New dates

For the second time in history, partypoker had to postpone a major tournament series.

The start of the WPT Online Series 2021 was postponed for two weeks and is now scheduled for May 14.

This was recently announced on Twitter by Rob Yong, after which such information was posted on the partypoker website.

By the way, another news was the announcement of the imminent change of nicknames by all the players of the room. The Briton noted in the comments that he considers it a good idea to do this once a year, giving players up to 90 days to make such a decision.

Why was the series postponed?

In the WPT World Online Championships in 2020, this development was dictated by the need to separate it in time from the WSOP Online Main Event. Now, the reasons for this decision were not announced, and we can only guess about them.

Yes, this May turned out to be very busy with tournament series, but by the 14th — the May Poker Series (MPS) will be close to completion, while the PKO Online Super Series and the WSOP Super Circuit Online Series will run until May 24 and 30, respectively. Another factor is: by this time, the winner of The Venom PKO $5M will already be known.

The postponement of the WPT Online Series 2021 was made not due to competitors' festivals but for some other reason.

Schedule and guarantees

After partypoker switched to a new format series in late 2020 (the first was the Monster Series) — with fewer events compared to previous years but a higher amount of guarantees, players noticed another trend.

The overall guarantee of festivals was no longer announced (the emphasis was on the Main Event), and the schedule appeared in the lobby gradually, and its full version could be found on the first day or even later.

WPT Online Series 2021 was no exception. A week before the start, players only know that the total number of events will be more than 26 (most likely up to 30), and the total guarantee will probably exceed the 10 million mark.

So far, only the schedule of multi-day events (guaranteeing almost $7,000,000) is known:

14-16 May 20:05 WPT #01 Mini Opener: $250K Gtd (2-Day Event, PKO) $109

However, all information about the Main Event is public now. Day 1A kicks off on May 23:

WPT #20 Main Event:

  • Guarantee: $3,000,000 (minimum 1,000 entries to cover the guarantee)

  • Late registration period: 9 levels
  • The final table will be streamed on Twitch and YouTube

WPT Online Series 2021 Main Event

Step satellites are already available for this tournament (3-6 daily).

  1. $0.01 – 15 tickets for Phase 1.

  2. $3.30 – 15 entries for Phase 2.

  3. $33 – 15 tickets for the final phase.

partypoker is going through difficult times: iPoker Network and 888Poker have already overtaken in terms of the number of games, but they are still more solid in tournament series.

Will the management be able to "pull" the room to higher places in the world ranking once again? This year will show.
