World Poker Tour Season XI Heating Up!

by | Published: Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

Season XI of the World Poker Tour is heating up with the popular LA Poker Classic and Bay 101 Shooting Star event being held over the next fortnight.

The 2013 LA Poker Classic will be the first televised World Poker Tour event of the year commencing on Saturday February 23rd with a $10,000 buy-in.

The tournament always draws a very talented field and 2013 will be no exception with Joe Serock, Scott Seiver, Barry Greenstein and Hoyt Corkins all locked in to compete in the tournament.

World Poker Tour CEO Steve Heller said he was delighted the tour was returning to one of its most loyal tournaments.

“As the culmination of six weeks of live tournaments at Commerce Casino, the WPT LA Poker Classic Championship is consistently one of the most popular events on tour,” Heller said.

“World Poker Tour is thrilled to be broadcasting this event for the eleventh consecutive season and we look forward continuing our relationship with the Commerce Casino for many years to come.”

The Bay 101 Shooting Star is the most unique stop on the World Poker Tour with $2500 bounties being placed on the heads of some of the most popular professional poker players in the world.

This year poker superstars like Mike Sexton, Antonio Esfandiari, Daniel Negreanu and Jason Somerville will all have bounties on their heads.

World Poker Tour President Adam Pliska said that excitement was building for the popular event.

“The atmosphere at Bay 101 is always electric with some of the most enthusiastic fans coming to get a glimpse of the world’s best and most celebrated poker players,” Pliska said.

“Unlike any other event of its kind, WPT Bay 101 Shooting Star has the excitement of a Hollywood movie premiere with the intensity of all-star competition.

“It’s simply one event that anyone who loves poker should not miss.”

The Bay 101 Shooting Star tournament begins on March 4th.

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.”
