Las Vegas, NV (April 20, 2023) – ClubWPT™ is going all out in anticipation of the 2023 WPT® World Championship festival at Wynn Las Vegas this December by offering a massive qualifier that will award $150,000 worth of WPT World Championship Passports and cash prizes.
“ClubWPT is an essential branch of the World Poker Tour® landscape, and as such, we sought to link the site and its members to our biggest event of the year,” said WPT CEO Adam Pliska. “We are proud to offer a chance to win a seat to the WPT World Championship at Wynn Las Vegas to all members of the WPT community.”
In 2022, the WPT World Championship made its debut at Wynn Las Vegas with 2,960 players creating a $29 million prize pool – smashing past the $15 million and setting WPT records in the process. The event returns to the Wynn in 2023 with the WPT World Championship running December 12-18.
Qualifying tournaments for the 300-player WPT World Championship Challenge finale on November 5 began on Sunday, April 16. The satellites, which each award 20 seats to the finale, will run twice monthly through October. The finale will award the top ten finishers with a $12,500 WPT World Championship Passport and a total of $25,000 in cash prizes to players placing 11th – 100th.
“The WPT World Championship Challenge is a tremendous opportunity for ClubWPT members to reach new heights,” said WPT VP of Online Services Jeremy Clemons. “With $150,000 in prizes, it will stand as one of the largest single-day tournaments in ClubWPT history!”
Last year, ClubWPT sent nearly 30 members to the WPT World Championship at Wynn Las Vegas to play in the $10,400 event and aims to top that mark this season. Along with an extraordinary poker experience, Passport winners were granted access to an exclusive VIP lounge and unique promotions.
