WPT Announces New Schedule for 2013

The WPT will continue to visit many of the most popular destinations along with some lesser known ‘newer’ markets in both the U.S and Europe in 2013.

January 27th 2013 sees one of the smallest buy in events of the season with a return to the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa in Atlantic City. However, the main event of this series will have a $2 million guaranteed prize pool, which means some of the world’s best will be expected to show up.

Other well known events that have been included on the circuit are the Florida Lucky Hearts Poker Open, and the Montesino Casino in Austria. Of course, the biggest event of the WPT will be the Super High Roller Championship at the Bellagio, which carries a $100,000 buy in.

However, players in Europe and Africa may be more interested in some of the smaller national events that have been set up to run alongside the main tour events. These tournaments run from January to late May. Stops on this tour include; Dublin, Paris, Brussels, Cyprus, Mauritius, Cannes, Marbella and France with all buy ins set at €1,650 apart from the tournament in Dublin, which costs = €1,320 to enter.

The news of the schedule comes after Dominik Nitsche won the WPT in South Africa after a harshly contested final table. Nitsche started the day on 2,915,000 chips, an astonishing 1.7 million more than his closest competitor, and while play may have been quite rapid, Nitsche did not have it all his own way. After eliminating third place (when the day started) Strauss, Nitsche has 75% of the chips left at the table.

When moving into heads up with Jerome Bradpiece, Nitsche found himself behind by two million chips after three crucial hands. However, it would be two bigger hands who would see Nitsche take down the tournament and over $205,000 as well.
