WPT Choctaw

 

Starting July 20, 2017, the World Poker Tour takes to Choctaw Casino Resort in Durant, Oklahoma, for the Season XVI WPT Choctaw festival. Highlighted by the televised WPT Choctaw $3,700 Championship that takes place August 4-8 and boasts a $2 million guarantee, the full WPT Choctaw schedule features a whopping 84 events when you include satellites.

In addition to the televised WPT Choctaw $3,700 Championship, big hitters on the Season XVI WPT Choctaw schedule include the big $200,000 Guarantee No-Limit Hold’em event, the ONE MILLION DOLLAR Guarantee Monster Stack, and the $5,300 High Roller.

There are two starting flights per day on July 21 and July 22, and 12 p.m. and 5 p.m. local time, and players are allowed reentry through Level 8 of each flight. Each starting flight will play until the end of Level 17 or until approximately six percent of the field remains, whichever comes first.
