Satellites have been available and will continue to run until the start of the WPT Online Poker Open next weekend. Qualifiers start at just $5.
But there’s more!
The entire series connected with the tournament begins today, June 22. Let’s get to those details.
PartyPoker US Network Online Open
The entire series on the New Jersey PartyPoker site is designated as the PartyPoker US Network Online Open. That series begins today, as mentioned and runs through the weekend. There are 12 online poker events in all.

Since the cases of Covid-19 continue to linger, especially in states like New Jersey, casinos are only beginning to reopen after shutting down completely in mid-March. And for the few casinos that might offer action in their poker rooms, tournaments like the famous Borgata Poker Open remain many months in the future. Thus, the online series runs in its place.
The series offers this schedule to its players:
Event 1 / June 22: $5 PLO Hi ($1K GTD)
Event 2 / June 22: $10 NLHE ($2,500 GTD)
Event 3 / June 23: $20 NLHE w/unlimited reentries ($2K GTD)
Event 4 / June 23: $109 NLHE w/unlimited reentries ($7,500 GTD)
Event 5 / June 24: $5 NLHE w/unlimited reentries ($1,500 GTD)
Event 6 / June 24: $215 NLHE w/unlimited reentries ($20K GTD)
Event 7 / June 25: $10 NLHE ($2,500 GTD)
Event 8 / June 26: $5 NHLE w/unlimited reentries ($2K GTD)
Event 9 / June 26: $215 NLHE w/unlimited reentries ($15K GTD)
Event 10 / June 27: $10 NLHE ($2,500 GTD)
Event 11 / June 27: $320 NLHE w/unlimited reentries ($15K GTD)

Something for Everyone
The series offers something for New Jersey players of nearly every buy-in level this week.
Of course, the winner of the WPT Online Poker Open will win the biggest share of any prize pool in this series, including a trophy and a World Poker Tour VIP experience. That prize package will be worth $11K, comprised of $600 in travel expenses and a $10,400 buy-in to the WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic at the Bellagio in Las Vegas this December.
