Schedule Change "Good Solution For All" Says Yong

partypoker partner and Dusk Till Dawn owner Rob Yong was the first to announce the news over the weekend,

"We've consulted with players and also spoken with WPT," said Yong in a short video, "And instead of running the WTPDeepStacks over the top of the WPT [Online Championship], making it very hard to qualify players, we've taken the WPTDeepStacks and moved it to when the Main Event finishes.

"This is exactly the same as how it's been done live, so it's a good solution for all."

WPT Online Guarantees Double

When originally announced, the WPT Online series had 10 events with a combined $15 million in guarantees.

According to the partypoker website, that has now increased to 40 events with $30 million in guarantees. The major change has been the delay to the start of the WPTDeepStacks from the 11th May until the 18th May. The guarantee has also been increased from $2,000,000 to $1,000,000.

Other changes include the Closer and Mini Closer moved from the 20th May to the 31st May. The two PKO tournaments have also had their guarantees increased; the Closer was originally scheduled to have a $200,000 guarantee for a $530 buy-in. That has now been increased to $1,000,000.

WPTDeepStacks Moved in Schedule

Originally scheduled for ten starting flights between May 11th and May 19th, the $3m GTD WPTDeepStacks will now begin on Monday 18th May. The $1,050 buy-in tournament is an online version of its popular live format and will hope to attract a strong field.

There is also the addition of a Mini WPTDeepStacks, something that was not originally on the WPT Online schedule. This $109 tournament comes with a $1,000,000 guarantee.

Updated WPT Online schedule

Here is a revised WPT Online schedule according to the partypoker client. With no events besides the WPTDeepStacks and Mini WPTDeepStacks scheduled between May 20th and May 25th, Yong says that partypoker might "sprinkle in" a few side events

"But at the end of the day," said Yong. "Wherever we put a side event in we'll also delete our daily tournaments so there are no extra tournaments in the lobby."
