The World Poker Tour (WPT) Organizes Its Own ‘March Madness’ Contest

The World Poker Tour (WPT) is partaking in some March Madness fun. But instead of hosting a college basketball office pool, the WPT has a 64-player poker bracket for fans to vote on.

Coinciding with the start of the 2016 NCAA Tournament, college basketball’s biggest event, the WPT is asking poker fans to vote for the best WPT champion of all time.

To do so, over at WPT’s official website, fans of the popular television poker series must make some difficult choices as to which poker players are most deserving of advancing to the next round.

The first round of voting has already concluded, but the second round of voting is open until March 21. There are 32 players left in the field, with 16 selections to be made. Players were seeded in a similar format to the NCAA Tournament. The voting began with 64 players seeded based on overall career performance in WPT events.

There are four brackets (Spades, Diamonds, Hearts, and Clubs). Each bracket has 16 players seeded 1-16 based on WPT performance. The winner in each heads-up match every round is determined by the number of votes. Read More on
