World Poker Tour announces schedule for second half of 2024

Hot on the heels of the WPT Rolling Thunder Main Event, the World Poker Tour announced the schedule for the second half of the 2024 season, truly bringing the “world” to the World Poker Tour.

“The first half of the XXII. “The season was outstanding,” said WPT CEO Adam Pliska Last week’s revelation. “Looking ahead to the second half of the season, we believe there is much to get excited about for poker players as we will host festivals on four different continents with sensational global casino partners.”

With a focus on the Main Tour, the first stop in the second half of 2024 is the WPT Macau, taking place at Wynn Palace from June 18th to 24th. The championship event will take place from June 20th to 24th and has a buy-in of HKD40,000 (USD$5,111).

In September we’re heading to Australia for the WPT Australia, which will take place from September 12th to 25th and will be hosted at The Star Gold Coast, south of Brisbane. The final table of the A$8,000 (US$5,187) championship event, scheduled for September 20-25, will be livestreamed.

The remaining stops of the Main Tour will take place again in the United States, starting with the WPT bestbet Scramble from October 31st to November 19th at bestbet Jacksonville. The $5,000 championship event is scheduled for November 15-19 and will be broadcast live on bestbetLive.

The WPT Seminole Hard Rock ‘N’ Roll Poker Open remains in Florida and will take place from November 20th to December 4th. The $3,500 buy-in championship runs from November 29th to December 4th. The final table will also be streamed live.

And there is no doubt that the 2024 World Poker Tour season will conclude with the WPT World Championship at Wynn Las Vegas. The tour hasn’t released any details about it yet, but there’s absolutely no reason to believe it won’t be gigantic, just like the first two.

The first WPT World Championship (at least in its current form) in 2022 had an insane $15 million guarantee, the largest live tournament guaranteed prize pool ever. And it worked – it attracted 2,960 entries and generated a prize pool of almost $30 million. Additionally, players gave the entire experience rave reviews.

Encouraged by the success of 2022, the WPT went crazy in 2023, securing $40 million for the WPT World Championship. There were around 900 more entries than the year before, but the guarantee was not met. But a guarantee is just that, a guarantee, and the World Poker Tour was happy to provide the overlay. Once again the players had a fantastic time.

Two WPT stops are currently underway: the WPT Korea, which began on Thursday, and the WPT Voyage Championship, which began today on a cruise ship, the Virgin Voyages Valiant Lady.
