Wednesday May 18,2016 : WORLD POKER TOUR SEASON XV SCHEDULE RELEASED
Party Poker WPT Passport introduced.
The World Poker Tour (WPT) has released details of the full WPT Main Tour schedule for Season XV.
This season introduces the partypoker WPT Passport, partypoker WPT Caribbean in Punta Cana, and the WPT Festival Championship.
World Poker Tour and partypoker have joined forces to launch the WPT Passport in Season XV, allowing online qualifiers to choose which partypoker-sponsored event they will attend upon winning their $5,000 package.
WPT Passport super satellites run daily and feed into a $530 buy-in WPT Passport satellite, where at least one $5,000 package is guaranteed. Each WPT Passport winner has 12 months to decide which WPT Main Event they wish to play in.
The partypoker WPT Caribbean festival returns in Season XV, kicking off on November 19 at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana.
World Poker Tour’s inaugural WPT Festival Championship in Season XV will see each Main Tour stop award one seat to the Main Event through a tournament consisting only of winners from preliminary events of the festival leading up to the Main Event.
Each WPT Festival Champion will earn a bespoke trophy and access to VIP off-the-felt activities, on top of their seat in the WPT Main Tour event at that property.
In addition, live-streamed final tables on the World Poker Tour will debut a new look in Season XV, in collaboration with ShareHand Inc. Over and above enhanced graphics packages and a new, custom set for non-televised WPT final tables, fans from around the globe will enjoy additional content from their favorite players during broadcasts on PlutoTV, Twitch, and YouTube.
Most of WPT’s live-streamed final tables will also be broadcast throughout Asia with Chinese commentary, reaching millions of poker fans across the burgeoning region.
