The Word Poker Tour has announced its Season XVIII European schedule this weekend.
New season in partnership with 888poker and partypoker
The WPT is now entering its 18th season, having provided countless memorable moments in the history of poker.
The scope, and appeal of the WPT continues to grow each year, and its partnership with partypoker and 888Poker this season offers further evidence that the team involved in making these events happen is filled with qualities and ideas which will continue to enrich the global live poker scene for years to come.
One such idea will be seen in action this season, as players can play days 1 and 2 of selected WPT events online at partypoker, before playing day 3 live.
