Wednesday April 30,2014 : WPT PARTNERS WITH DEEPSTACKS POKER TOUR
Joint venture combines WPT Regional and DeepStacks Poker Tour brands
WPT Enterprises has partnered with the DeepStacks Poker Tour to form the WPTDeepStacks, which replaces WPT-Regional and DeepStacks Poker Tour brands.
“This is one of those rare win-win-wins,” said WPT President Adam Pliska. “Combining WPT’s brand with DSPT’s staff and cutting-edge approach is a victory for both brands. We couldn’t be more excited about what this means for poker players everywhere.”
Immediate benefits for players include larger prize pool guarantees, bigger fields, more player amenities, and the addition of a seat into the 2015 WPT World Championship as part of the new WPTDeepStacks Player of the Year race.
“WPTDeepStacks completely redefines the mid-major tournament market, delivering a world class experience to low and medium buy-in players, at a fraction of the cost,” said DSPT President Chris Torina. “WPT is an exceptional brand to align with and this partnership will be an industry game changer.”
