WPT announces more stops for 2023, adds Florida and Australia
By Bob Garcia
The World Poker Tour continues to expand its schedule for the year, adding several new stops
The second half of Season XXI of the World Poker Tour (WPT) now appears to have new destinations, according to the organizers’ announcement last week. Several events in the US and around the world should be on the calendar for all those players on Americas Cardroom looking to take their experience to the next level.
Both the Prime and Main Tour were selected to add new stops in some very familiar locations. One of them is Florida, a state where poker has seen incredible growth. Additional locations will also be included in the long list of international destinations where all the action of this tour will take place.
“As we build out the remainder of the schedule for Season XXI of the World Poker Tour, we are happy to be returning to some familiar WPT hosts,” WPT CEO Adam Pliska said in a news release, “while we also welcome a first-ever stop in Liechtenstein, continuing our pledge to bring poker to loyal players around the globe.”
One that has certainly caught the eye is the WPT Australia, which will be held September 22-27 at the Star Gold Coast. It is important to remember that the inaugural $3,600 event broke records in Queensland last year. Australians are looking forward to an opportunity like this to come together and showcase all their poker skills.
This year’s event returns with an additional day in structure and a slightly higher buy-in of $5,400. WPT YouTube and Twitch will be the two platforms available to enjoy everything that happens during the final table.
A couple of weeks later, from November 10-14, the Sunshine State will host a pair of Main Tour stops in bestbet Jacksonville. In the last week of that month, the action moves to the Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood, FL, for the $3,500 Seminole Rock ‘N’ Roll Poker Open.
