The 2019 WSOP is around the corner. And it is already shaping up to be the best tournament yet.
For decades, WSOP has reigned supreme. However, that’s about to change. PartyPoker Live Tour is coming to Las Vegas at Aria Resort and Casino and will run concurrently with WSOP. The highlight of the tournament is the $5 million guaranteed Main Event.
PartyPoker is trying to increase its market share by venturing into the US market. 2019 WSOP players who will not be playing a full schedule, for the first time in WSOP history, will have another equally lucrative tournament to grind, albeit for one weekend only.
PartyPoker Tournament or the WSOP?
As mentioned earlier, PartyPoker Live Tour is coming to Las Vegas during the WSOP and the highlight event is the $10,300 buy-in Main Event which has a $5 million guaranteed prize pool.
From a blog entry by the poker Titan, the tournament will have two Day Ones and Poker players will only have one entry per day. The final table is set to commence on July 2 which will culminate in an exclusive invite-only Players Party at the Venue. However, the details of the party have not been released.
John Duthie, the president of PartyPoker live, said: “The partnership with ARIA in Vegas is a significant step marking the first time PartyPoker LIVE has hosted a tournament in the United States. The poker team at ARIA is well known for being genuinely passionate about the game. We believe they see things the same way we do and that it’s not all business, it is about listening to players and growing the game.”
Sean McCormack, Director of Poker Operations at Aria, was also on the record saying, “We’re looking forward to MILLIONS making its debut this summer at the resort. Our team is excited to add an event of this magnitude to our extensive summer schedule.”
Can PartyPoker Live Tour compete with 2019 WSOP?
Well, without a doubt, WSOP is the best annual poker tournament and each day at the WSOP is a big day. However, the 2019WSOP may have a slow weekend during the Partypoker Live tournament.
It is worth noting that there are no other major tournaments during that weekend. The day one of the Partypoker tournament will coincide with the final table of the $50,000 Poker Players Championship WSOP event. Participants of the WSOP event will, however, get an opportunity to enter the tournament on Day Two.
