WPT Alpha8 Premieres Sunday, March 16 on FOX Sports 1
The World Poker Tour Alpha8, the brand's all-new, global series of super high-roller poker tournaments, will premiere Sunday, March 16, 2014 on FOX Sports 1 starting at 10 p.m. ET.
The first event to air will be the WPT Alpha8 Florida event that took place at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. The event generated 21 entries and awarded a top prize of $891,660.
While we won't spoil things for you too much (unless you'd like to read the event's recap by clicking here), we will tell you that Jason Mercier, Isaac Haxton, Matt Glantz, and JC Tran were amongst those to reach the final table.
The show will be hosted by Lynn Gilmartin with commentary from Ali Nejad and Olivier Busquet, and you can check out the preview video below:
The WPT Alpha8 has completed three events. Following the WPT Alpha8 Florida event, the tour traveled to London and then to St. Kitts. The next stop will be at the Emperors Palace Hotel Casino in Johannesburg, South Africa starting on February 14.
