As soon as 21 events of the Main Tour have finished and over 50 million dollars has been drawn among more than 12 thousand participants, Season XIV of World Poker Tour (WPT) has obtained the status of one of the most significant events in the world of poker.
World Poker Tour has recently released official data on the timetable of Season XV of the annual Main Tour. The new timetable includes the Tournament of Champions, and the tournament in the Dominican Republic will replace the events that used to be held in Vienna and Johannesburg.
The timetable provides such cult and traditional tournaments as the Legends of Poker WPT at The Bicycle Hotel and Casino, the WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic at Bellagio in Las Vegas, and the WPT LA Poker Classic Tournament at Commerce Casino. In addition to the established standards of the Main Tour, the Tournament of Champions will be held in the second season in a row. The winners of all the major events of this season will take part in it. Meanwhile, the champions of the previous season will have to make a $15,000 buy-in to participate in it. It will significantly increase the total prize pool.
Cooperating with PartyPoker, WPT launches a series of WPT Passport qualifying online tournaments, where $5,000 packages for any selected tournament sponsored by partypoker will be drawn.
Each WPT Main Tour will have the Festival WPT Championship. It is a tournament in which the winners of all events will compete for an opportunity to participate in the Main Tour.
