The Main Event is going to feature a buy-in amounting to some $10,400 which guarantees a generous prize pool at the culminating event. Each of the players registered for participation will have the chance to play for a fair share of the total reward pie which is going to be revealed once all participants make their way to the poker tournament. Poker action is scheduled to commence every day at exactly 12 pm and it has been confirmed that the final table of the Main Event will feature the top six players surviving.

This poker championship which is going to transform the Bellagio Resort and Casino in Las Vegas is one of the new offerings provided by WPT to all of its poker enthusiasts which is featured as a part of the Season XVI WPT schedule. The last and grander part of the poker festival is going to be reserved for the High Roller event which is expected to span over the last two days of the championship.

Starting on the 5th and continuing on the 6th this event will be a special one, as it is going to feature its Final Table on the 25th.
