PartyPoker Weekly: Qualifiers Now Open for WPT Paris & Malta, and More
The latest edition of the PartyPoker Weekly is here and ready for you. In this article we have news on World Poker Tour satellites, a $1 million dollar tournament and more.
Win A $13,000 Package to WPT Grand Prix de Paris
The legendary Aviation Club de France was the venue for the first European-based World Poker Tour Main Event and it is now a regular feature on the long-running tour.
The WPT returns to Paris from Sept. 10 to 15, and you could be heading to the French capital armed with a Main Event package worth $13,000.
Each package consists of:
- $9,500 WPT Grand Prix de Paris Main Event buy-in
- Five nights accommodation
- $1,400 spending money
Along with the above, package winners will also be able to experience everything Paris has to offer including access to the exclusive WPT Players' Party, boat tours, go-karting and much more.
Satellites for WPT Grand Prix de Paris are in the PartyPoker lobby right now and will remain there until Aug. 19, so you have around three weeks to bag a seat to one of the most prestigious stops on the WPT.
These satellites start with daily freerolls and gradually increase up to the weekly $650+$50 (Sundays at 15:20 ET) finale where one $13,000 package is guaranteed.
Last year's WPT Grand Prix de Paris attracted 312 runners and there were all outlasted by Matt Waxman who became the first American winner of a European-based WPT Main Event. He also picked up the not-so-small matter of €500,000 ($721,178) for his efforts too. Will you be 2012's champion?
Kick Of The Summer in Style With The Summer Million
The $1,000,000 guaranteed PartyPoker Summer Million is just days away and someone will be walking away with a a potentially life-changing sum of money — it may as well be you!
This fantastic tournament will kick off at precisely 13:30 ET on Aug. 5 and will continue until one player has one all of the chips in play, and there should be plenty of those seeing how players start with 20,000 chips each! The only thing standing between you and your shot at glory is the $600+$40 buy-in but if this is too expensive for you to pay fear not because there are still satellites running in the PartyPoker lobby.
Every day there will be daily country specific freerolls where the top 10 players progress to a Summer Million Special satellite; in this second stage there are five seats guaranteed to the Summer Million event. Those of you not wanting to go down the freeroll route can take part in the Player Points Qualifiers, along with freezeout and rebuy satellites starting at just $1. There really is nothing stopping you from participating in what could be the online tournament of the year.
Play Poker in the Sun at WPT Malta
Sun, sea, and scorching hot poker are on the cards yet again as the World Poker Tour drops anchor in Malta for the second consecutive year. Last year's Mediterranean frolics were such a big hit that the WPT simply had to return to the island again this year.
The Main Event, which will take place in the Casino Portomaso in St Julian, runs between Sept. 16 and 20 and will cost $4,200 to enter. However, you could be taking part for free if you win yourself an exclusive $6,500 package to WPT Malta.
Each package consists of:
- $4,200 WPT Malta Main Event buy-in
- $850 spending money
- Five-star hotel accommodation
- The renowned PartyPoker hospitality, including a WPT Players' Party
There are going to be five WPT Malta Satellites, each costing $325+$25 to enter and each awarding at least one package each, running each Sunday at 14:50 ET on July 29, August 5, 12, 19, and 26, but there are smaller buy-in qualifiers costing between nothing and $38 feeding into these five finales. Do not delay, win your WPT Malta package now!
