What is the WPT
The WPT is a series of poker tournaments that take place internationally. The final table of each event is broadcast live on TV. The winner of each event wins a coveted WPT bracelet.
The WPT was purchased by Ourgame International Holdings Ltd in June this year from Party Gaming. The cost was an incredible $35,000,000, demonstrating the true popularity of the WPT brand.
