Industry giants in the area of online poker such as party poker and poker Central try to bridge and use the difficult phase for the players with new live online events. For this purpose, some of the well-known poker events such as the Irish Open or the Poker Masters Series are postponed.

Poker Masters one of the most popular high-scooter series

The global corona pandemic not only falls victim to sporting events and restaurants, almost all of social life stands still. This also affects casinos, arcades and poker rooms that all are closed. For the huge poker industry, this also means that all Live tournaments are currently failing. How long this condition continues depends on how quickly the spread of the coronavirus can be brought under control and slowed down. This year, among others, the Poker Masters, one of the most popular high-scooter series events in the Poker World, are planned in the Aria in Las Vegas. These are originally supposed to take place in October this year. However, the Corona crisis throws at least a big question mark behind the event.

In order to take the possibly negative development, the inventors of the Poker Masters, PartyPoker and Poker Central have come together and organize from 12. bis 26. April die Poker Masters Online Series. These contain a total of 30 events with buy-ins between $ 10,300 and $ 51,000. On the last day, the highlight of the Poker Series takes place with the $ 51,000 Buy-in Main Event. The price pool will reach at least one height of $ 2 million. PartyPoker managing director Tom Waters commented on the freshly launched Poker Masters Online Series with the following words:

“We are happy to give the players the opportunity to continue to do what they love and play the tournament in online format. The Poker Masters brand has a significant weight in the poker community and we believe that this innovative online format will address both fans and players. ”

The President of Poker Central, Sam Simmons, also commented on the new partnership with Partypoker. Especially in the currently difficult phase, this is a good way to Bring the poker community together in these uncertain times to be able to. Poker has now become a large industry that enables numerous jobs and implements gigantic sums every year. Poker’s popularity has also been increasing constantly for years.

Irish Open 2020 postponed-online variant as a replacement

In addition to the Poker Masters, other tournament series are also affected by the consequences and effects of the coronavirus. The Irish Open are also postponed. A new appointment has not yet been set, but it is rather unrealistic that the Irish Open will still take place in 2020. For this reason, Partypoker decided instead the Irish Open Online Series to take place for the first time. The tournament series with a total of 22 events is to be held from April 6th to 12th. The Buy-Ins range between 162 and 5,200 $ and thus offer attractive opportunities for almost all players.

The large Poker tournament series World Poker Tour is also a question mark. PartyPoker also offers an online alternative with the WPT online series. This is planned for mid -May. Each tournament also starts with one guaranteed price pool of $ five million. Anyone who wins the main event WPT Online Championship will also get a place in the WPT Tournament of Champions as well as at the live tournament WPT. Tom Waters said about the new tournament series:

“It is an honor for us to organize the very first WPT online series. We are always looking for ways to offer our players exciting, top -class MTTS. ”
