Partypoker Weekly: Play a Satellite and Win Your Way to the WPT National UK
Lots more happening this week at partypoker, as spelled out for you here in this installment of the partypoker Weekly.
Qualify for the WPT National UK Event
From now through October 13, players can win a seat into the WPT National UK event, a new, unique event presented by partypoker. The tournament will be held at Aspers Westfield Stratford, with three separate Day 1 flights each costing £200 to enter ($310). A special option available to players will allow them to play as many Day 1s as they wish while taking their stacks through to Day 2 should they make it through.
In other words, if a player were to play all three of the Day 1s and survive each day, that player would be able to combine all three stacks with which to begin Day 2. Its the "accumulator format" that was used to great success in the first event of The World Series of Poker Asia-Pacific earlier this year.
As mentioned, from now through October 13 partypoker is offering satellites in which players can win either a seat into the WPT National UK event (worth $310) or a special package that includes two Day 1 entries plus $380 spending money (worth $1,000 total).
Check the partypoker lobby for information about all of the many satellites on offer for the WPT National UK.
Four Players Chop the $200,000 Guaranteed Sunday
Every Sunday more than 1,000 players routinely take part in partypoker's flagship tourney, the $200K Guaranteed Sunday. This past Sunday saw 1,127 take part in the event, thus creating a total prize pool of $225,400. After 11 hours there were four players left to make a final table deal to chop up the remaining prize money, with MattSplatt then outlasting ShaneO19O heads-up to win the tournament and take away a nifty $26,670.30 for the effort.
A full recap of Sunday's final table action can be found over on the partypoker blog.
