As poker operators continue to cancel live events in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, the World Poker Tour and partypoker have teamed up to offer an online WPT series for the first time in the 18-year history of the tour. The WPT Online Series consists of 10 events, including a WPT Main Event with a $5,000,000 guarantee and a seat in the WPT Tournament of Champions. [ptable zone="888poker"][ptable zone="Party Poker NJ"][ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"] "It is an honour for us to host the first ever WPT Online Series. We are always looking for ways to bring exciting, high profile MTTs to our players and the World Poker Tour is up there amongst the most prestigious brands in poker," said Tom Waters, partypoker Managing Director. "The online festival promises to be huge and with a WPT Tournament of Champions seat on offer, it’s a really exciting opportunity for partypoker players." The schedule also includes a WPT500 and WPTDeepstacks event as well as a High Roller and Super High Roller event. The total guarantee across all 10 events is $15,000,000. "WPT and partypoker are proud to break new ground for both of our brands with the first WPT Online Series festival," said Adam Pliska, WPT CEO. "Players from around the globe can look forward to the opportunity to play in World Poker Tour events from the comfort of their homes at all buy-in levels." The Main Event The Main Event, which has a $3,200 buy-in and a $5,000,000 guarantee, has five starting flights with the first three running on three consecutive Sundays, May 10, 17, 24. The final two starting flights run on Monday, May 25 include a standard structure and a turbo structure. Players who make it through a Day 1 flight will play Day 2 on Monday, May 25 with the final day scheduled for Tuesday, May 26. Players start with 100,000 chips and levels last 20 minutes and can re-enter once per starting flight. WPT500 One of five events with a $1,000,000 guarantee, the WPT500 just might offer the best value of the 10 events. There is a single $530 starting flight each day from May 10 until May 17. On Monday, May 18, there are two starting flights, one with a standard structure and a last chance Day 1 starting flight with a turbo structure. All survivors return to play down to a winner on Monday, May 18. Players start with a 100,000 stack and levels are 15 minutes long each. Players can re-enter each starting flight one time. High Roller Scene It would be almost impossible to host a tournament series today with having some events catering to the high rollers. This series does exactly that with a $10,300 High Roller and a $25,500 Super High Roller event on the schedule. The Super High Roller event runs on Thursday, May 21, and players start with 100,000 stack and can re-enter a single time. Levels are 15 minutes long. The High Roller starts on Sunday, May 24, and ends on Monday, May 25. Again, players are afforded a single re-entry. Starting stack is 100,000 and levels are 20 minutes long.

Eight more World Poker Tour Online series titles were handed out over the weekend including one for the UK’s Elliott Peterman who survived the multi-flight 6-Max Weekender to take home nearly a quarter-million-dollar payday. Sixty-nine players made it to the final stage of $1 million guaranteed Event #33 ($2,100 6-Max Weekender) but it was Peterman who outlasted the star-studded field to take home the $235,508 first-place prize. Also notching six-figure scores were Italy's Eugenio Peralta who won $174,816 as the runner-up and Alexandros Kolonias who picked up $125,649 for finishing in third. Russia’s Alexandr Trofimov topped the lower buy-in Event #33 ($215 6-Max Weekender) to take home a WPT title and the $74,938.20 first-place prize. Nicolas Yunis also turned his $215 buy-in into a healthy five-figure score cashing in for $56,589.60 as the runner up. Australia’s Luke Martinelli added $42,997 to his bankroll with a third-place finish. A pair of non-NLHE tournaments actually incurred some slight overlays for the series. First, Muriel Figueredo took full advantage of a $12,500 overlay in Event #35 ($1,575 Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo) by besting the 125-entry field for the $50,381.20 first-place prize. Erik Tamm wrapped up as the runner-up which was good for $34,000. Mikko Alho grabbed third place and $24,000 for his efforts. Event #35 ($162 Mini Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo) just barely missed the target as the 265-entry field came up just $250 short of the $40,000 guarantee. Emrah Yildiz rose to the top to claim the $9,400 first-place prize while Quentin Krueger settled for second and $6,200. Antti Suominen ended up in third place and picked up $4,407.92. A pair of former #1-ranked PocketFivers were in position to take home a WPT title in Event #36 ($1,050 Mix-Max Tubro) as Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard and Steven ‘SvZff’ van Zadelhoff battled it out in the top three. However, both ended up falling to Stewart Kirby who closed out the tournament and picked up $38,037.86 as the winner. van Zadelhoff earned $25,670 as the runner-up while Leonard added $18,120 to his over $9.7 million in career online cashes. Markus Pohl was the last man standing in Event #38 ($530 6-Max Turbo Bounty) having survived the 638-entry field and banking the $22,387.82 first-place prize. Add to that another $27,239.31 in bounties and Pohl wrapped up the weekend with a total score of $49,627.13. Finishing right behind him was Alessandro Valli who earned $22,355.83 and an additional $5,985.36 in bounties as the runner-up. Viliyan Petleshkov fell in third place which was good for $16,817.38 and an additional $5,257.81 in bounties.
