World Poker Tour Reveals Second Half of Season XII Schedule

World Poker Tour Reveals Second Half of Season XII Schedule 0001

The World Poker Tour announced the remainder of its Season XII schedule on Monday. The record-setting season will close out next year with seven Main Tour stops and nine additional WPT® Regional and WPT® National events located around the globe.

Highlighting the remainder of Season XII will be two stops at the Borgata Hotel, Casino & Spa. The 2014 schedule kicks off in Atlantic City in January with the televised WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open, and will conclude with the season-ending $15,400 WPT World Championship. That event was was recently moved from the Bellagio in Las Vegas and features a brand new price tag (down from $25,000).

The WPT will also host Main Events at three separate venues in Florida, plus two in California. In April heads to Hollywood, Fla. for the season’s penultimate event - the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Showdown. Just like August’s massively successful Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open, next year's event will carry a $10 million guarantee on the championship event.

“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.”  

“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.”
