After 12 seasons and 193 crowned champions, the World Poker Tour is ready for more.
Starting on June 5, 2014, the WPT will make 20 stops across four continents in less than seven months, giving a chance to every poker professional and amateur alike to compete at a high level and show off his or her reading skills.
Coming off a very successful Season XII highlighted by some record-setting numbers and fantastic new locations, the World Poker Tour marches into lucky Season XIII with more new global stops and many of the great tournaments that have made the WPT the most player-friendly tour in poker.” – WPT Executive Tour Director, Matt Savage
Season XIII will make its debut with a National Event in Italy worth €990 between June 5 and 9, 2014 before switching to London, UK where an affordable £200 buy-in event will be organized at Aspers Casino between July 3 and 6.
At the same time but on a different continent in Las Vegas, ARIA Resort & Casino will host a special WPT500 event that will feature five Day 1’s, a guaranteed prize pool of $1 million, and also a guaranteed first place prize of $200,000.
The Main Tour will start off in California with the already notorious WPT Legends of Poker event beginning August 23. Two weeks later, the WPT will move to Cyprus for the WPT Merit Classic North Cyprus $4,400 Event.
