The nights are growing longer, the temperature is dropping and the less said about the weather the better. Winter is here. Don’t worry, though, because PartyPoker has something to brighten up these cold times; the red-hot PartyPoker Championship (PPC) Winter Edition.
Running from December 25 through January 17, the PPC Winter Edition is the perfect remedy for those bitterly cold days and nights. The full schedule is hitting the PartyPoker client shortly, but satellites for the PPC Winter Main Event are there right now, waiting for you to turn a tiny investment into a shot at a $500,000 guaranteed prize pool.
Only days ago, Canada’s Sebastien Proulx triumphed in the MILLIONS Online KO Main Event, taking home an impressive $123,602 for his victory. Proulx won his way into the $1,050 buy-in Main Event via a $6.60 satellite, now it is time for you to follow in his footsteps.

The $530 buy-in $500,000 guaranteed PPC Winter Main Event features six Day 1s, the first of which shuffles up and deals at 19:05 GMT on December 25. Win your way into the Main Event, or buy in direct, and you’ll receive 500,000 chips to start your quest for glory. Should you dust off your stack before the end of the 12th level (they last 15-minutes), you can re-enter once.
Like many of our other major tournaments, Day 1s of the PPC Winter Main Event conclude when only 15% of the field remains in each flight. Those top 15% progress to Day 2 on January 16 with a min-cash locked up. The PPC Winter Main Event concludes with the nine-handed final table on January 17.

PPC Winter Main Event satellites are in the PartyPoker tournament lobby waiting for you to navigate your way through the satellite tree and win your way into the $500,000 guaranteed tournament.

The first of those no direct buy-in satellites shuffles up and deals at 20:05 GMT on November 20 and has no less than 10x $530 seats guaranteed.
