The World Poker Tour has unveiled a new event date in Mainland China. The Tour will make a stop in Chengdu the capital of southwestern China’s Sichuan province.
Like all events in China, this event is invitational and will take place from 15 July to 21 July in The Longemont Chengdu Hotel. The prizepool will have a 5M RMB Guarantee (~US $724,942) and the field will be capped at 500 players. The full schedule will still need to be announced.
The World Poker Tour used to host only a single event per year in Mainland China but for 2017 ,the organization has unveiled a growing ambition in China. The Season XVI kicked off in Beijing with a victory by Pete Chen and the Chengdu event has been a surprise announcement that would be followed by the traditional Sanya stop.
It’s a significant progress for the Word Poker Tour who has been used to host only one event per year in Mainland China.
