Look no further than WPT Global if you want to delve into some action-packed online poker tournaments this summer. Running from July 20 through August 22, the WPT Summer Festival features 50 tournaments with combined guarantees in excess of $3.5 million!
The WPT Summer Festival shuffles up and deals for the first time on July 20 with The Opener, a $220 buy-in tournament with a cool $150,000 guaranteed prize pool. This multi-day tournament runs every Wednesday and Sunday until August 22, using a “Best Stack Forward” policy, meaning you can play in as many flights as you wish as you attempt to build a big stack for Day 2. Advance from more than one flight and you take your largest stack through with you; all other Day 2 stacks are forfeited.
Each flight of The Opener concludes when only 15% of the field remains.
Don’t worry if $220 is outside the constraints of your bankroll because there are cut-price satellites running around the clock. In addition, there is a Micro Opener running alongside it’s bigger brother, which comes with a $10,000 guaranteed prize pool for a $2 buy-in.
Other events to are sure to excite the poker community include the $220 buy-in $250,000 guaranteed Summer Showdown, the $220 buy-in $150,000 guaranteed PLO Championship, a $220 buy-in $300,000 guaranteed Summer PKO, and a pair of Main Events that every WPT Global player wants to win.
