partypoker is proud to announce it is to sponsor the 2017 World Poker Tour Playground festival, which takes place at the Playground Poker Club between January 29 and February 15 and features a CAD $3,500 buy in Main Event that kicks off on February 10.
The partypoker Playground Winter Festival features 16 events with combined guarantees of almost CAD $2 million, including the eagerly anticipated WPT Playground Main Event that has a CAD $1 million guaranteed prize pool and awards its champion a coveted championship belt that would not look out of place in WWE.
In addition to some of Canada’s finest poker players and a host of partypoker pros and ambassadors, the WPT Playground Main Event should be awash with online qualifiers thanks to the extensive list of satellites being held at partypoker.
Feeder tournaments costing between $22 and $109 will appear in the partypoker lobby and they feed into the weekly $530 buy in WPT Playground Satellite where three WPT Playground Main Event seats, each worth CAD $3,500, are guaranteed to be won.

Each of the feeders and the weekly $530 satellite are played to the same blind structure as the WPT uses so you can hone your skills in preparation for your trip to Canada and ensure that the cream rises to the top as the structure allows plenty of play and gives you lots of room to manoeuvre, plus you can re-enter twice if your initial bite at the cherry doesn’t go to plan!
The Playground Poker Club has a glowing reputation for hosting amazing tournaments and this one is going to be no different, you simply can’t miss it, and with feeders starting at $22 (which you can win your way into for one cent) there is no reason not to try and qualify for the WPT Playground Main Event at partypoker.
