World Poker Tour Announces Official Season VI Line-Up

World Poker Tour Announces Official Season VI Line-Up 0001

Today the World Poker Tour announced its official Season VI tournament schedule with some new and interesting additions. The schedule includes 19 regular tournament stops and a WPT staple themed event, Ladies Night V. Additional themed events will be announced at a later date.

Notable additions to the line-up include a stop at the Caribbean's Turks and Caicos Islands September 25-30, 2007. Also new on the schedule is the October 12-16, 2007 event in Barcelona, Spain. The WPT also added a new US stop on the tour. The sumptuously renovated Beau Rivage Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi will play host to an event September 6-9, 2007. The WPT also plans to forego the Bellagio's Festa al Lago this year and has opted instead to go head-to-head with the WSOP main event with the Bellagio Cup III which will run July 10-15, 2007.

Missing from the schedule is an event in France, once targeted to kick off Season VI. Like other poker tours, the WPT previously announced it was unable to come to terms with France's new regulatory hurdles. Season VI will now kick off with the Mirage Poker Showdown on May 19th.

"It's important to continue delivering fresh and exciting experiences for our players and fans on both the tournament and television level," said Steve Lipscomb, Founder, President and Chief Executive Officer of the WPT. "By adding WPT stops in beautiful locations around the world coupled with our move to a gaming-dedicated network like GSN, season six is poised to be the best year yet."

The complete schedule can be found below. Season VI will start airing on Monday nights early in 2008 on the WPT's new network home, GSN.
