Adam Pliska, CEO of the World Poker Tour, revealed his excitement at the partnership as well as the prospect of utilising blockchain technology.

“The World Poker Tour is excited to be featured on powered by the Blockchain, an innovator in the fast-growing video streaming space.” He said.

“As and the Theta Network grows in size, we look forward to offering additional assets and programming on the platform in the upcoming future.”

With WPT’s live events in 2020 being cancelled they are now launching an online series to be played exclusively on partypoker, with tournaments running from May 10 to May 26.

The entire series on partypoker will offer $15 million in guarantees. The largest tournament will be the WPT Online Championship, which will be $3,200 to enter with a $5 million guarantee.
