At Playground Poker Club, the attention is quickly shifting to the WPT Montreal. This landmark Event groups the WPT Main Tour, the WPT500 and the WPTDeepStacks together in a single tournament series for the very first time, kicking off the new 4-year partnership between WPT and partypoker LIVE.
The festival being only 6 weeks out, securing some seats early sounds like a good idea. Good planning results in good execution, so let’s take a look at how you can reduce your WPT Montreal expenses and boost your equity… let’s get you to the Main Event!
Qualify at Playground
For the WPT Montreal, Playground Poker Club brings back the 2-step system. It is simple and effective, and if you pay attention, you may even benefit from the occasional overlay!
On Sunday, September 9th and all Thursdays in September*
Buy-in – $100 + $10
Guarantee – 5 Step 2 Seats!
Step 1s are typically 3-table tournaments with unlimited re-entries, and once the guarantee is reached, the satellite pays nearly 1 in 5 players, as opposed to the usual 1 in 10 for most regular satellites. It is a great way to get to the last frontier for a few bags of peanuts.
On Sundays, September 16th, 23rd and 30th*
Buy-in – $530 + $30 (or a Step 2 ticket)
Guarantee – 2X WPT Montreal Main Event Seats
Step 2s are the stepping stones to the WPT Montreal Main Event. The ideal path is to get to them for the price of a Step 1, but you can also buy in directly and play it as you would a Mega Satellite. Once the guarantee is reached, just over 1 in 10 players are handed a ticket to the Main Event.
*More dates will be added as soon as the October calendar is published.
