WPT Alpha8 announces first two stops for Season 2
Posted by Defrag, July 21
The World Poker Tour officials announced that Palm Beach Casino in London and Bellagio in Las Vegas are going to be the first two stops for Season 2 of the World Poker Tour Alpha8 tour.

First stop will take place October 6-7, 2014. This will be the second time when Palm Beach Casino in Mayfair is hosting a WPT Alpha8 event, and this time it will be a £60,000 buy-in tournament, making it considerably lower from the last years £100,000 buy-in. Last year Philipp Gruissem managed to snag the victory, collecting £862,400.

Bellagio in Las Vegas will have a $100,000 buy-in and the event is expected between December 18-20. This is the first time Bellagio will host a WPT Alpha8 event, and this tournament will be also televised, while the event in London will be not.

"We are truly honored to announce WPT Alpha8 London and WPT Alpha8 Las Vegas as our first events of WPT Alpha8 Season 2," said WPT President Adam Pliska. "Not only are we returning to one of the most prestigious locations in the world at the Palm Beach Casino in Mayfair, but we are also bringing WPT Alpha8 to the home of high-stakes poker at Bellagio in Las Vegas, where we are already expecting to draw one of the largest fields in WPT Alpha8 history."
