The World Poker Tour began its stop in Vienna, Austria, last week, but the biggest and baddest event is still to come from the festival. Taking place March 12-17, 2015, the €3,300 Main Event will attract plenty of big names in poker to the Montesino Poker Club for a competitive affair and see the next WPT champion crowned.
Day 1a of the Main Event will be on March 12, and the second starting flight will take place the following day on March 13. Players will be allowed one reentry per day, and the event will conclude on March 17 with a featured webcast of the action. Each participant will begin with 30,000 in tournament chips. Levels will be 60 minutes long on Day 1 and 90 minutes long on Day 2-4. On Day 5, the final day of the event, the levels will revert back to 60 minutes in length.
The last time the WPT made a trip to Vienna on the main tour was in April of 2012 during Season X. Morten Christensen from Denmark topped a field of 396 entries to earn the €313,390 top prize.
For those who may not be so fortunate to make a deep run in the Main Event, there will still be plenty of money to be won in the €6,000 High Roller that will take place March 14-15. If that's a little too pricy for your liking, a €220 Accumulator Turbo will run March 14-15 with three different starting heats.
Outside of the tournaments, players can dive into their favorite cash games throughout the festival, with Texas hold'em, Omaha, seven-card stud, and others available.
