World Poker Tour Coming into Your TV as a Series

WPT Alpha8

Do you know how many people troop to big land-based casinos or travel all around the world just to watch a poker game? Or how many desire to join in one and have the chance of winning millions of dollars but are scared because they feel they don’t know anything about poker? Well, there’s a brilliant solution for both: watch it in your TV.

Broadcasting poker tournaments is nothing new, but World Poker Tour, the demi-god of all these tourneys, has come up with something more unique and way more interesting. Starting next year, March 2014, we can now comfortably watch their world-renowned poker competitions not just once for a series through WPT Alpha8. Yes, it’s going to be like any reality show, but this one will be authentic, rich, and—admit it—exciting than any other.

Most of the elements you learn to love about World Poker Tour are found in Alpha8. All tournaments will still carry millions of dollars in prizes. For a player to officially join, he or she needs to pay the huge buy-in worth a hundred thousand dollars. That’s just a small portion of the challenge. Players get to meet and compete with equally powerful and genius poker players from all over the world. Speaking of global, the series will take you to all big continents, from North America to South Africa and Asia. They will begin the tour in Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, which has been a perennial venue for WPT for more than 10 seasons.

As for its airing, the shoot starts this August 2013 and will be played on March 2014 at Fox Sports 1. Each event is going to last for 4 hours, so there’s a lot of time to tackle more comprehensive poker strategies and in-depth player profiles.
