Since 2004, the World Poker Tour has had a late winter swing through the state of California, with the L.A. Poker Classic in Los Angeles followed closely by the Bay 101 Shooting Star in San Jose.

Two seasons ago, with the addition of WPT Rolling Thunder, this segment of the tour was named the WPT California Swing — three back-to-back-to-back tournaments with their own leaderboard and a special prize package awarded to the player who finishes with the most points.

Here are the dates for the three tournaments on the WPT California Swing:

February 27 – March 3
WPT L.A. Poker Classic
Commerce Casino in Commerce, CA

March 7-11
WPT Bay 101 Shooting Star
Bay 101 Casino in San Jose, CA

March 12-16
WPT Rolling Thunder
Thunder Valley Casino in Lincoln, CA

To be eligible, players must enter all three events. Players will earn points based on how deep they finish in each events. (The points system will be the same as last year, with details published soon.)

Last year’s winner was Taylor Paur, who won the WPT Bay 101 Shooting Star, and cashed in third place at the final table of WPT Rolling Thunder.
