PartyPoker Weekly: Play Poker in Cyprus and Old Trafford, and More!
Head to WPT Cyprus with PartyPoker
Close your eyes and think of the perfect location to play poker in. Does it have blue seas in the background? What about plenty of sunshine? An all-inclusive venue? How about hundreds of recreational poker players? If you want somewhere that ticks all of those boxes then you simply have to head to the upcoming WPT Cyprus Main Event.
The World Poker Tour returns to Cyprus this summer where there will be at least $1,500,000 to play for in the five-star Merit Crystal Cove Hotel and Casino. Taking place between August 16 and 21, the WPT Cyprus Main Event is sure to attract hundreds of players from all corners of the globe, thanks to the amazing setting and the superb poker action found there. PokerNews were at last season's WPT Cyprus event and we can confirm that the venue is fantastic and the poker action even better.
The Main Event costs $4,400 to play in, but you could be heading for the poker holiday of a lifetime for much less than that if you qualify for WPT Cyprus at PartyPoker.
Every Sunday at 15:20ET there is a $325+$25 WPT Cyprus Satellite that awards at least one WPT Cyprus package valued at $6,500. If the $350 satellite is too costly for you, you may want to check out the feeder satellites that run every day and have buy-ins ranging from just $1 up to $38 — there are even daily freeroll tournaments.
Each WPT Cyprus package awards:
- $4,400 WPT Cyprus main Event Buy-in
- Six nights of all-inclusive accommodation
- $800 spending money
Join PartyPoker in the Mediterranean and enjoy the poker holiday of a lifetime with PartyPoker.
