World Poker Tour Season XI Schedule Announced

Share this

Yesterday, May 16th, the World Poker Tour officially announced the full Season XI schedule including the dates of the Regional and National tournaments. The series will take off August 4th at the Merit-Grand Casino in Cyprus with a $4,400 event. The tour will host a total of 11 events all around the world finishing with the $10,300 Five Diamond World Poker Classic on December 17th through 22nd.

Most of the Season XI WPT events, except the Five Diamond World Poker Classic, will allow re-entries giving players the chance to redeem themselves in case of an early bust. The same applies to the Regional and National series with the exception of just two events – the $1,600 WPT Regional Florida: WPT Derby Lane Rebound Series and the $550 WPT Regional Wisconsin: Mid-Summer Classic.

“World Poker Tour is committed to extending its global reach,” Steve Heller, WPT CEO said after announcing the tournament schedule. “Not only will Season XI feature new stops in the US and abroad, but World Poker Tour is also widely expanding our Regional and National Series to deliver the WPT experience to as many players and fans as possible.”
