The World Poker Tour has today announced the second half of Season XII’s schedule, which will conclude next year with seven Main Tour events and a further nine World Poker Tour Regional and National events to be held all around the world.
The major highlight of the season’s second half is two stops at the stunning Borgata Hotel, Casino and Spa. Kicking off in January at the particularly fitting Atlantic City with the televised Borgata Winter Poker Open, the tour will wind down to an inevitable conclusion at the $15,400 WPT World Championship; an event that has been moved from the Las Vegas Bellagio and featuring an all new, cheaper buy-in.
The World Poker Tour is also set to visit two venues in California and a further three in Florida including the season’s penultimate event; the Seminole Hard Rock Showdown. Similarly to this past August’s Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open, the event is set to feature an unbelievable $10 million guarantee on the main event.
World Poker Tour Executive Tour Director Matt Savage commented on the schedule following its release on Monday.
“The much-anticipated second half of the WPT schedule was definitely worth the wait”.
“Players can start to book travel knowing that many quality events in great locations are now in place” Savage said.
World Poker Tour President Adam Pliska also expressed his excitement at the announcement of the 16-event card.
“We are very excited about the depth and breadth of our Sean XII schedule” Pliska said.
“We’ve taken great care to ensure all of our players; whether they’re on the Main Tour of in our WPT Regional or WPT National events, enjoy a world-class experience at premier venues around the globe:.
As previously highlighted, the first event of the schedule is set to begin on January 26th at the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa in Atlantic City, concluding five days later on the 31st.
