0
The World Poker Tour has partnered with the Natural8 for the WPT Asia Online running October 3 - 22.

Poker players in Asian markets are about to get the opportunity to play for their share of World Poker Tour glory – and $100 million HKD in guaranteed prize pools – thanks to the tour’s partnership with Natural8.

WPT Asia Online is a 22-event series, running from October 3 – 22 featuring tournaments which are restricted to players in Asian markets and includes various game formats, multiple leaderboards, and the single biggest online poker tournament guarantee in the region’s history.

The WPT Asia Main Event has a $10 million HKD guarantee and a $10,000 HKD buy-in. There are 22 starting flights beginning on October 18 with the final day scheduled for October 25.

There are also National Championship events for Vietnam, Korea, Philippines, Taiwan, Cambodia, Japan, and Macau. The buy-in and guarantee for each of these events is in the host country’s currency and the eventual champion of each event also earns a WPT Passport valued at HK$23,000.

Three separate leaderboards, each covering a single week of play, will give players the opportunity to earn points for their home country. The top 10 players for each country have their total count towards the leaderboard and players who earn at least one leaderboard point for the top-performing country will then play in freeroll tournaments with prizes of $50,000 HKD, $50,000 HKD, and $100,000 HKD.
