The WPT Season XIV 2nd half announced

The World Poker Tour has announced details of the 2nd half of this seasons schedule, and the big news is that the WPT Championship is gone, to be replaced by the WPT Tournament of Champions.

This will be a $15,400 invitational tournament, reserved for season XIV champions and WPT Champions Club members only.

“By combining Season XIV winners and WPT Champions Club members, the season-ending WPT Tournament of Champions will truly be a championship event,” said WPT President and CEO Adam Pliska. “We will promote the ‘champion of champions’ to our millions of television viewers and to the thousands of players in the community for seasons to come, solidifying the winner’s place in the World Poker Tour’s rich history.”
