WPT Season XIII Schedule Announced

Written By: Maya Michaels | May 29, 2014 | Posted In Poker News

The poker world maybe focusing on Las Vegas and the World Series of Poker (WSOP) right now, but the World Poker Tour (WPT) have today tried to deflect a little of that focus as they have announced the first half of their Season XIII schedule, a scheduled that makes for interesting reading.

Season XIII will see the WPT head for Florida, Las Vegas and New Jersey, with visits to Canada, South Africa and the UK announced as well. As is the norm with the WPT a number of events will again be shown live on TV with the WPT Legends of Poker getting the ball rolling at the Bell Casino in California during August, with other notable televised events being held in New Jersey, Florida, Canada and Nevada.

Matt Savage is the Executive Tour Director of the WPT and he had this to say regarding the schedule for Season XIII. He said, “Coming off a very successful Season XII highlighted by some record-setting numbers and fantastic new locations, the World Poker Tour marches into lucky Season XIII with more new global stops and many of the great tournaments that have made the WPT the most player-friendly tour in poker.”

WPT President Adam Pliska “couldn’t be happier” with the schedule announced today as he said, “Season XII was a monumental year for the World Poker Tour and our partners around the globe. From the WPT World Championship held for the first time at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, a 1,795 record-setting field at the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown, and a greater than 50% increase in our viewership on FOX Sports Networks to our new collaboration with DeepStacks Poker Tour and three multi-year partnership deals with DraftKings, Monster Headphones, and Swiss luxury watch brand Hublot, we couldn’t be happier with our expansion during Season XII or more excited about our plans for Season XIII.”
