World Poker Tour Announces 2013 Tournament Schedule

by | Published: Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

The World Poker Tour has announced its tournament schedule for 2013 with events set to be played in nine of the most prestigious casinos in the United States and Europe.

The tour will return to Borgata Hotel Casino in Atlantic City for the WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open – just a few months after the WPT Borgata Poker Open that drew more than 1000 entrants.

Borgata has always been one of the most popular stops on the World Poker Tour schedule so it is obvious that they are looking to get as much mileage as possible out of the famous venue.

The tour will head to Florida for the WPT Lucky Hearts Poker Open before returning to Europe for the WPT Vienna.

The Europe-based event will be playing at the same time as the $10,000 WPT L.A. Poker Classic that has been a part of the World Poker Tour since the inaugural season.

The always popular WPT Bay 101 Shooting Stars tournament will begin in March and will once again be played under bounty rules.

It is then back to Europe for the WPT Barcelona event that is held on the shores of the Mediterranean and is sure to entice a number of leading US players to make the trip overseas.

The season will end with a double header of the $100,000 WPT Super High Roller Championship and the $25,000 WPT World Championship that will both be held at the Bellagio Hotel commencing on the 18th of May.

CEO Steve Heller is confident that the World Poker Tour will continue to go from strength to strength in 2013.

“By working with a combination of existing and new partners throughout Season XI, WPT is constantly seeking to provide players around the world with access to high-quality tournaments and a one-of-a-kind poker experiences that no one else can offer,” Heller said.

“After first-ever stops in Johannesburg, South Africa and Sanya, China in 2012 – along with repeat visits to popular venues such as Aviation Club de France in Paris and Bellagio in Las Vegas –it’s obvious that World Poker Tour remains the best choice for players who want to maximize the value of their tournament buy-in while also being able to compete against world-class competition on one of the biggest stages in the game today.”
