Vietnam, Cambodia and Taiwan have been named as the first stops for a new global poker brand to be launched as part of the World Poker Tour (WPT) in 2022.
WPT Prime, which replaces WPTDeepStacks,
“combines the best poker tournaments on the WPT Main Tour with affordable buy-ins available to more players around the world,” says the WPT announcement of the new tour.
The very first stop of WPT Prime will be the Crown Poker Club in Hanoi, Vietnam, from May 19 to May 30, 2022. The tour will then visit NagaWorld in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, from August 11 to 23, and then head to Chinese Texas Hold’em. Poker Association in Taipei, Taiwan, from November 11 to 21.
By then, the final WPDeepStacks tournaments will be held in Amsterdam, Sydney and California’s Thunder Valley.
“Our ongoing efforts to improve the WPT live tournament experience will benefit more players than ever during the XX season,” said Kathy Zhao, WPT Senior Director of Global Tour Management.
“WPT Prime is the embodiment of our goal to provide players around the world with the best poker tournament experience, and our close relationship with our global partners will improve the quality of WPT service worldwide.”
The company stated that additional WPT Prime events will be added to the WPT XX season schedule in the coming weeks and months.
