The World Poker Tour (WPT) has strengthened the Season XII tour with an additional stop in Niagra Falls, Canada, taking the total combined Main Event stops to 22.
The World Poker Tour (WPT) continues to pour some sugar on Canada, after the announcement that the entourage will drop anchor in the beautiful Niagra Falls in February 2014.
WPT Fallsview Poker Classic is the 22nd event of the Season XII calendar and will culminate in a CAD $5,000 single-entry WPT Main Event to be held February 22-24 at the Fallsview Casino Resort just outside of Toronto.
“Poker is more popular than ever in Canada, and our players have been asking us to add another WPT stop north of the border,” said WPT President Adam Pliska. “We’re thrilled to accommodate them by adding this great new event to the tour, and we look forward to another fantastic event on Canadian soil.”
The Main Event will be supported by a decent side event structure that includes a CAD $1,100 and CAD $2,500 tournament.
“The return of the WPT is exciting news for all talented and notable poker enthusiasts,” said Greg Medulun, Director of Communications with Fallsview Casino Resort and Casino Niagara. “Our casino is well-suited to host what will be a definite sold-out event given the added excitement WPT brings.”
The venue is a stunning one with players gaining the opportunity to visit the world-famous Niagra Falls, the Botanical Gardens and the Butterfly Conservatory.
