World Poker Tour Season XV Schedule Announced

wpt-logoThe World Poker Tour Season XV has already begun, with one event already completed, as WPT officials now announce the full schedule for the new season. 17 open events are set to take place with the WPT Tournament of Champions back in action. The Canadian Spring Championship kicked off Season XV at the Playground Poker Club earlier this month and new events have been added for players to enjoy as the tour continues.

President and WPT CEO, Adam Pliska, stated that Season XIV saw 12,000 entries and more than $50 million combined prize pools offered. With the ‘overwhelmingly positive response’ from the WPT Champions Club members, the WPT has decided to bring back the WPT Tournament of Champions for Season XV and launch new initiatives to continue to enhance the WPT experience.

Last season, the WPT Championship was replaced by the WPT Tournament of Champions, which will take place again this season in April 2017 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino of Florida. A new tournament on the schedule will include the partypoker WPT Caribbean, which will take place in the Dominican Republic at the Hard Rock Punta Cana. This event will run from the 19th of November until the 26th, and feature a main event with a buy-in of $5,000.

Another new event debuting this season is the WPT Passport. This event will see online qualifiers taking place for events of the WPT. Players will be able to choose which tournament they will be using their $5,000 prize package on. Four events of Season XV are still eligible. Satellites have a buy-in of $530 and take place at partypoker with at least one package guaranteed.
