Last year, partypoker tried to compete for a place in the sun with competitors – in response to the Stadium Series and WSOP, the room rolled out a solid WPT WOC with a total guarantee of $ 100M. But this year, the Party decided that it wasn’t in terms of chances to fight WCOOP at PokerStars and WSOP Online at GGPOKEROK. Despite the fact that WPT WOC 2021 looks less attractive against their background, the series is worth your attention.
