Upcoming WPT schedule includes some familiar haunts

The first half of the upcoming WPT schedule has been completely released

There is no doubt that some of the most exciting announcements for the poker community are those related to the unveiling of important event calendars. The first half of the 2022 World Poker Tour (WPT) has already been released and includes some familiar haunts that will definitely ring a bell for many.

After the prestigious Five Diamond World Poker Classic was played at Bellagio in Las Vegas, Season XIX came to a close at the end of last year. On that occasion, Taylor Black was the poker pro who stood out among all his opponents (716 entrants) to take home no less than $1.2 million. On the other hand, although he did not win a title, Jake Ferro managed to cash in three events and was able to take home the honor of Season XIX Player of the Year.

According to the latest updates, the new Season XX of the WPT Main Tour will kick off on January 26 with the $3500 buy-in Lucky Hearts Poker Open at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, FL. This resort is well known for being one of WPT’s top destinations, so it was no surprise to many to see it as a first venue. This specific tournament will have over $2 million in guaranteed prize money at stake.

The second WPT event of this first half of the announced schedule will take place on April 8 at the same casino. The $3500 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown, which has strong similarities to the Lucky Hearts format, will likely have the capacity to attract more than 1,000 participants.

The next event will indeed leave the Sunshine State, as participants will have to pack their bags and head to Durant, Oklahoma. There, the Choctaw Casino Resort will have its doors open on May 13 for a $3,800 tournament. For the time being, and although it may seem like a short schedule, these will be the only three Main Tour events scheduled in 2022. However, more stops are likely to be added as the year progresses.
