bestbet Brings the WPT Back to Jacksonville From Oct 26-Nov 14
Elsewhere on the schedule is the opening $400 No Limit Hold’em event with six opening flights and a $200,000 guarantee, as well as a $1,700 Mystery Bounty event that offers a guarantee of $300,000.
The series all leads up to the $5,000 Main Event from Nov. 10-14 with a $1,000,000 guarantee, but also featured on the schedule is the $400 Ladies Championship and a $580 Mega Satellite on Nov. 12. The satellite features $100 rebuys and it will award at least three packages to December’s WPT World Championship at Wynn Las Vegas.
This is the return of the WPT to Jacksonville for the first time since October of 2019, when Joshua Adkins outlasted a field of 349 to win $331,480 in the Main Event.
The popular First Coast cardroom has played host to WPT several times throughout the years — going back to the 2012 WPT Fall Poker Scramble that saw Noah Schwartz win what was a $3,500 Main Event at the time.
