The World Poker Tour and 888poker are teaming up to bring online players a brand new 28 event, $3 million guaranteed WPTDeepStacks Online series to close out the year. The festival takes place from November 28 - December 20 with buy-ins ranging from $55 up to $5,200. Everything gets started this Sunday, November 28 with the $525 buy-in Opening Event and its $200,000 guarantee. “The World Poker Tour is excited to partner with 888poker again to give players around the globe the opportunity to take down a WPTDeepStacks title,” said WPT Global Tour Management Vice President Angelica Hael. Everything will culminate with the $1,000,000 guarantee WPTDeepStacks Main Event with a $1,050 buy-in. The Main Event offers players a number of Day 1 flights with the ability to play in multiple Day 1s, should a player not make Day 2 on their first shot. Other highlights of the festival include the $525 PKO 8-Max with a $100,000 guarantee, a $5,200 buy-in Super High Roller with a $200,000 guarantee, and the 888 branded Crazy 8 that also comes with a $200,000 buy-in. “This will be another fabulous festival for 888poker and WPT,” said Dominik Nitsche, noted high roller and 888poker brand ambassador. “The beauty of events like this is that they provide a genuine opportunity for casual players to win big, starting from one-cent buy-ins, all from the comfort of their own home. With an increasing number of online poker players emerging over the last year, I’m looking forward to witnessing the exhilarating action and the next WPTDS champion emerge.” Nitsche touches on the fact that 888poker will be running their traditional satellite system for these events allowing players to start grinding their way to a tournament ticket for as little as $0.01. A look at the schedule notes that this online series is unlike most of 888poker’s offerings with the elevated buy-ins, most falling in the mid-high stakes range, making the ability for recreational players to satellite in all the more important. Additionally, 888poker is running daily freerolls, offering seats to Main Event satellites. The “no-ticket-needed” daily freerolls will provide players more than $200,000 in satellite and super-satellite tickets during the month. Six of the final tables will be streamed with poker commentary veterans David Tuchman and Nick Wealthall on the call. Plus, the online stream of the Main Event final table will bring out WPT’s Tony Dunst and Matt Savage to see who will be crowned the next WPTDS champion.
