Second Half of WPT Season XII Features Iconic Events and New Venues

In a season already loaded with popular tournaments at incredible venues around the globe, World Poker Tour will close out its record-setting Season XII with seven Main Tour stops and nine additional WPT Regional and WPT National events.

“We are very excited about the depth and breadth of our Season XII schedule,” said WPT President, Adam Pliska. “We’ve taken great care to ensure all of our players – whether they’re on the Main Tour or in our WPT Regional or WPT National events – enjoy world-class experiences at premier venues around the globe.”

Bookending the remainder of Season XII are two stops at the Borgata Hotel, Casino & Spa, which after the recent WPT Borgata Poker Open, is now home to four of the five largest events in World Poker Tour history. The 2014 schedule begins in Atlantic City, New Jersey with the televised WPT Borgata Poker Open before heading to Seminole Casino Coconut Creek for the WPT Lucky Hearts Poker Open in February.

In March, WPT heads to California for two televised events — the iconic LA Poker Classic and the unique WPT Bay 101 Shooting Star – before heading back to Jacksonville, Florida for the WPT bestbet Open. In April, the tour makes its third stop in the Sunshine State when it heads to Hollywood, Florida for the season’s penultimate event – the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Showdown which, like last August’s highly successful Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open, will carry a massive $10 million guarantee on the championship event. From Florida, the WPT heads back up the East Coast to Borgata and the season-ending, $15,400 buy-in WPT World Championship sponsored by partypoker.

Players seeking WPT-quality events at more affordable buy-ins will have many options to choose from on the WPT Regional and WPT National tours. In the United States, WPT Regional events will be held in Florida and Mississippi, while the WPT National tour will feature events in England, France, and Belgium.

“The much-anticipated, second half of the WPT schedule was definitely worth the wait,” said WPT Executive Tour Director Matt Savage. “Players can start to book travel knowing that many quality events in great locations are now in place.”
