Poker players are always looking for value. Well, here’s value that will be hard to top – partypoker presents the WPT500 at ARIA in Las Vegas, July 4-9, 2014. It’s a brand new low buy-in WPT experience at one of the great properties in the world, ARIA Resort $ Casino. It’s a $500+65 buy-in where there’s a $1M prize pool guarantee with a minimum of $200k going to the winner!
The WPT500 is an exciting new event with a new tournament format – you only have to play two days to take the title (and in one day if you opt to play the turbo on July 9! Yes, that’s right. On each of the five starting days (July 4-8 as well as the turbo on the morning of July 9), the top 5% of the field advances to the final on July 9. So, if 400 players would enter each day July 4-8, 20 players per day would advance to the final on July 9.
So Here’s Question I’ve Been Hearing A Lot…
Can you play partypoker presents: WPT500 at ARIA and the main event of the WSOP (which has starting days on July 5-6-7)? YES! Here’s how – If you opt to play in the WSOP main event on July 5, you can play the WPT500 at ARIA on July 4, 6, 7, or 9. If you play the WSOP main event on July 6, you can play the WPT500 at ARIA on July 4, 5, 7, or 9. WPT Executive Tour Director Matt Savage said it best, “We are NOT competing with the WSOP. We are providing players that may not be able to afford a $10k buy-in the opportunity to play in a great event at a wonderful property in Las Vegas and those that wish to play in both events can easily do so.”
Here are the details of the WPT500 at ARIA:
1) There are five Day 1’s – July 4-8 (tournament starts at noon each day with registration open until 4:30 pm). Day 2 is July 9.
2) Players who play multiple Day 1’s can carry their biggest stack forward to Day 2.
3) On July 9th at 9 am, there is a special last chance turbo with 15 minute levels.
How the WPT500 @ARIA works:
On each Day 1, 5% of the field will advance to the finals on July 9 (but twice that many get paid each day). This means that to win $200k or more, you don’t have to play for 4-5 days to win. You only have to play a two-day tournament (and you could win that much in one day if you play the turbo heat on July 9)!
If the guaranteed prize money isn’t enough for you, here’s further VALUE:
A) We are expecting at least 100 online qualifiers (online qualifying options include a $1700 WPT500 package ($500+65 buy-in, $500 in travel & expense money, & four nights accommodation & hospitality at ARIA) or a $500+65 buy-in only package. For online details, go to PartyPoker.com
B) There are land based satellites at ARIA daily ($125 Supers).
C) Special room rates for participants at ARIA.
D) Exclusive qualifier party at HAZE nightclub @ARIA (10:30 pm on July 5).
E) Everyone at the final table gets an entry into the WPT500 at ARIA in 2015.
F) The winner also gets a $2k package for the WPT500 in the UK in November.
And finally, a note to those who haven’t had such a good summer on the felt – the WPT500 at ARIA is a wonderful “get-out” tournament you don’t want to miss. The fireworks of the WPT500 at ARIA starts on July 4. I’ll see you there!
