Partypoker partners with WSOP for first time, making live debut in Brazil


Breaking News!​ You can also read the blog here: Blog Post
Also here it is live in Party’s Site: partypoker LIVE 

partypoker is partnering with the World Series of Poker to provide exclusive online satellites to the $1 million guaranteed WSOP Brazil Main Event. Hosted in Sao Paulo that starts on 24th September. Satellites are starting this Sunday (July 30), giving players the chance to win a $1,500 package for WSOP Brazil for as little as $2.20.

WSOP Brazil, sponsored by partypoker LIVE, will be running September 27 to October 4. In the spectacular Bienal pavilion in Ibirapuera Park in Sao Paulo. This will be partypoker’s first live event in the LATAM region where poker has been enjoying spectacular growth. More than eight million Brazilians already play poker, with over a million new players taking up the sport every year.

Last year’s inaugural WSOP Brazil event attracted more than 12,000 players across the eight-day festival. Brazilian Francisco Moura won the $1,100 buy-in Main Event for $238,372 after beating a field of more than 1,000 players.

 

Qualify exclusively on partypoker for $1,000,000 guaranteed WSOP Brazil Main Event September 24th

 

partypoker will be running a three phase qualifier program for WSOP Brazil with online Quarter and Semi Finals phases every day. And a weekly Final each Sunday which comes with ten $1,500 WSOP Brazil seats guaranteed. The $1,500 prize package comprises the $1,100 buy in for WSOP Brazil plus $400 spending money.

The Quarter and Semi Final phases on partypoker will give players of all bankrolls the chance to compete at WSOP Brazil, and the satellite program offers a great mix of regular, turbo and hyper turbo formats. Players can start their journey to Sao Paulo in any phase and carry their chips forward to the next; Quarter Finals costs $2.20 and Semi Finals are $22. Players can also buy in direct into the weekly Final.  Which guarantees ten $1,500 WSOP Brazil packages and costs $215 to enter. The first WSOP Brazil Final satellite will be on Sunday August 6.

Finally, among those set to compete at WSOP Brazil is partypoker Ambassador Joao Simao. The 28-year-old hails from Belo Horizonte, the state capital of Minas Gerais in Brazil. It’s one of his country’s most successful poker players. Simao has over $5.5 million in online cashes and captured the PocketFives world #1 title last year. He has also had huge success on the live circuit and has thrived at partypoker LIVE events. His total live tournament winnings of more than $850,000.  Include a fifth place in the £10k partypoker MILLIONS Nottingham High Roller in April for £85,000.  Also a victory in the $10k partypoker CPP High Roller last November for $88,500.

Simao said: “I am so excited that partypoker is sponsoring WSOP Brazil. It’s an incredible event and I am very proud that I will be competing there this year as a representative for partypoker. As a partypoker Ambassador, I look forward to welcoming hundreds of partypoker players to my country to compete against the best players in Brazil. You will be taking part in one of the world’s biggest poker tournaments and are all going to have a great time!”

Partypoker excited for the opportunity to expand to Brazil

partypoker LIVE President John Duthie said: “We are absolutely thrilled at the opportunity to partner the World Series of Poker for the first time.  Especially in a country like Brazil where poker has such a huge and enthusiastic following. Hence, no one should miss the chance to compete here – the atmosphere at poker tournaments in Brazil is just incredible.

“Brazilians absolutely love poker and have no hesitation in showing it; anyone who has seen them railing one of their fellow countrymen will know what I mean! For partypoker to be going to Brazil for the first time with an event as prestigious as the World Series of Poker is just fantastic. We are all really looking forward to it and delighted we are able to give partypoker players the chance to join us.”
