Irvine, CA (October 19, 2023) – The World Poker Tour® has locked in the first half of the Season XXII schedule, offering an eclectic combination of seven WPT® Prime and four WPT Main Tour festivals across the globe from late January to early June.
“As we approach the end of Season XXI and the WPT World Championship, we are proud to share the schedule for the first half of Season XXII,” said WPT CEO Adam Pliska. “We worked vigorously with our casino partners to solidify dates for these impressive, value-packed festivals so that players may plan their 2024 schedules.”
Kicking off Season XXII is Main Tour stop WPT Cambodia at NagaWorld in Phnom Penh with the festival running Jan. 17-30 and the Championship event going Jan. 25-29.

Two more Main Tour festivals take place back-to-back in April and May. First, the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown festival runs from April 3-23. Drawing 2,290 entries in the $3,500 Championship event this year, Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood now lays claim to nine of the top ten largest fields in WPT history.
