The World Poker Tour is extending its partnership with 888poker for a new WPTDeepStacks London online series to close out 2021, both parties announced on Thursday. The festival is set to feature 28 events and more than $3 million in guaranteed prize pools.

WPTDeepStacks is set to begin on November 28 with the $525 buy-in Opening Event, which comes with a $200,000 guarantee. Buy-ins range from $55 for the Mini Main Event up to $5,200 for the Super High Roller. Satellites for all events will begin at just $0.01.

The highlight of the festival is the $1,050 buy-in WPTDS Main Event, a press release states. With ten starting flights, players will have the opportunity to grab a share of a $1 million guaranteed prize pool.

"The World Poker Tour is excited to partner with 888poker again to give players around the globe the opportunity to take down a WPTDeepStacks title," said Angelica Hael, WPT Vice President, Global Tour Management.

Fans will be able to watch via streaming final tables from six of the events on the schedule beginning with the Opening Event final table on Monday, November 29. The final tables of Event #9 ($525 PKO), Event #11 ($2,100 High Roller), Event #17 ($888 Crazy 8), and Event #25 ($200,000 Big Shot) will also be streamed. 

Poker enthusiasts will be able to watch these tables before the Main Event final table on Tuesday, December 21. WPT talent, including Matt Savage and Tony Dunst, as well as 888poker’s David Tuchman and Nick Welthall, will call the action; while 888poker brand ambassadors Dominik Nitsche, Sam Abernathy, Vivian Saliba and Sofia Lovgren are expected to be in the field for a number of events.

"This will be another fabulous festival for 888poker and WPT," said Dominik Nitsche, 888poker brand ambassador and WPT champion. "The beauty of events like this is that they provide a genuine opportunity for casual players to win big starting from one cent buy-ins, all from the comfort of their own home."

This new edition marks the second time in 2021 that 888poker has played host to a WPT event. The most recent WPTDS event on 888poker drew 1,087 entries to create a $1,087,000 prize pool with Brazilian 'paulinhoo00' earning $233,705 as the champion.

"We're delighted to partner with WPT to launch another WPTDeepStacks series,” said Amit Berkovich, Head of 888poker. “Responding to the ever-changing needs of our players, the festival provides the prestige and the feel of the live circuit on the mobile or laptop and gives a shot of poker glory to casual and professional players alike.”
