Only Five WPT500 Day 1s Remain, Don’t Miss Out
The $1 million guaranteed 888poker WPT500 London Main Event only has five starting flights remaining, which means time really is running out if you want to become a World Poker Tour champion on home soil and get your hands on what will be a six-figure prize.
All five of the remaining Day 1s take place at the Aspers Casino in Stratford Westfield, London and they all cost £420 to buy into. For that princely sum, you receive 15,000 chips and play to a 30-minute clock. Late entry is available for the first eight levels.
Play on the WPT500 London Day 1s continues until only five percent of the field remains. When this figure is hit, the curtain comes down on the day’s play and anyone with chips in front of them progresses to Day 2 and does so with $1,500 (£1,065) locked up.
If you finish in the top eight percent of the field you’ll receive $1,100 while those finishing in the 12 percent of the field receive $900. These payments are made into your 888poker account with 48 hours of the tournament concluding.
