November 23, 2022 Tournaments & Cash Games
Live tournament newbies, seniors, and poker fans from across the US will be taking part in the year’s WPT World Championship courtesy of free-play subscription site, ClubWPT.
With the final qualifier concluding on November 13, the 56th and final ClubWPT player booked their flight to Las Vegas. Of those who won a ClubWPT passport, 27 have a ticket for the $10,400 World Championship.
As well as winning their buy-in, the 27 qualifiers get a free stay at the Wynn Las Vegas, $1,000 for travel expenses, and the opportunity to enjoy a variety of off-the-felt activities.
ClubWPT qualifiers to get VIP treatment
The remaining 29 ClubWPT qualifiers get access to other special events in Vegas. 22 of them will play in the $2 million guaranteed WPT Prime Championship. As well as entry to the $1,100 Prime Championship, these qualifiers also won a free stay at the Wynn, travel expenses, and WPT merchandise.
The final seven ClubWPT qualifiers don’t get direct access to the World or Prime Championships. However, what they do get is one of two experiences in Las Vegas. Five qualifiers will take part in the Tony Dunst WPT Battleship Bounty tournament where the winner gets a $10,400 World Championship seat.
Two ClubWPT qualifiers will sit down in a special six-handed home game. The qualifier who lasts the longest wins a free seat in the WPT World Championship. That’s an impressive prize to shoot for. However, a spot in the home is a great prize on its own.
Why? Because it’s the Phil Ivey Home Game. The latest recruit to Team WPT will host the six-handed sit & go on December 6. As well as the opportunity of a lifetime to play against Phil Ivey, the qualifiers will square off against WPT ambassadors Andrew Neeme and Brad Owen, as well as WPT anchor Lynn Gilmartin.
WPT World Championship fairy tales could be written
The team at WPT HQ pledged to make the 20th anniversary World Championship the biggest ever and ClubWPT qualifiers will help deliver on that promise.
“We’re always excited to offer ClubWPT members unique experiences and promotions. It is nice to be able to grant our online qualifiers from across the nation with major live event opportunities at the World Championship,” said WPT VP of Online Services Jeremy Clemons.
Many of the ClubWPT qualifiers have a chance to write their own Moneymaker stories at the 2022 WPT World Championship. Indeed, because it’s a free-play subscription service, most ClubWPT users are recreational players.
That’s certainly the case for Bruce Ramoth and Mark Symons. Ramoth will be playing in his first ever live poker tournament when he antes up in the WPT World Championship. ClubWPT Player of the Year, Mark Symons, also has a chance of becoming part of poker folklore if he wins the $10,400 event at the ripe old age of 86.
Poker stars from around the world will be landing in Sin City for a shot at WPT World Championship glory next month. However, when the action begins on December 12, ClubWPT members have a chance to write their own fairy tale endings.
