Borgata, Bay 101 on Tap for 2nd Half of WPT Season 12


The World Poker Tour released the final seven Main Event stops for its 12th season today with every remaining tournament taking place in New Jersey, California or Florida.

Over the last seven events the WPT will hit up Commerce Casino, Bay 101, Seminole Casino Coconut Creek, bestbet Jacksonville, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood and the Borgata twice.

The first WPT tournament of the New Year will take place at the Borgata on Jan. 26. Season 12 will also end at the Borgata as this marks the first year the World Championship will take place somewhere other than Bellagio in Las Vegas.

“We are very excited about the depth and breadth of our Season XII schedule,” said WPT President, Adam Pliska.

“We’ve taken great care to ensure all of our players – whether they’re on the Main Tour or in our WPT Regional or WPT National events – enjoy world-class experiences at premier venues around the globe.”

The WPT also announced dates for nine regional stops including such diverse locations as England, Belgium and Denmark.

Here's the complete schedule for the remaining seven Main Event stops. For more information check out the WPT website.
