PPPoker has released its full schedule of events for the upcoming 2019 PPPoker World Championship (PPWC). In addition to the Teams Event and the Main Event – PHP 20M Guaranteed, nine more events have been announced bringing it to a total of 11 events across the board. The seven-day festival will be held from February 15 to 21 at Resorts World Manila in the Philippines.
Through the years, the PPPoker social poker application has gained in popularity not just in Asia but across the globe. This year has seen the poker app make tremendous strides with an event hosted in countries such as the Philippines, Germany, Taiwan, Japan, Brazil, Australia, and India.
Taking on a much bigger challenge next year, PPWC will be the first of its kind for the young brand. PPPoker intends to bring together all its constituents under one global poker competition with a massive guaranteed prize pool of PHP 30,000,000 (~US$574,665). The bulk of that is reserved for the Main Event with its PHP 20,000,000 (~US$383,110) guaranteed prize pool.
