PartyPoker Weekly: Head to Canada for the WPT and Win Huge Prizes in March
Qualify for the WPT Canadian Spring Championships at PartyPoker
The World Poker Tour heads to Canada in May, and you could be heading to the Playground Poker Club armed with a $6,500 package thanks to PartyPoker.
The all-new WPT Canadian Spring Championship runs from May 3 to 9 and should see a bumper crowd descend on the Playground Poker Club for the $3,300 Main Event. When the WPT was last in Canada in November 2012, a total of 1,173 entries bought into the Main Event to create a $3,407,206 prize pool. The eventual winner was Jonathan Roy who walked away with a bankroll-boosting $777,903 for a week’s work. This year it could be you who wins a life-changing sum.
Qualifying tournaments are now running in the PartyPoker lobby and will continue until April 21. All qualifiers (freerolls, $1 rebuys, $6 freezeouts or $38 freezeouts) eventually feed into the weekly WPT CDN Spring Championships Satellites that run at 15:20 ET every Sunday. The $325+$25 buy-in satellite guarantees at least one package worth $6,500.
Each package consists of:
- $3,300 WPT Canadian Spring Championship Main Event buy-in
- Seven nights’ hotel accommodation
- $1,200 in spending money
Follow in Roy’s footsteps and join an elite group of players who can call themselves WPT champions.

Roll with the punches and win big in the Contenders Promotion
The Contenders promotion is a popular and long-running promotion on PartyPoker that will see someone walk away with the lion's share of $12,000 and bragging rights over their peers every month throughout 2013 thanks to six special freerolls.
The six freerolls have prize pools ranging from $2,000 to a mouth-watering $12,000. Gaining access to the freerolls is a simple task, earn the required number of points (as shown in the graphic below) and a seat to the following month of freeroll tournaments will be awarded.
By earning just a single PartyPoint during the month, you will gain access to a $2,000 freeroll! Get your grind on and generate 1,000 PartyPoints at the poker tables, and you will be able to step into the ring of a $12,000 freeroll, which should have a first-place prize of around $3,000 or more.
PartyPoints are awarded at a rate of two per $1 paid in rake or tournament fees.
The freerolls will take place on the second Saturday of the month, with the first set of freerolls running in February. Keep your guard up, roll with the punches, and good luck.
Are your reflexes quick enough to take the FastForward Challenge?
FastForward Poker, PartyPoker's offering to the "fast-fold" world, allows players to play hundreds of hands per hour thanks to seating them in a player pool rather than at one fixed table. Instead of having to wait for a new hand to be dealt, players can click the "Forward Fold" button and be whisked from their seats and placed at a new table with new cards and different players.
This means that waiting for premium holdings is a thing of the past, and it is now easier than ever before to play several hundred of hands an hour. Being able to play more hands in an hour can potentially increase your hourly win rate, and thanks to a new promotion that is focused on FastForward Poker, your hourly rate could be boosted even further.
The FastForward Challenge will see you awarded a poker bonus between $5 and $100 just for playing FastForward poker. Earn just a single point on four days across the week and a $5 poker bonus will find its way to your account. Earn one point every day for seven days and this bonus increases to $10.
The maximum bonus this promotion yields is $100, awarded to anyone who earns 100 points a day for seven consecutive days. Points are awarded per $1 paid in rake. What's more, FastForward poker plays so fast that you will be plowing through hands in such a rapid fashion that the points will just rack up.
|Points Per Day||Four days in a week||Seven days in a week|
|One point per day||$5 poker bonus||$10 poker bonus|
|Five points per day||$15 poker bonus||$20 poker bonus|
|25 points per day||$35 poker bonus||$40 poker bonus|
|50 points per day||$45 poker bonus||$50 poker bonus|
|100 points per day||$75 poker bonus||$100 poker bonus|
As an added incentive to grind, PartyPoker will award you with an extra cash bonus if you qualify for a bonus 12 weeks in a row.
