The World Poker Tour announced the remaining schedule of Season XVI WPT® Main Tour events for 2017, featuring seven marquee poker venues and five televised events.

“At the World Poker Tour, we believe in strong, lasting partnerships with our casino partners, and I am delighted to welcome the return of Choctaw Casino Resort, The Bicycle Hotel & Casino, Borgata Hotel, Casino and Spa, Maryland Live!, bestbet Poker, Simulcast & Racing, Playground Poker Club, and Bellagio for Season XVI,” said Adam Pliska, CEO of the World Poker Tour. “Each of these venues helped make Season XV of the World Poker Tour our most-attended season in history, and we look forward to returning to these popular properties this year for seven world-class poker events.”

In addition to taking home the lion’s share of the prize pool, all winners of Season XVI World Poker Tour Main Tour events will have their name engraved on the prestigious WPT Champions Cup and earn a $15,000 seat into the season-ending WPT Tournament of Champions.
