PartyPoker Weekly: Dominate the World, Tony G Holds Hellmuth Competition, and More
This week in the PartyPoker Weekly, we’ll tell you all about the new "World Domination" promotion, how to win World Poker Tour seats, how Tony G made fun of Phil Hellmuth — yet again, and more!
Achieve World Domination
PartyPoker is giving players the chance to rule the planet this November and December with the exciting World Domination promotion. It's going to be one of the most enjoyable promotions of the year, and one that Tony G assures us makes him set for “total world annihilation!”
During the World Domination promotion, PartyPoker is going to award thousands of dollars’ worth of cash prizes, tournament and freeroll seats, and give players the chance to win the top prize of $100,000.
How to Dominate the World
To achieve world domination, players only have to earn Party Points between Nov. 7 and Dec. 31.
Every time players earn 10 Party Points, they will be randomly awarded one of 72 different cities from around the world. Most cities will also come with an award of a valuable instant prize, but the big prizes are awarded if players can manage to conquer entire countries and continents.
The biggest prize is $100,000, which will be awarded to any player who manages to accumulate all 72 unique cities. You can get started now and conquer your first city for only five Party Points. What are you waiting for?
Win World Poker Tour Seats
The World Poker Tour just finished up in Amnéville and dozens of players made it to the exotic French location by winning a seat on PartyPoker. Want to win a seat to a World Poker Tour stop?
The next stop on the WPT is the Czech Republic, with WPT Bohemia set to kick off on Nov. 18. A tournament package worth $3,000 is now being awarded in the PartyPoker client, complete with a Main Event buy-in, spending money, and accommodation at Europe’s largest poker room all taken care of.
Taking place at the Corinthia Casino just a few weeks after the Bohemia event wraps up, WPT Prague is the newest addition to the World Poker Tour. The Main Event kicks off on Dec. 1 and the $5,000 buy-in event is sure to create a massive prize pool. A mix of qualifiers and satellites are now running, and PartyPoker will award dozens of $7,500 tournament packages.
The World Poker Tour Five Diamond Classic continues to be one of the biggest events on the tournament calendar when hundreds of players descend upon the famous Bellagio Casino in Las Vegas every December. Several $14,000 tournament packages are now up for grabs at PartyPoker with the $10,300 Main Event again set to be one of the most prestigious tournaments of the year.
Tony G Makes Fun of Hellmuth’s Twitter Shenanigans
Earlier in the week, Tony G discussed how the BBC had given him the title of “world-class poker player” in an article written about his plight against the Alderney Gambling Control Commission. Instead of taking the compliment, in typical Tony G style, he saw this is a chance to needle Phil Hellmuth.
"If I was my good buddy Phil Hellmuth, last week would have been a career highlight for me and something I would have been shouting from the rooftops. I was interviewed by the BBC and they told the world what everybody already knows — I am a world-class poker player," Tony G said on his blog
Tony G went on to give some humorous suggestions as to what Phil Hellmuth’s Twitter feed may have looked like had the BBC said the same thing about him.
@phil_hellmuth: “It’s official — the BBC put out a press release saying what everyone knows — I am world class.”
@phil_hellmuth “Having dinner with Hilary Swank, Slash and a group of Texan billionaires and managed to find five minutes in my schedule for BBC — they just wanted an autograph.”
Tony G is now holding a competition in the comments section of his blog to see who can come up with the best Hellmuth Twitter impression. A cash prize is up for grabs for Tony G's favorite!
