Freerolls and and low cost online qualifiers into the main satellite are running daily.

In the meantime, PartyPoker is also giving away $14,000 packages for the the WPT LA Poker Classic at the Commerce Casino in Los Angeles.

The packages include the $10,000 buy-in to the main event, five nights accommodation and $3,000 in spending money.

A main $700+$50 online satellite takes place every Sunday at 1:45 p.m. ET with one in 20 players securing a package.

Freerolls and and low cost online qualifiers into the LAPC main satellite are also running daily until Feb. 13.

Both WPT events will be televised.

“I am very much looking forward to coming to Europe for the WPT Venice and hope to see as many PartyPoker qualifiers there as possible," said WPT commentator and PartyPoker spokesperson Mike Sexton.

"The commentary situation for the televised element is going to be interesting to say the least. In LA we have your traditional outside broadcast truck but guess what? In Venice, this truck is a boat!

"I will also be at the LA Poker Classic, the main event is fantastic and the cash games don’t get much better than at the Commerce.”
