Champions Club Immortality For Four Winners

Five of the WPT World Online Championships winners become members of the exclusive Champions Club. This comes with a $15,000 seat to the WPT Tournament of Champions, plus travel and accommodation thrown in.

The $3,200 buy-in 6-Max, 8-Max, Mix-Max, and Knockout are the events to look out for.

The WPT World Online Championship Main Event is the fifth tournament where a Champions Club spot is available. This massive tournament costs $10,300 to enter and features a $10 million guaranteed prize pool! $10,300 is out of the constraints of most players’ bankrolls, so partypoker is running a plethora of satellites for it.

These PP LIVE Passport satellites represent some superb value. Their final costs $1,040 to enter, but you can play you way into them from only $4.40. Each $1,050 final has 10x $10,000 PP LIVE Passports guaranteed. Win one and use it for the WPT World Online Championships Main Event and partypoker will waive the $300 tournament fee, meaning you’re playing rake free.

It’s not only about the big buy-in events either because there’s a tournament for everyone. WPT and partypoker have created smaller versions of most events, approximately 10 and 100-times cheaper than the Championship event.

partypoker isn’t available in the United States, but it’s worthwhile heading somewhere where it is just to compete in the WPT World Online Championships.
