Win Your Way To 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 bigger thanks to the festival of poker and mind games that will be taking place and the fact there are going to be three starting flights, which means the first-place prize could exceed the €450,000 ($599,720) that was awarded to Andrey Pateychuk last year, and you could be in with a chance of winning a WPT title if you qualify for WPT Prague on PartyPoker.
This year's WPT Prague Main Event is part of the Prague Winter Festival that will see a number of other well-established poker tours host their Main Events in the Czech capital. What is more, there will also be the inaugural Mind Sports Festival where games such as Risk, Counterstrike and even Scrabble will be played for real money. Prague is an amazing city anyway but these extra activities going on around the WPT Prague Main Event make it a "must not miss" event.
In addition, if you buy into Day 1a of WPT Prague and bust out you can register for a freeroll tournament where one in 11 players will win a seat to Day 1c!
Satellite tournaments have been running in the PartyPoker lobby for a couple of weeks now, but they will cease to do so on 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! PokerNews will be there, will you?
