World Poker Tour Heads To Vienna March 4-17, 2015
Mark your calendars for March 4-17, 2015, and get ready for some high-quality poker action as the World Poker Tour heads to Montesino Poker Club in the fabulous city of Vienna, Austria. The spectacular poker festival will be highlighted by the €3,300 Main Event taking place March 12-17, but there will be plenty of poker options for all levels.
From March 5-9, players can kick off the festivities with the €340 Warm-Up. Boasting a €200,000 guarantee, this event will allow players one re-entry per day and provide a starting stack of 20,000 in tournament chips. Find yourself at the final table, and you will be featured on the streamed webcast.
Then from March 9-12, the €1,100 8-Max will take place, and this event will also allow one re-entry per day. From March 11-12, the two-day €550 Pot-Limit Omaha will play out, but these two events are only the calm before the storm.
On March 12, it will be Day 1a of the partypoker WPT €3,300 Main Event. The second starting flight will take place the following day on March 13, and players are allowed one re-entry per day. The event will conclude on March 17 and will feature a streamed webcast of the action. Each participant will begin with 30,000 in tournament chips. Levels will be 60 minutes long on Day 1 and 90 minutes long on Day 2-4. On Day 5, the final day of the event, the levels will revert back to 60 minutes in length.
The last time the WPT made a trip to Vienna on the main tour was back in April 2012 during Season 10. There, it was Denmark's Morten Christensen who topped a field of 396 entries to claim the €313,390 first-place prize.
For those who may not be so fortunate to make a deep run in the Main Event, there will still be plenty of money to be won in the €6,000 High Roller that will take place March 14-15. If that's a little too pricy for your liking, a €220 Accumulator Turbo will run March 14-15 with three different starting heats.
Outside of the tournaments, players can dive into their favourite cash games throughout the festival, with Texas hold'em, Omaha, seven-card stud, and others available.
Needless to say, there's plenty of poker options for everyone.
