World Poker Tour: China as new destination

The World Poker Tour circuit will land in China in December 2012. In fact, the tournament organizers decided to add a Chinese step in the program of the eleventh season of the circuit. According to its CEO, Steve Heller, this stopover in China promises to be successful. He believes that China is full of thousands of poker enthusiasts who are waiting for an opportunity like this. They will then have the possibility to play poker in a totally professional setting without having to spend money to pay the travel expenses abroad. He hopes that this will be the beginning of a long series of professional events held in the country.

For this first edition of the WPT China which will run from December 14 to 17, the organizers chose MGM Grand Sanya resort to host the tournament. As usual, there will be a main event but the admission fee to this event is not yet unveiled to the public. But, the organizers hope to attract more than 60,000 players in the qualifiers for the main event they will offer. It should be noted that the field for the main event will be limited to 500 participants. While waiting the holding of this great event organized as part of the expansion of the WPT, a rich program still awaits players. After the step of Malta and Atlantic City, the WPT Emperors Palace Poker Classic will be the next appointment. The event will take place from October 22 to 26. Then, the WPT will visit Jacksonville and Copenhagen before returning to Montreal, Morocco and Prague.
