The official WPT website states, “This will be the biggest online series ever run by partypoker.”

The two highlight events will be Event #10: $25,500 WPT World Championship High Roller and Event #7: $10,300 WPT World Championship Main Event, each assuring a hefty $10 million in prize money. Another one sporting $5 million GTD is $102K WPT World Championship Super High Roller will surely turn heads. Other four WPT Champions Club tournaments each have a $3,200 buy-in and a $3 million guarantee over a variety of NLHE formats.

In a press release Adam Pliska, CEO of the WPT said, “The WPT World Online Championships brings together the World Poker Tour and partypoker together once more for what will be the largest series in both of our histories. The spectacle on display during the WPT Online Series will be heightened once more come July with another major milestone for the World Poker Tour. Five WPT Champions crowned in a single series is a first for the WPT in 18 seasons and we look forward to welcoming them all into the WPT Champions Club.”

For each of the Main Events, there is a Mini and a Micro version of the events. The entire schedule is packed with NLH, Knockout events, PLO, PLO Hi-Lo as well as heads-up tournament. Managing Director of partypoker, Tom Waters said, “I’m delighted that we have been able to partner with the WPT to revive the WPT World Championships and bring the series online for the first time. We want to give the festival more of a live event feel, so the tournaments will be structured as such, including single re-entry for all No Limit Hold’em event, freezeouts, limited late registration, and limited Day 1’s. Due to popular demand, players will be able to see each other’s real names at the tables.”
