WPTDS Online 2021 – 888poker London Stage Schedule

From April 18th to 26th, 888poker will host WPTDeepStacks London, which has been moved from offline to online. What awaits players in the series, why it should not be missed and how you can get into tournaments through satellites – read our material.

How WPTDeepStacks Started: Historical Background

WPTDeepStacks has never been a stand-alone series – it first appeared in 2014 as a multi-day offline tournament that takes place almost every month in different cities around the world as part of the WPT.

The first WPTDS with a $ 1.1K buy-in and a $ 200K guarantee took place at Ocean’s Eleven Casino (San Diego) and collected 520 entries, overriding the $ 304,400 guarantee. Then the winner was Justin Porter – he received $ 85,027 in prize money.

From 2014 to 2020, the WPTDS was held 127 times – both as an independent tournament and as part of the country’s WPT. The venues over the years have been the United States (most of the WPTDS), Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal and other countries.

In 2020, the tournament went completely online for the first time – the partypoker room became the first platform. That WPTDS Online took place in May 2020 and included 13 flights with $ 2.1K buy-ins and a $ 3M guarantee. As a result, the tournament collected 3,554 entries and covered the $ 554K guarantee. Englishman Jareth East became the winner – he received $ 557,658.

In 2021, 888poker received a contract to host WPTDS online with a total guarantee of more than $ 3M (previously it was the organizer of several WPT offline tournaments), and the tournament expanded to a mini-series of several events. According to the plan for April, from the 18th to the 26th, three skins of the room should become the venue for three stages:

  • London Online – for an international client (com)
  • Italy Online – for Italy (it)
  • Iberia Online – for Portugal and Spain (es / pt)

Each stage will have 16 events, but since only residents of these countries will be able to take part in the last two, below we will pay special attention to the international stage – London Online.
