On the updated schedule, there is a total of 26 events and 15 satellites with buy-ins ranging from $110 to $1,650, and a wide variety of formats to please all players. Let’s take a look at our 3 most handsome guarantees: the World Cup of Cards “Big 3.”
Event 8 – $200 + $20 Grand Prix Canada
The Grand Prix Canada returns to Playground for the 4th time. This tournament presents an unbelievable buy-in/guarantee ratio. For $220, you have access to a half-a-million-dollar guarantee! Five online Day 1s and 12 live Day 1s all feed to a single Day 2 (January 27). The event concludes on Day 3 (January 28).
Event 17 – $1,500 + $150 WPTDeepStacks
The WPTDeepStacks, winner of the 4th Annual American Poker Awards Mid-Major Tournament Circuit of the Year, had its Playground debut just a month ago at the WPT Montreal. It will be back on our felts starting February 1 as the WCC 2019 Main Event, featuring three Day 1s. Its $750,000 guarantee is the largest of the festival, and the eventual Champion will go home with the heftiest first prize and the most bragging rights. Check the schedule for dates.
Event 21 – $1,000 + $100 Card Player Poker Tour
The CPPT is a series of live tournaments overseen by Card Player Media, publishers of the well-known and respected Card Player magazine. It has visited Playground on both previous editions of the World Cup of Cards. The $250,000 guarantee is sure to round up a nice crowd, which will be divided into two Day 1s. The event concludes on Day 2 (February 6).
If you want to play the Main Event for a fraction of the price, try our $165 + $15 WCC WPTDeepStacks Satellites. They run every Thursday, each with 3 seats guaranteed.
While the Grand Prix Canada and the WPTDeepStacks are Unlimited Re-entry events, the Card Player Poker Tour is a Single Re-entry per flight event. In addition to these same-day re-entries, you can play as many Day 1s as you want, online and live, whether you have previously qualified or not. Your best qualified stack will move forward.
The World Cup of Cards. January 20 to February 6. See you there!
