The World Poker Tour tackled new destinations last year with countries such as India and Japan added to their roster. This year, the adventure continues with a new stop just announced. Coming this summer is WPT New Zealand to be held at Skycity Auckland casino from May 25 – June 4 2018.
This announcement comes as great news for New Zealanders who haven’t seen a major international poker event in a couple of years. The last big festival was the Australia New Zealand Poker Tour (ANZPT) which has been on hiatus since 2016.
The upcoming festival WPT New Zealand will feature a NZ$2,200 buy-in Main Event. A total of nine events will be offered including the WPT Opening Event: Auckland Poker Championship, Six Max 30 Sec Shot Clock, High Rollers, and a couple of Freezeout tournaments.
