WPT Tournament of Champions seats worth $15,000 to be won as well as other prizes
Following two weeks of PLO tournaments, the first major NLH events within the WPT World Online Championships schedule begin this week, with an extra $150,000 in value being given to players, as the first of five Mike Sexton WPT Champions Cup events begins this Saturday, August 1.
There are 12 championship events included within the WPT World Online Championships; five of these are WPT Champions Cup events. The champions will win a $15,000 added value ticket to the next WPT Tournament of Champions (TOC), presented by Baccarat Crystal. Their name will be engraved on the Mike Sexton WPT Champions Cup trophy and they will receive a replica version. They will also join the exclusive WPT Champions Club.
An extra $5,000 in value will be added for all TOC-qualifying events, as the winners’ travel and accommodation will be paid for by partypoker and WPT.
Each $15,000 WPT TOC ticket will now be added to the already guaranteed prize pool, giving players even more value.
