Los Angeles, CA (September 22, 2022) – World Poker Tour® ambassador Andrew Neeme will headline the second WPT® World Championship Bounty Poker Tournament on ClubWPT™ this Sunday with the winner earning a $12,000 WPT Passport for the $15 million guarantee WPT World Championship at Wynn Las Vegas this December.
The first installment of the event saw fellow WPT ambassador Brad Owen defy the odds to emerge as the winner after topping the 2,154-player field.
“With the tremendous success of Brad Owen’s WPT World Championship Bounty event on ClubWPT, we are looking forward to the second installment with Andrew Neeme,” said Adam Pliska, WPT CEO. “The ClubWPT tournament provides players with a unique chance to compete alongside Andrew and an amazing opportunity to win their way to the World Championship.”
ClubWPT is the only online platform available where American poker players can qualify online for the WPT World Championship. The $12,000 value of a WPT World Championship Passport includes the $10,400 buy-in for the event, a four-night stay at Wynn Las Vegas, as well as $1,000 cash for travel expenses.
An additional prize will be won by the player who eliminates Neeme from the event. Neeme’s bounty is a $2,500 WPT Prime Championship Passport. During the first installment of this ClubWPT bounty event, Owen, in front of 10,000+ viewers, evaded elimination to win. Owen bestowed the grand prize to the second-place finisher and awarded his unclaimed bounty to the third-place finisher.
In light of Owen’s victory and prize giveaways, Neeme vowed that if he wins this World Championship Bounty event, he will shave his head.
“This Sunday I’ll be hosting a World Championship Bounty event on ClubWPT and streaming my play on my YouTube channel,” mentioned Neeme. “Players who want in on a fun freeroll with lots of value can sign up and join on ClubWPT. If I happen to win my own bounty event, I’m shaving my head.”
