The WPT heads to the Montesino Casino between Feb. 19 and 24 where a bumper crowd is expected tio turn out for the €3,500 Main Event. Last year, during Season 10, there were 396 entrants to the WPT Vienna main event, who created a prize pool of €1,267,200 ($1,688,002)! The lion's share of this gigantic prize pool was awarded to Denmark's Morten Christensen who walked away with €313,390 for his efforts. This time around, it could be you who returns home with a potentially life-changing sum of money.
Qualifiers for the WPT Austria main event are already in the PartyPoker lobby and they will stay their until Feb. 03. That gives you a little over a fortnight in which to bag yourself a $6,500 package, so do not delay.
The graphic below shows the route you can go down in order to try and win your seat for as little as possible. Do you think you could make it all the way to Vienna for free?
Each $6,500 package consists of:
- $4,600 WPT Vienna main event buy-in.

Good luck with your qualification quest!
