The World Poker Tour has announced 12 stops in its Season 8 schedule, which starts at the Bellagio in Las Vegas with the Bellagio Cup V on July 13 2009 and ends back at that venue on April 17th with the massive $25 000 buy-in WPT World Championship.
 
The schedule also shows the usual WPT stops at Bay 101 in San Jose, California; the Bicycle Casino in Los Angeles; Beau Rivage in Biloxi; the Borgata in Atlantic City; Commerce Casino in Los Angeles and Foxwoods Resort in Mashantucket, Connecticut.
 
Joining the tour as a new stop is the inaugural Hollywood Poker Open in Lawrenceburg, Indiana where on top of the $10 000 buy-in main event there will be three non-televised WPT tournaments with buy-ins ranging from $3 000 to $5 000.
 
Season 8 will be filmed in High Definition and broadcast on Fox Sports Net (FSN) in the United States.
