PartyPoker Launches Five Stop WPT National UK Tour
Next month PartyPoker and the WPT are running a five stop tour around the UK starting at the Aspers Casino Westfield Stratford City.
This October PartyPoker and WPT are teaming together to run a five stop poker tour in the UK which will fall under the popular World Poker Tour National series.
The first event is to take place at the Aspers Casino Westfield Stratford City from October 24th-27th.
The other four events have not yet been announced by they are expected to include Aspers casinos in Newcastle, Northampton and Milton Keynes.
The first event is the WSPT Aspers Accumulator and it is a brand new live poker tournament format which gives players the chance to win some series money. There will be three Day 1 flights each one costing £180+£20 to enter and players may re-enter each day. If a player makes it through to Day 2 from more than one flight then their stacks will be added together for Day 2.
However, it is possible to enter for far less than £200 thanks to a series of qualifiers being run by PartyPoker. It is possible to compete for a $1,000 package that awards two buy-ins and $380 spending money; there is also a $310 qualifier which only awards a seat.
