World Poker Tour hosted £1 million guaranteed WPT500 London Main Event will go live from March 23 – April 2. The first-ever online Day 1 took-off on March 11. Thanks to WPT and 888poker partnership.

For both, online and live, players have the option to enter directly for a buy-in of $565. Players can re-enter for an additional $565 till the tournament is open for late registration. Late registration closes at the end of level 8.

The online Day 1 started with a 15,000 stack, playing to a blind structure that increased every 15 minutes.

Online Day 1 WPT500

The online Day1 WPT500 was structured to culminate when 5% of the total number of buy-ins remain in the field. Players with chips in front of them at day-end progress to the live Day 2 at Aspers Westfield Stratford City. They will move ahead with $1,500 (£1,065) in prize money already locked up.

First top 8% of the field will get $1100 and next top 12% will get $900. The prize amount will get credited to their 888poker account within 48 hours of tournament’s end.

Players could play as many Day 1s as they wished even if they qualified for Day 2, but, they can only take the largest stack to the next Day.

Aspers Westfield Stratford is the venue for Day 2, on April 1. The champion will be declared on April 2 with the final table.

The live venues hosting the Day 1 World Poker Tour 500 are three casinos- Aspers Westfield Stratford City, the largest Super Casino in the United Kingdom is hosting several Day 1s. The other two are Casino Milton Keynes and Aspers Casino Newcastle.
