Final Table to be Live Streamed on WPT.com Starting at 2:30pm on April 30
World Poker Tour finishes its last southern swing of Season XI with the popular WPT bestbet Open, sponsored by ClubWPT.com, which is expected to draw a strong field of the game’s top professional players to the felt in Jacksonville, Florida.
Running from April 26 – 30, this $3,500 event will feature two Day 1s with re-entry and have its final table live streamed on WPT.com. Marking World Poker Tour’s last US event before the start of its Championship Week at Bellagio in May, and one of the season’s last opportunities for players to gain valuable WPT Player of the Year points, the WPT bestbet Open is likely to play a pivotal role in determining which player walks away with the tour’s most coveted honor at the season’s end.
“It’s been a thrilling season so far with some amazing performances and one of the tightest Player of the Year races we’ve ever seen,” said WPT President Adam Pliska. “It’s particularly exciting to watch Matt Salsberg – a WPT champion who, until recently, has been better known for his work as Hollywood writer and producer on Entourage and Weeds – run neck-and-neck with some of the game’s most talented pros as they all try to become the WPT Player of the Year. Right now, it’s truly anybody’s race and we can’t wait to see who comes out on top.”
Players confirmed to attend the WPT bestbet Open include Salsberg, along with fellow WPT Champions Club members Matt Giannetti, Noah Schwartz, and Steve Brecher, WPT Season IX Player of the Year Andy Frankenberger, and WPT One to Watch Brian Hastings.
A favorite destination for WPT players and cast members alike, bestbet is running daily satellites to the WPT bestbet Open Main Event through the evening of April 25. The tournament’s final table will be live streamed on WPT.com starting at 2:30pm on Tuesday, April 30 and will be hosted by Raw Deal Analyst Tony Dunst.
