PartyPoker Weekly: Czech Out The WPT Prague Satellites!
Welcome back gentle reader, welcome back to your weekly dose of all matters PartyPoker related. This week we bring you details on the World Poker Tour Prague satellites, let you know how you could be heading to WPT Copenhagen, who Tony G thinks is a robot and much more besides! Keep reading to discover what we have in store for you.
Head To The Czech Republic For WPT Prague
Last year, the Prague leg of the World Poker Tour broke the record for the best attended European-based WPT Main Event when 571 players bought in, creating a prize pool of €1,753,202 ($2,336,512). This year the tournament could be even larger thanks to the festival of poker and mind games that will be taking place, which means the first place prize could exceed the €450,000 ($599,720) that was awarded to Andrey Pateychuk, and you could be in with a chance of winning a WPT title if you qualify for WPT Prague on PartyPoker.
Satellite tournaments are already running in the PartyPoker lobby and they will continue to do so until Nov. 18. There are freerolls, rebuys and freezeouts that all feed into the weekly $300+$25 WPT Prague Satelllite where one package is guaranteed to be awarded.
Each $6,000 WPT Prague package consists of:
- $4,250 WPT Prague Main Event buy-in
- Six nights' accommodation
- $800 spending money
Do not delay, start the ball rolling today and you could be jetting off to Prague in December for a shot at the WPT Prague crown!
Overused Poker Phrases
Last week our very own Donnie Peters wrote a fantastic article on the global PokerNews site that highlighted many areas that the game of poker seems to be getting wrong right now. One area discussed was how serious the game seems to have become, especially in major events, so it is no surprise that PartyPoker have tried to inject a little tongue-in-cheek humor into their blog.
"So sick," and 8 other overused poker-related sayings highlights some of the poker phrases you will regularly hear at the felt, and although some of them legitimate, the article is meant to be a bit of light-hearted poker humor, which is never a bad thing in our eyes!
Win A Share Of $1,000,000 This Autumn In The Autumn Million
Depending where in the world you are reading this from, summer will be all but over, but PartyPoker has the perfect cure for the post-summer blues, the Autumn Million tournament.
Following the success of the Summer Million, this $640 no-limit hold'em tournament will boast a massive $1,000,000 prize pool and should see some of the best online players in the business vying for what should be a first-place prize in excess of $200,000. What would you do with $200,000, especially with Christmas being on the horizon?
The Autumn Million kicks off at precisely 13:30 ET on Nov. 4 and you could be playing it for free! Every day, up to the start of the Autumn Million, there will be country specific freerolls that feed into a weekly Autumn Million where five seats are guaranteed to this spectacular $1,000,000 guaranteed event.
Should you not want to go down the freeroll route there are dozens of satellite tournaments available, with buy-ins starting from $2 and increasing all the way up to $172, meaning there will be a satellite tournament for you regardless of the size of your bankroll.
