WPT Partnership

As partners with one of the most trusted names in poker, we take great pride in being the online home of the World Poker Tour and acknowledge the trust and standing they have built.

We harness our partnership with the WPT not only to provide players opportunities to qualify for premier events, but also to help them accomplish their poker dreams.

Almost 20 years before the first hand was dealt on WPT® Global, the World Poker Tour was taking the poker boom to new levels by hosting major poker tournaments all around the world. The WPT not only coordinated premier poker events, it launched the likes of Gus Hansen, Phil Ivey, and Mike Sexton to stardom as they became fixtures in the industry.

As the best place to qualify for live WPT events, WPT Global works to advance the legacy of the WPT by helping its players add to it. WPT Global consistently rewards players with seats to live WPT tournament staples like the WPT500, WPT Prime, and WPT Championships, including the WPT World Championship.

Players have turned WPT Global satellite wins into not only hundreds of thousands of dollars, but opportunities to travel all over the world to live WPT events in places like Australia, Vietnam, France, Canada and beyond.

Whether you aspire to be the next inductee into the World Poker Tour Champions Club or simply want to say you once faced off with Phil Ivey in a meet up game, WPT Global is the place to make your poker dreams a reality.

Want to learn more about how WPT Global has helped players make their poker dreams come true? Check out some of the WPT Global players who have turned online satellite wins into major success at live WPT events below:

Andres Campero: Turned a WPT Global Freeroll Ticket into $111,300

Hailing from Mexico, Andres Campero took a Scavenger Hunt Freeroll ticket and turned it into a trip to the 2023 WPT World Championship at the Wynn in Las Vegas. Completing a variety of Scavenger Hunt missions to receive his eventual freeroll ticket, it is unlikely Campero knew his efforts would result in a six-figure score.

A PHD recipient from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.) who works in artificial intelligence, Campero had the brain power to succeed at poker’s biggest stage, all he needed was an opportunity. Playing his way through multiple step satellites on WPT Global, Campero punched his ticket to Las Vegas and would make the most of it.

Finishing in 42nd place out of a total field of 3,835 entrants, Campero successfully turned a WPT Global Freeroll ticket into $111,300.

Campero’s journey to the WPT World Championship reflects our mission to bring players’ poker dreams to fruition.

Stephen Kehoe: Turned a $550 WPT Global Satellite into $269,000

While Stephen Kehoe’s journey began with a $550 WPT Global satellite played from his home country of Ireland, it would ultimately end in Las Vegas at the WPT World Championship. Beating more than 100 players in the satellite to punch his ticket to Las Vegas, Kehoe turned a once in a lifetime opportunity into a cash worth double his career tournament winnings.

Finishing in 14th place out of a total field of 2,960, Kehoe cashed for a staggering $269,900 prize, well over 400 times the buy-in of his initial satellite tournament on WPT Global. Coming into the biggest tournament of his life, Kehoe shared how his only goal was to play his best, which he certainly accomplished.

Representing WPT Global on one of poker’s biggest stages, Kehoe showed how just one online satellite can change the entire course of a player’s poker career.

Marc Lavergne: Turned $1,150 WPT Prime Montreal Online Day 1 into $36,574

Canadian MTT grinder and WPT Global player Marc Lavergne displayed the success one can have by playing online day ones for major events. Participating in the Online Day One of WPT Prime Montreal, Lavergne qualified to play Day Two live at Playground.

Lavergne navigated the live field with ease to reach the final table, where he faced off against the likes of WPT Global ambassador Brad Owen.

Finishing in 5th place, Lavergne not only secured a healthy $36,574 score, but gave an example of how success can carry over from WPT Global to major live WPT events.
