Los Angeles, CA (February 14, 2017) – Fallsview Casino Resort hosts the fourth World Poker Tour® Fallsview Poker Classic starting on Friday, February 17, 2017. The series features four events, highlighted by the WPT® Fallsview Poker Classic C$5,000 Main Event taking place February 22-24.
As one of Canada’s most buzzed about destination casinos, Fallsview Casino Resort has earned a reputation as one of the season’s most anticipated stops on the tour. In addition to stunning Niagara Falls views, Fallsview Casino Resort offers a world-class combination of gaming, dining, and live entertainment along with a Four-Diamond hotel and luxurious spa amenities.
“We’re thrilled to welcome the World Poker Tour back to heat things up in Niagara Falls, Canada this winter,” said Richard Taylor, President of Fallsview Casino Resort. “High-caliber events like the World Poker Tour generate great excitement amongst our patrons and staff, and we’re excited to introduce the WPT’s talented players and enthusiastic fans to the one-of-a-kind gaming and entertainment experience we offer at Fallsview Casino Resort.”
“It is the World Poker Tour’s pleasure to return to beautiful Niagara Falls for the fourth consecutive WPT Fallsview Poker Classic,” said Adam Pliska, CEO of the World Poker Tour. “Fallsview Casino Resort is home to some of the most memorable moments in WPT history, including the second of three WPT titles for Anthony Zinno when he won the WPT Fallsview Poker Classic Main Event in Season XIII. We look forward to a great event and the crowning of a new WPT champion.”
Last season’s WPT Fallsview Poker Classic Main Event attracted a field of 423 entries and generated a prize pool of more than C$1.9 million. Canada’s David Ormsby scored first place for his first WPT title and a career-best payday of C$383,407.
