Don't Miss the Incredible Value in WPT Global's New Sunday Majors
Table Of Contents
WPT Global, the official online poker site of the World Poker Tour (WPT), launched a trio of Sunday Majors a fortnight ago, and it is safe to say that they are ridiculous value for tournament grinders. Not only do they come with juicy guaranteed prize pools, but the $110 buy-in $50,000 guaranteed Sunday Slam has sported significant overlays during its first two weeks on the site.
"upfast44" took down the inaugural Sunday Slam after it by $20,000! The champion turned their $110 investment into an impressive $15,201, which included $3,737 worth of bounty payments, as the Sunday Slam is an exciting PKO event. With bounties included, nobody at the eight-handed final table took home less than $2,132, which is not a bad day at the office for only a few hours' "work."
Last week, on April 9, the $50,000 Sunday Slam attracted a larger crowd of 398 entries, but that still meant an overlay of more than $10,000. "淡墨如烟" was the main beneficiary of WPT Global making up the prize pool's shortfall because they headed into the night with the title of champion and a cool $11,914 to show for their efforts.
It isn't only the $110 buy-in $50,000 guaranteed Sunday Slam that has WPT Global tournament players tingling with excitement, but the other two Sunday Majors, too. Costing $330 and guaranteeing $20,000 is the Grand Slam, while the Mini Slam may only command an $11 buy-in, but the kind folks at WPT Global have set the guarantee at $8,888! Last weekend's Mini Slam winner padded their WPT Global account with almost $2,200, which for an $11 investment is mightily impressive, to say the least.
Don't forget that if anyone manages to win all three of the aforementioned Sunday Majors within a 30-day period, WPT Global awards them $100,000!
Climb the Weekly MTT Leaderboards; Bag a WPT Prime Passport
WPT Global launched its Weekly MTT Leaderboards two weeks ago, and more than 200 players have benefited from the leaderboards' prizes. The leaderboards are split into two: one for tournaments costing $26.99 or less, and a High Roller board for $27+ buy-in events.
You earn leaderboard points for every WPT Global tournament you play, apart from those with "satellite," "ticket," or "qualifier" in their title. WPT Global boosts your points tally if you finish in the top six of a qualifying tournament, meaning the leaderboards reward not only quantity but quality.
