Those of you who dream of becoming a World Poker Tour (WPT) champion have the chance to realise those dreams for a mere $0.01 this weekend.
partypoker and the WPT have joined forces again to bring you the $2 million guaranteed WPT Montreal Main Event. This $3,200 buy-in event shuffles up and deals for the first time at 20:05 CET on January 10 but you don’t want to pay the full asking price when you can satellite your way in from a single cent!
WPT Montreal Main Event Schedule
|Sun 10 Jan||20:05||WPT Montreal Main Event Day 1A|
|Sun 17 Jan||20:05||WPT Montreal Main Event Day 1B|
|Mon 18 Jan||20:05||WPT Montreal Main Event Day Final Day|
The WPT Montreal Main Event continues our quest to make every partypoker tournament fun, fair, and accessible to everyone. For starters, there are only two starting flights for this $2 million guaranteed event. Each flight is limited to a single re-entry, meaning you don’t have to fight it out with opponents who have massive bankrolls and can afford to fire multiple bullets.
Again, late registration slams shut after only nine levels so the professional value hunters won’t be buying in at the last second.
Also, both Day 1A and Day 1B conclude after 18 levels. These levels are 20-minutes long, which means each starting flight ends after six hours, allowing you to get to bed at a reasonable time, which is something of a rarity in online poker circles these days.
Speaking of the WPT Montreal Main Event’s structure, we have to say it is fantastic. Everyone starts with 1,000,000 chips and the blinds start at only 2,500/5,000/625a. Those blinds will only be at 60,000/120,000/15,000a by the time the 18th and final Day 1 level begins!
Champion Gets Immortalised in WPT History
The champion of the WPT Montreal Main Event not only secures a massive payout but receives a $15,000 seat to the next Tournament of Champions, presented by Baccarat Crystal.
They also have their name engraved on the Mike Sexton WPT Champions Cup trophy, and receive a replica version of it for their mantelpiece.
WPT Montreal Satellites
WPT Montreal satellites kick off this Sunday, November 8 and start with a buy-in of only $0.01. The first of these super-budget satellites start at 12:00 CET prompt on November 8 and guarantees at least 10 seats to the $3.30 phase satellite.
The satellites turn into Phase tournaments after the centroll level. You can buy into any stage your bankroll allows and enter as many of them as you wish but can only take your largest stack through with you if you progress more than once.
All Phases feed into the weekly final where the first cards are pitched at 21:00 CET each Sunday. There’s no direct buy-in into these finals which means $33 is the most any partypoker player will pay to win their $3,200 WPT Montreal Main Event seat.
Don’t forget you can also use Tournament Dollars to buy into any of the WPT Montreal Main Event satellites or the Main Event itself. Tournament Dollar satellites run throughout the day with buy-ins from $1.10.
