WPT Prime Amsterdam Schedule Revealed

WPT Prime Amsterdam will be one of Europe's most exciting poker events this spring, as it is expected to potentially bring in over 1,000 players and create a monster prize pool.

After the successful Aix-En-Provence event with 758 entries, which awarded the champion Yakiv Syzghanov a $144,612 first-place prize, WPT Prime seeks to create an even bigger and more impactful festival in Amsterdam.

Action in the Netherlands will kick off on Friday, March 15, with a €565 Opener event, with a number of other lower-buyin events scheduled for the weekend and beyond.

Main Event action starts on Sunday, March 17, with Day 1 flights available on Monday and Tuesday as well, allowing multiple opportunities to qualify for Day 2.

It is worth noting that the Main Event will feature 40-minute levels but also unlimited re-entry options, which many pros will likely take advantage of to fire multiple bullets and do what they must to qualify for the late stages of the event.

Pot Limit Omaha players will get their chance in a €1,100 8-Max PLO event that starts on March 21 and ends the following day, while high-rollers get to compete in a €2,200 High Roller event that kicks off on March 22 and ends on March 23.

With plenty of action at different buyin levels, WPT Prime Amsterdam promises to leave everyone satisfied and provide just the right amount of action for any player who joins the festival.

Action Clock and Time Chips Explained

If you are planning a trip to Amsterdam for the WPT Prime Amsterdam festival, it is worth noting that the Main Event and other key events will feature an action clock, which will be used in all stages of the tournament.

If you have not played poker with an action clock before, it may be a bit of an adjustment, so it is worth explaining how it works and what you will have to do.

At the start of play, each player gets 15 seconds to act on their hand preflop. If you don’t act on your hand in that period, your hand is folded. The amount of time you have to act preflop will increase to 20 seconds ITM and 30 seconds at the final table.

Once you have placed chips into the pot, you will have 30 seconds to make every subsequent action when it’s your turn to act again.

If you need more time to act on your hand, you will be able to use a number of time chips, which will be assigned at the start of play and throughout the tournament.

You will have a limited number of time chips, which will limit the amount of time you can spend thinking in your hands and speed up play.

If your clock happens to run out mid-hand, don’t worry, as the dealer will simply request you give them a time chip instead of folding your hand.

However, if you run out of time and time chips, your hand will be folded, and you will not be able to take any further action.
