Asian poker players gear up as one of the most awaited World Poker Tours is about to begin! The WPT glory in partnership with Natural8 has a $100 million HKD in guaranteed prize pools. Natural8 is one of Asia’s most popular online gaming platforms that offers a varied number of games. Natural8 is known for the number of satellite events and the major Asian tournaments on their player-friendly platform.
The WPT Asia Online is a 22-event series, beginning from 3 October to 22 October, mainly featuring tournaments which are restricted to players in Asian markets. The series includes various game formats, multiple leaderboards, and the single biggest online poker tournament guarantee in the region’s history. The WPT Asia Main Event has a $10 million HKD guarantee with a $10,000 HKD buy-in. There will also be National Championship events for Philippines, Taiwan, Cambodia, Vietnam, Korea, Japan, and Macau.
The buy-in and guarantee for each of these events will be in the host country’s currency and the eventual champion of each event also earns a WPT Passport valued at HK$23,000. The event will feature three separate leaderboards, each covering a single week of play. The top 10 players for each country will have their count towards the leaderboards, and the top-performing country will then play in freeroll tournaments with prizes of $50,000 HKD, $50,000 HKD, and $100,000 HKD.
