The rest of the World Poker Tour's Season XII schedule was announced on Monday, October 7th, 2013. The season will finish in 2014 with seven Main Tour stops and nine additional WPT® Regional and WPT® National events with stops around the world.
Two stops at the Borgata Hotel, Casino & Spa will Highlight the rest of Season XII. The televised WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open in Atlantic City marks the beginning of the 2014 schedule in January with the finale putting the finishing touches on the series in the $15,400 WPT World Championship. Recently moved from the Bellagio in Las Vegas, this event features a much lower buy-in than years past.
Coming up on the WPT schedule are Main Events that will be hosted at three separate venues that include Florida and California. The WPT Seminole Hard Rock Showdown will kick off in Hollywood, Florida, during April and carry a $10 million guarantee 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.”
