Wpt Releases First Half of Season Xxi Schedule

On Thursday, the World Poker Tour announced the first half of its Season XXI schedule. The release included 12 events spread out over nine countries, including Australia. After the success of the first WPT event in Australia in 2022, the series will return to the Star Gold Coast in March.

Wpt Returns to Australia In March

The World Poker Tour announced the first half of its Season XXI schedule on Thursday. The long-running poker tournament series will return with 12 events through the first half of 2023. The first event will kick off Season XXI in Paris, France. The World Poker Tour Prime Paris will run at Club Circus Paris from January 31 through February 5.

Following the Paris series, the series will return to Australia. The WPT Prime Gold Coast will run from March 2nd through 6th at The Star Gold Coast. In September, David Tang won the inaugural World Poker Tour Australia Main Event, earning $425,712. The event drew an incredible field of 710 players and effectively guaranteed a return trip in 2023.

The remaining scheduled events will see the series head to Cambodia, The Netherlands, India, Slovakia, Vietnam, Italy, and America. Four of the events on the schedule will be in the United States.

World Poker Tour VP of Global Tour Management Angelica Hael was quoted in a press release, stating, “It is the pride of WPT to offer such a wide range of tournament festivals when it comes to buy-in and location. We would like to extend our sincerest thanks to all of our live partners worldwide and our appreciation for the players for their continued support”.

Schedule Includes Three New Stops

The World Poker Tour is constantly expanding and will include three new stops on the schedule. The stops in France, Sanremo, and Slovakia are new for the series. World Poker Tour events generally have a group of preliminary events that lead to a Main Event stop.

Some of the events on the schedule will be taped for televised broadcasts. The American stops at the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown, Choctaw, and Gardens Poker Championship will be broadcast.

World Poker Tour CEO Adam Pliska spoke on the new schedule, stating, “Coming off an incredible 20th-anniversary season for WPT, we are looking forward to its progression into 2023. Players have much to anticipate during Season XXI, as we have established some new partnerships and continued our relationships with longstanding staples of the Tour.”
