The online versions of the White Elephant Poker Championship (WEPC) and Japan High Roller (JHR) tournaments will be making an appearance soon on Natural8, and open to all players on the platform.
Originating from Thailand, the WEPC 2020 Series will feature a Main Event with $50,000 in guarantees. Over 6 days from 23-28 Nov, there will be a total of 14 events including deepstack and bounty hunter options.
With 12 satellites to the Main Event on the schedule, players can buy-in at a very reasonable $5 for a chance to qualify for the WEPC Main Event with $50,000 GTD.
The Main Event will have 5 starting flights, with late registration available. Natural8’s Tournament Staking feature is also available for selected events, allowing players to sell their own action or back others.
The Japan High Roller series is also coming online to Natural8 this year, with 24 major events and plenty of mini and micro events. Happening from 28 Nov - 6 Dec, this 9-day event will feature buy-ins starting from $50.
The series will kick off with the Opening Charity for Medical Staff, to honour all frontline medical personnel who have worked hard and made increasing sacrifices this year in the face of the pandemic. Featured events will include the “Saturday Night Fever” Turbo Championship, Main Event and Super High Roller.
There will also be a JHR Leaderboard, with the top three players winning packages to the 2021 Japan High Roller live event, scheduled to be held in Incheon, South Korea. The top player will receive a 2,000,000 KRW (~1,800 USD) and a trophy.
Both tournaments will take place on the Natural8 app, with the WEPC 2020 Series catering to lower-stakes players and JHR for the high roller crowd. A skin on the fast-growing GGPoker Network, Natural8 is Asia’s biggest online poker room and features a sizable recreational player base.
New players can get up to $1,559 in bonuses - including a bonus of up to $1000 on their first deposit, an $8 instant bonus, $301 in prizes for completing the Honeymoon for Newcomers challenge, as well as entry to the $250 First Deposit Freeroll.
