What is World Poker Tour?

Friday, February 19th, 2010

The World Poker Tour was incepted by Steve Lipscomb, which is a series of poker tournaments organised all across the world. Most of these tournaments are held in US. At each of the other locations, smaller tournaments are held which lead to the main no-limit Hold’em event. The final table games are the ones that you see on TV. These WPT shows were broadcasted on TV in 2002, on Travel Channel. These were 2 hour shows on TV, showcasing 6 players in the end competing for the main prize. For the first time ever, ‘hole cams’ were used that enabled the viewers to see the cards of the players.
