to bring the best poker experience to the players with each individual savoir-faire.”
