WPT500 at partypoker

The World Poker Tour and partypoker have again joined forces to bring you the WPT500 festival. The MILLIONS Online series is in the process of winding down, but the WPT500 series is revving up with the first event starting on March 7.

March 7 through March 23 are the dates the WPT500 festival takes place online at partypoker. There are 25 numbered events on the schedule, two of which boast $1 million guaranteed prize pools.

The first of these WPT tournaments with a seven-figure guarantee is the WPT500. It features nine starting flights, each costing $530 to enter. Day 1A commences at 8:05 p.m. GMT on March 7 and sees those who enter battle it out until only 15% of the field remains. Those who have even a solitary chip in front of them at this time progress to Day 2 on March 15, doing so knowing they are in the money.

Day 1B-1H shuffle up and deal at 8:05 p.m. between March 8-14. The final flight is a turbo Day 1 at the slightly earlier time of 5:05 p.m. GMT on March 15. It follows the same format as the other flights, except it plays to a seven-minute clock instead of 12-minutes.

Late registration is open until the end of the 12th level and only a single re-entry per flight is permitted. You can play in as many Day 1s as you wish, but only your largest stack goes through with you to Day 2 if you progress more than once.

Last year’s WPT500 attracted a bumper crowd of 4,828 entries and it was Fabio Sperling who was the last player standing. Sperling took home $281,125 after a four-handed deal that involved Walter Treccarichi ($235,666), Markus Prinz ($202,012), and Christopher Putz ($187,289)

The WPT500 Knockout has one less flight than the WPT500 and has a slightly different blind structure, but the clock is still 12-minutes for the standard flights and seven-minutes for the final turbo flight.
