It's here. I know you have been holding your breath awaiting the remainder of the World Poker Tour schedule. Well, you finally got your wish because the second half of the WPT Season 17 schedule has finally been released by WPT suits.
The schedule will have events in North America and Europe, so get your passports ready for international action.
The 2019 WPT schedule begins in sunny Southern California. The Hawaiian Gardens will host the $10,000 buy-in Gardens Poker Championship on January 12. In a new twist, the final table will be plated in Las Vegas (and not LA) at the swanky HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas, located at the Luxor.
At the end of January, the WPT and their partner partypoker LIVE will produce the WPT Russia in Sochi, Russia. That event has only a $3,000 buy-in plus a guarantee worth $1.5 million, but partypoker should be sending a slew of online qualifiers.
The Borgata in Atlantic City always hosts the Winter Poker Open at the start of the year. The WPT visits AC for the WPT Winter Poker Open at the end of January.
At the end of February, the WPT heads north of the border to the Fallsview Casino Resort in Ontario for the Fallsview Poker Classic. That event has a CAD $5,000 buy-in. Yes, Canuck bucks, eh!
The WPT Barcelona starts on March 10 at the Casino Barcelona. The event is in conjunction with partypoker LIVE. The buy-in for this event in only €3,300, but it also has a €3 million guarantee.
The WPT European Championship will go down at Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham, United Kingdom in April 7. The WPT Euro Championship has a buy-in of only £3,300.
The WPT returns to Choctaw Casino in Durant, Oklahoma for a second event this season. In mid-May, the WPT Choctaw kicks off in Oklahoma, but the final table will be played out in Vegas! Yes, once again the HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas at the Luxor will host the final table of this WPT event.
The Aria Casino in Las Vegas will be the focal point of the end of the season. Two events will go down at the Aria. Starting May 37 and running through May 31, the Aria hosts the WPT ARIA Summer Championship.
As soon as that ends, the Baccarat Crystal WPT Tournament of Champions kicks off on June 1 at the Aria. The final table for the TOC is scheduled for June 3. The $15,000 buy-in event is open to all members of the WPT Champions Club. Anyone who won an event this season automatically gets a freeroll into the TOC. And yes, the final table of this one will take place at the Luxor in the HyperX Esports Arena.
