With buy-ins starting at $100,000 per entry, WPT Alpha8 events aren’t for everyone.
But, while an A8 tournament may not attract hundreds of entrants, these exclusive tournaments make up for their smaller size with an abundance of poker talent. Take WPT Alpha8 Florida, for example. This first-ever A8 event attracted 18 of the game’s best and best-known players to the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida where they competed for a prize pool worth more than $2 million.
Tune in to the premiere episode of WPT Alpha8 on FOX Sports 1 at 9pm ET/6pm PT, Sunday, March 16 to watch pros like Isaac Haxton, Jason Merier, Andrew Lichtenberger, J.C. Tran, Erik Seidel, Jason Koon, and Daniel Alaei show you what the game looks like when its played at its highest level for its highest stakes.
