The World Cup of Cards usually takes place at The Playground Poker Club in Montreal, Canada, but the 2021 edition is heading online to partypoker. It is the first time the World Cup of Cards has been hosted online, and everything points to it being an excellent series.
June 16 through July 8 are the dates to put into your diary if you want to become a World Cup of Cards champion. A handful of the festival’s events are showing in the partypoker lobby, and more will be added over the next few days.
The Grand Prix Knockout is one tournament ready and waiting for you to buy into. It kicks off the World Cup of Cards and comes with a $55 buy-in and a $250,000 guaranteed prize pool. There are more than two dozen starting flights between June 16 and June 24, spread across several time zones to give every partypoker player, not only Canadians, the chance to compete on the big stage.
A cut-price Mini Grand Prix Knockout runs alongside its larger cousin. It features a $50,000 guaranteed prize pool for a buy-in of only $5.50.
Those of you looking for even juicier prize pools need to look no further than the World Cup of Cards Main Event and Mini Main Event.
The Main Event is the larger of the two in terms of both buy-in and guaranteed. Buying into the Main Event direct will see $1,100 removed from your partypoker, although there is a $1 million guarantee on the prize pool, so replenishing your bankroll with a more substantial sum will happen if you navigate your way into the money places.
partypoker knows many of its customers are big football fans, so are running the Main Event’s final table on July 8, which means it does not clash with any of the European Championships fixtures. How cool of them is that?
WCC #06 Mini Main Event is a $109 buy-in affair where partypoker guarantees no less than $200,000 will be won.
Win Your Way Into the World Cup of Cards Main Event From $0.01
Of course, there are not many players who can just hand over $1,100 to play in a poker tournament, no matter how big the first place prize is. This is why partypoker is running a plethora of satellites for the Main Event, satellites that guarantee at least 20 Main Event seats will be won each week.
These satellites start with a ridiculously low buy-in of a single cent, making the World Cup of Cards Main Event accessible to all.
There is the option to spend tournament dollars to enter any of the tournaments on the schedule, too. Tournament dollar satellites run frequently throughout the day and award the virtual currency instead of seats to specific tournaments. These T$ can be used for any tournament, satellite, or sit & go game partypoker offers, giving you even more flexibility over the tournaments you play.
