WPT500 2021 is a 27-event online streak at partypoker with two Main Events …

Partypoker hosts the WPT500 Online Series from March 7-23. We have compiled detailed information on the schedule and WPT500 Main Events for you.

A brief history of the WPT500

For the first time, WPT500 took place offline in 2014 and until 2018 took place twice a year – first in Las Vegas and then in Nottingham. In 2018 and 2019, WPT500 events were also held in Montreal, Los Angeles, London and Barcelona.

WPT500 did not immediately become a series of many tournaments – at first it was a single multi-day event with many days off (like The Venom on PokerKing).

The live WPT500 was popular – in 6 years of its existence, only 4 stages out of 16 passed with overlays, on average, 2,750 entries were recruited in each stage. The largest number of participants and the size of the prize pool were in Las Vegas in 2015 – then, due to 5,113 entries, the series collected a prize pool of $ 2,556,500.

However, due to covid, hosting massive live tournaments became dangerous to the health and lives of participants and organizers, so in 2020 WPT500 was moved online.

The transition made the series more accessible to players from all over the world – already the first WPT500 Online took place in May 2020 without an overlay: 4,828 entries provided it with a prize pool of $ 2,414,000. There were six tournaments with buy-ins ranging from $ 55 to $ 3.2K – partypoker has already scheduled 27 events for March 2021, where the most expensive buy-in is already $ 5.2K. Let’s take a closer look at the schedule.

WPT500 Online Tournament Schedule 2021

During the series, 25 NLH tournaments and two PLO tournaments are planned, half of them will be held in knockout format. All events start at the same time interval – from 20:05 Moscow time to 23:05 Moscow time. All tournaments will be available through satellites with buy-ins from $ 7.70 to $ 530 – they appear in the lobby of each event closer to the day it starts.

The qualifying days will open with two tournaments – $ 530 WPT500 $ 1M Gtd and $ 55 Super50 $ 250K Gtd – which will begin on March 7 at 11:05 pm Moscow time.
