World Poker Tour Expands Licenses

WPTE has announced the global expansion of its World Poker Tour(R) (WPT) with the signing of two licensing agreements to stage regional versions in Canada and the Philippines.

 

Steve Lipscomb, CEO and founder of WPT Enterprises, Inc. revealed that the company has completed agreements with ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corp, the largest integrated media and entertainment company in the Philippines, and Aidan Tracey, a respected Canadian marketing/ sponsorship/promotion expert, to offer multi-tournament WPT Tours in card rooms and casinos in their own countries beginning in early 2006.

The events will feature WPT-style Texas Hold’em tournaments expected to draw hundreds of players for increasingly growing prize pools at each stop.

“We are very pleased to be able to bring the WPT to the fans in other countries who have been itching to try their hand at making a WPT FinalTable,” said Lipscomb.
