Also on the schedule are a $200,000 guarantee Frenzy event, $80,000 guarantee NL Hold'em 6 Max and $100,000 Bounty. The $10,000 High Roller comes with a with a $300k guarantee. The WPT Playground is also running a bunch of live satelltes on site as well.

 

Last year Hall of Famer and veteran WPT commentator Mike Sexton won the event for his first ever WPT title after 15 years in the commentary booth. Sexton, who has since become chairman of partypoker, won $317,896 USD after topping a field of 648 entries.
