WPT announces 2018 Schedule for Season XVII

by GS Admin Posted on 09 Jun, 2018

World Poker Tour has announced the first half of its Season XVII schedule. The events announced will take the tour through the 2018 calendar year. The schedule features eight WPT Main Tour stops, including a brand new event at The Gardens Casino in California to kick off Season XVII and a new location for WPT500 Los Angeles.

Although they just wrapped up a highly successful Season XVI schedule, the World Poker Tour isn’t sitting back on its laurels. They recently announced the roster of events that will carry them through the end of 2018 and to approximately the midpoint of their Season XVII schedule.

“As the WPT closes out a historic 16th season, the World Poker Tour is proud to announce the 2018 leg of the Season XVII schedule,” Adam Pliska, CEO of the World Poker Tour, said. “Season XVI was our most tremendous season yet. We held our first-ever stops in Beijing, Japan, and South America, returned a televised WPT Main Tour event to Europe, and broke ground in the burgeoning region of India. Additionally, the WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic drew a record-setting field for the second consecutive year, Art Papazyan won two WPT titles en route to winning the Hublot WPT Player of the Year award, Darren Elias won an unprecedented fourth WPT title, and the World Poker Tour awarded its one-billionth prize dollar. The bar has never been higher for the WPT, and we look forward to even greater success this upcoming season.”

Two familiar stops take their place on the schedule next. The WPT Choctaw (which opened the U. S. roster of casinos last year) will run from August 3-7 and features a buy in of $3500. Following that stop, the WPT will once again head east to Atlantic City, NJ, for the WPT Borgata Poker Open. That tournament, with its $3500 buy in, will be held from September 16-21 and routinely has drawn a four-figure field.

The first stop will be what has become the only bounty event on the WPT schedule (with the departure of the Bay 101 Shooting Star last year) in Jacksonville. The WPT bestbet Bounty Scramble, a $5000 buy in tournament, features bounties placed on certain professional poker players that have entered the tournament. The “bounty hunt” will be on starting on October 19 and end with the crowning of a champion on October 23.

The second stop has quickly become one of the favorites for tournament pros and amateurs alike. The WPT Seminole Rock & Roll Poker Open will be a $3500 buy in tournament that should see a sizeable number of players looking for some holiday cash. The event runs from November 23-28 and will be the next to last tournament on the 2018 portion of the schedule.

Closing out 2018 of the Season XVII WPT schedule is the famed WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic. The iconic Bellagio in fabulous Las Vegas plays host to the $10,400 buy-in event. The WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic is coming off two straight seasons of record-setting field sizes. In each of those past two seasons, first place has won more than $1.9 million and the top two spots have earned more than $1 million.
