John Gudger has become the champion of the Party Poker World Poker Tour (WPT) National UK Milton Keynes Main Event. The credit of converting a small investment of $3 into a large first-place prize of £12,750 goes to Gudger.
Players might wonder how Gudger managed to qualify for the Party Poker WPT National UK Milton Keyne Main Event by parting with just $3. He just bought into a satellite qualifier tournament held at Party Poker and won a seat.
Players have noted from time to time that anybody can qualify for major WPT events, even if their bankrolls do not permit it. Party Poker runs a wide range of qualifiers to help players win free seats to these events. The next tournament is going to be the WPT National London, and those who would like to qualify for the same can do so between February 27 and March 2 at Party Poker.

Although poker players feel that they know everything about the game of poker, there is no harm in listening to the pros. Party Poker has therefore provided an opportunity for its online poker customers to learn from professional poker players. Recently, Maximilian Droege, who has won several satellite tournaments at Party Poker, is providing a valuable poker tip for the benefit of Party Poker players. On Dec 23, Chris Moorman, a widely acclaimed professional poker player who plays under the moniker “moorman1” supplied five tips on how to play a better game of poker.
Besides giving players a chance to learn from the pros, Party Poker is also giving players the opportunity to win a WPT Borgata Winter Open Package worth $6k.
