WPT Announces The 2017 Schedule
The WPT season in 2017 started with the WPT Beijing Invitational in April and the WPT Amsterdam in May. Recently WPT announced the rest of the events. The main tour will continue in August with the WPT Choctaw(August 4), which is a $3700 tournament held at the Choctaw Casino Resort in Choctaw. This will be the first out of two events in that month with the WPT Legends of Poker coming on a later date(August 26). The second event will be held at the Bicycle Hotel and Casino in Bell Gardens, CA.
The following month, September will also hold two big events. First is the WPT Borgata Poker Open, a $3500 buy-in tournament(September 17). And then finishing the month off with the WPT Maryland Live! $3500 Main Event held at Maryland.
After a little break, the WPT continues with the WPT Bestbet Bounty Scramble in Jacksonville, FL on October 20, a $5000 tournament with a bounty format. In this event, the players will have the opportunity to knock their opponents out and get their cash bonus. This might offset some people’s entries into the WPT event.
November 10 will be the next date when the WPT continues with an event in Montreal. The venue of the tournament will be the Playground Poker Club. A player that everyone is looking forward into seeing at that tournament is the recently joined Party Poker Mike Sexton who was very successful there in 2016.
And what better place than the Bellagio in Las Vegas to finish up 2017. The famous casino will be the host for the WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic, a $10 400 buy-in event that always brings some of the best players in the world to compete. The tournament will start on December 10.
