WPT Announces the acquisition of Deepstack Poker Tour

Deepstacks Poker Tour which started organizing live tournaments in the US in 2012 is now 100% owned by the World Poker Tour (WPT). As such the WPT® will be in full control of WPTDeepStacks operations.

WPTDeepStacks which initially partnered with the WPT® in 2014, was created to replace the WPT Regional and DeepStacks Poker Tour brands in Europe and in the US.  The partnership led to growth of the WPTDeepStacks tour, generating more than $10 million in total prize pools.

WPT, bordered by the support of our parent company Ourgame, is currently looking for strategic, friendly acquisition opportunities of businesses and management teams that reflect our brand and company values. We feel WPTDeepStacks is a model of this initiative.”
