The WPT World Championship might still be a couple of months away but that hasn't stopped PartyPoker from putting together a comprehensive satellite schedule.
Tasked with trying to make this the largest championship festival in the tour's history, the online poker site will be offering a slew of packages worth $18,000 on a daily basis. Indeed, from as little as $2 payers can gain access to the $5 million guaranteed event and line up alongside many of the best players in the world.Included in every satellite winner's package will be entry in to the $15,400 Main Event, $1,350 towards travel expenses and six nights in a luxury hotel complete with exclusive player hospitality. On top of the daily and weekly satellite program, PartyPoker will also be offering WPT World Championship freerolls for those who are keen to parlay nothing into something.Commenting on the event, Mike Sexton said: "It’s big news that the WPT World Championship has moved east to Atlantic City for the first time in its history and that $5,000,000 is guaranteed meaning first place will take home at least $1,350,000. We thought we would find New Jersey’s Next Poker Millionaire on nj.partypoker.com in January but we’ll also find one in April too!"
