2021 World Series of Poker

2021 WPT Online Series Includes $3M GTD Main Event; Two Massive WPT500 Events

WPT Online Series

The World Poker Tour returns to partypoker this May for the WPT Online Series.

The WPT Online Series runs from May 14 until June 2, 2021.

The festival follows in the footsteps of the 2020 WPT Online Series and the hugely successful WPT World Online Championships, with a $3,000,000 GTD Main Event scheduled for this May.

Chris Donnachie, partypoker’s Head of Poker Room Management he was thrilled to have the opportunity to run the festival again.

"The inaugural WPT Online Series back in 2020 was the first purposely-designed WPT festival to be run fully online at partypoker and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to do this all over again.

"The Main Event is complimented by an extensive range of exciting events such as the Mini Main Event and not one, but two of the world-renowned WPT500 events."

partypoker Ambassador Patrick Leonard said: "There are a few series that are unmissable because of their prestige and the WPT Online Series absolutely falls into that category. Christian winning almost $1,000,000 last year stands out to me.

"The festival is amazing and you get to play for big, big money but with structures that give you good play."

Alias Changes

The site has been making last-minute preparations ahead of the festival, including an Alias change which will come into effect from Tuesday, May 11, 2021.

This is the second time partypoker has implemented an alias change, after players were required to change their aliases back in June 2019. Alias changes form part of partypoker's investment in game integrity, and is something that partypoker Director Vadim Soloveychik believes will ensure that the game is fair and safe for all players.

"Asking players to change their aliases is one of the important measures to keep the game fair and safe for all our players.

"I want to thank all the players who proactively report the new players’ tracking and game aid tools that appear on the market every now and then to our Game Integrity Team. Your proactive support means a lot to us and shows that we are doing the right thing."
