Party Poker Reschedules Event; Now Coincides with WSOP Main Event

party-poker-table-screenshotThe World Series of Poker is in full swing and in just a few weeks the main event will begin. This is of course the most anticipated event of the series and should see a nice number of players competing. Most everyone in the industry does not schedule events at the same time as the WSOP Main Event as they know they will see a lower number of players than if the event took place at a different time. However, this fact does not seem to be stopping Party Poker from offering a WPT event during the starting days of the highly anticipated main event.

The WPT500 at ARIA Resort & Casino is presented by Party Poker and was recently rescheduled to begin on the 4th of July and continue until the 9th of July. This will place the event in the same time frame as the beginning of the main event. The WPT tournament will have a buy-in of $565 and will have $1 million in guaranteed prize money which make it appealing to players.

The Aria is currently offering lower buy-in events starting today that will be in competition with events at the Rio as well. The Aria events have buy-ins of $235 to $340 with additional events with buy-ins of $150 and $175. Deepstacks, bounties and more will be offered at the Rio.

Once July 1st rolls around, the Aria will be hosting daily super satellites two times a day. These satellites will take place until the event begins on the 4th of July. During the series, the Aria will host a PLO tournament and two 2-7 Triple Draw events. A ladies event, senior’s event and two Open Face Chinese Shootouts are also on the schedule.

Party Poker is already offering satellites so you can earn a prize package worth $1,700 to compete in the WPT event. Included in the prize package is the tournament entry, accommodations and spending money. The satellites start at just $1, making it easy for players to compete for minimal cost.
