World Poker Tour National Korea Cancelled

Official Statement

Due to factors beyond our control, the World Poker Tour (WPT) today announced the cancellation of WPT National Korea scheduled for March 17-21, 2017, at Paradise Casino at Jeju Grand.

As you may be aware, several major airline carriers have suspended air travel in the region. In the best interest of our players, the event will no longer be taking place.

The WPT regrets any inconvenience this may cause and appreciates your understanding. If you have any questions regarding this cancellation notice, please email events@wpt.com.
