The event will take place from April 19 to April 27 with 15 tournaments guaranteeing $600,000. The online championship will coincide with the partypoker WPT World Championship live tournament at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, which runs from April 21 through April 26. This marks the first time the WPT World Championship tournament will be held outside of Las Vegas.
Borgata, which has teamed with bwin.party as its web partner, has been the industry leader in Internet gambling since the New Jersey launch in November. In February, Borgata captured 40 percent of New Jersey’s $10.3 million in online gambling revenue.
