WPT NationalParty Poker players in the UK and Ireland have the opportunity to compete in a celebrity Sit & Go game during next week´s WPT National at Dusk till Dawn.

Next Thursday, the WPT National gets underway at the Dusk till Dawn poker club in Nottingham. The feature event during the five days of action is the $1 million guaranteed Main Event, and there will also be a strong line-up of side events plus the usual abundance of cash game action.

Not listed among the side-event schedule is a special WPT Celebrity 6-Max Sit & Go on Thursday 19th May. Three of the celebrities taking part are already known – Carl Froch, Mike Sexton and Tony Dunst. The other three seats around the table are reserved for Party Poker players in the UK and Ireland, who can win their seats in three special “Centroll” tournaments next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Win your Seat in the WPT Celebrity Sit & Go for Just $0.01 (Genuinely)

Plenty of times you see Party Poker advertising a major event with the message you can win your seat from just $0.01. Although this is true, it usually involves winning three or four more qualifiers after victory in the $0.01 game before you qualify for the target event.

On this occasion however, there will be three “Centroll” qualifiers played next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at 9:00pm (BST) with a seat in the WPT Celebrity Sit & Go awarded to the winner. Players will have to make their own way over to Nottingham to compete in Thursday´s live-streamed event, with the prizes for the top three players being:

  • 1st Place: A $530 Party Poker tournament ticket
  • 2nd Place: A $109 Party Poker tournament ticket
  • 3rd Place: A $22 Party Poker tournament ticket

The prizes may not be life-changing, but the opportunity to meet up with and play against Messers Froch, Sexton and Dunst will ensure that all three “Centrolls” are well supported. Registration to the “Centrolls” is now open for players in the UK and Ireland. You can find them in the Party Poker client under Live Events > Dusk till Dawn [DTD] > WPT [DTD].

Still Time to Qualify for $1,000,000 Guaranteed WPT National Main Event

With only a week to go until the WPT National Main Event, the online qualifiers at Party Poker are in full swing. Two $22.00 “feeder” sub-satellites are hosted on Party Poker every night at 7:00pm and 8:00pm (all times BST), both guaranteeing ten seats into the daily $109.00 buy-in satellite at 9:00pm – that guarantees ten seats in the $1,100 buy-in WPT National Main Event.

Players who win a seat in the target event have the option of playing Day 1A online at Party Poker on Thursday 19th May, or travelling to Nottingham to compete in Day 1B (Friday) or Day 1C (Saturday). Players who survive into Sunday´s Day 2 should be pretty certain of making their trip worthwhile financially, while the WPT National Main Event final table will be battled out on Monday 23rd May.

WPT500 Las Vegas Packages also Up for Grabs

At the same time as the qualifiers are ramping up for the WPT National, so are the qualifiers for the $1 million guaranteed WPT500 at the Aria in Las Vegas from June 27th to July 6th.
