WPT’s February “triple bill”!

By Mad Harper

The WPT is tripling the action this month with three major events going on between now and February 28. We are the WPT’s official Travel Partner so you can take advantage of the very best rates for all your accommodation and travel needs.

The partypoker WPT Playground Winter Festival is already underway at the Playground Poker Club near Montreal with the C$1,000,000 guarantee Main Event starting February 10. The 16-event schedule also includes a $45,000 guarantee NL Six-Max tourney, $30,000 guarantee NL Hold'em Mega Stack Turbo and $15,000 guarantee Seniors Tournament.

The WPT’s second event this month is also in Canada – at the spectacular Fallsview Casino Resort right next to Niagara Falls. The dates for the overall festival are February 17 - 24 with the C$4700 + C$300 WPT Fallsview Poker Classic Main Event starting February 22.  Fallsview Casino Resort, dubbed Canada’s largest and most elegant gaming resort, is built on a cliff overlooking the world-famous Niagara Falls. As well as a gazillion slot machines and table games alongside a luxury hotel, Fallsview also has a 1,500 seat theatre so, if you tire of poker (or bust!), you can always go check out the Michael Jackson-themed “Man in the Mirror” show (February 17-19) or see award-winning comedian and actor Chris Rock (February 22-24).

WPT fun continues towards the end of February with the WPT LA Poker Classic at the Commerce Casino. The prestigious $10K buy-in Main Event runs February 25 to March 3 and is set to attract the biggest players in the world. Last year, WSOPE bracelet winner Dietrich Fast from Germany took it down for a career-best cash of $1,00,800.
