A Statement from World Poker Tour President and CEO Adam Pliska Regarding WPT’s Televised Final Tables

Mar 17, 2020

WPT Champions Cup

For 18 years the WPT has provided a unique player and fan-friendly environment within our industry. We have also adapted to multiple changes throughout the gaming landscape as they have arisen.

Due to the evolving circumstances surrounding the current crisis, the WPT will postpone its televised final tables set to tape between March 31 and April 2 at HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas. With public health welfare a priority and in line with government and agency directives, we will tentatively look to hold these tables in May with our second set of televised final tables. Further, we will communicate any other schedule changes to ongoing tournaments and events on WPT.com.

We are cognizant of the impact current conditions have on the industry as a whole, and we commend our casino partners on their deliberate action to protect their guests and employees by temporarily postponing their events and in many cases closing their doors.

With in-person play severely curtailed, we are introducing our first WPT Online Series on partypoker in May. Further, the WPT has increased the number and size of events and promotions on ClubWPT to the highest level in its 10-year history.

And finally, we will be airing new episodes on FSN, as well as back-to-back classic episodes on Pluto TV, among many other OTT platforms. We invite you to continue to participate and enjoy WPT poker offerings through these avenues, as well as to return to our tournaments after we resume our normal scheduling.

We greatly appreciate the support of our players and viewers, as you have kept us going for nearly two decades. Your continued support will ensure that the WPT will be able to provide the unique and high-quality experiences you have come to expect from us.

As part of this extraordinary community, while adapting to unprecedented conditions, I am confident that, as in the past, together we will endure and find ways to meet the challenges of these times. In the meantime, we remain committed to all our players, fans, and partners and to our guiding principle that the best is yet to come.

Sincerely,
Adam Pliska
CEO
WPT Enterprises, Inc.
