WPT Season XII is now only two months away from kicking off when bwin WPT Cyprus gets underway on August 16, 2013, from Merit Crystal Cove Hotel & Casino on the beautiful Mediterranean island of Cyprus. The $4,400 buy-in World Poker Tour main event features a guaranteed prizepool of $1,000,000 and will once again draw some of the biggest names in poker. Last year’s event drew 329 players and generated a prizepool of $1,212,694 and awarded $287,784 to eventual champion Marvin Rettenmaier, who set WPT history at that event for being the first player to even win back-to-back World Poker Tour events (the first was Season X WPT World Championship).
With 35 events and $3,000,000 in prize money spread out over the entire series from August 12-25, 2013, and another legendary party planned, this won’t be an event that you’ll want to miss.

As the WPT LA Poker Classic final table continues this Sunday on FSN at 8pm or 11pm local time, viewers won’t see the “big names” that this event has historically featured; however, what they will see at this final table is a talent level that rivals any LAPC final table in WPT history. One of the matchups that has revealed the talent in both amateur and professional alike is the battle between pro Paul Volpe and amateur Paul Klann.
In the above clip, WPT Raw Deal analyst Tony Dunst breaks down one the hands between the two Pauls and looks at a situation where being aggressive isn’t the right play because, as he says, “tight is right.”
At World Poker Tour final tables, there inevitably arises some sort of David vs. Goliath scenario. Whether it’s Old School vs. New School, Internet Whiz vs. Seasoned Live Pro or, in the case of Paul Klann vs. Danny Fuhs at the WPT LA Poker Classic final table, Amateur vs. Professional.
In the above clip, WPT Raw Deal analyst Tony Dunst takes a look at two separate hands that happen between Danny and Paul at this final table and breaks down how the amateur plays the hand against how the professional plays the hand.
What do you think of how each played the hand? Let us know in the comments below.
