What's New about WPT Online?
Even though partypoker has some problems that affect the players in the room, the Rob Yong team cannot be denied having their own vision for the site's development. It is visible in the approach of organizing branded tournament events, which was implemented about a year ago (with the Monster Series).
The WPT World Online Championships will be held from August 12 to September 13, 2021, with a $15,000,000 guarantee across 22 events.
There is, once again, an unwillingness to chase large prize pools and inflate the schedule. At the same time, series events are not the same as ordinary tournaments. Of course, re-entries will be restricted to 1-2.
However, for events with large buy-ins (17 of them have entries ranging from $215 to $2,100) to cover the announced guarantees, the organizers chose to add a high number of Day 1s to the structure of all MTTs (Mini Opener, for example, has 58 of them!). Moreover, 9 MTTs feature a non-standard table 7-max format.

The buy-in and guarantee for the main event were cut in half this year. Two side events suffered a similar fate. Surprisingly, PartyPoker does not seem to care that their 2021 main event will overlap with similar events such as WSOP Online and OSS Cub3d XII.
The WPT World Online Championships Main Event: $5M GTD for $5,300 features four starting flights - from August 29 to September 13.
Right now, you can qualify for one of the Day 1A. The room holds the final satellites with a 20-ticket guarantee on Sundays. You can get into them by following the steps below:
- Centroll for $0.01 - 30 tickets for $4.4 in prizes.
- Phase 1 for $4.4.
- Phase 2 for $22.
- Phase 3 for $109.
In the first two stages, 20% of the remaining players advance. In the third, the game goes on until the TOP-3.
WPT Pro Hunt
The series' unique non-standard one-day event begins on August 13 at 21:00. Thirteen PRO players, lead by Patrick Leonard and Isaac Hexton, will compete in the $33 WPT Pro Hunt ($30,000 guaranteed).
The tournament winner will get a unique trophy as well as a ticket to the Main. In addition to the regular bounty, attendees will get an extra prize in the form of a Phase 3 ticket for knocking out famous players.
In the following month, we'll find out how well the players are performing in this format, which is unlike any previous tournament series structure, especially with concurrent events from competitors. The existence and size of overlays will, as usual, be the main indicators of popularity.
