It’s been a big year for the WPT…and it’s still January.
The tour has expanded with the Alpha8, which begins airing soon. It has landed a mainstream corporate sponsor (Monster headphones). And it’s parent company, bwin.party, is crushing in New Jersey.
Joining us for a look ahead at 2014 is WPT head Adam Pliska.
A key point in the podcast–the more we look at it, the more we realize poker is healthy and booming. WPT and HPT are seeing record ratings. The WSOP is still increasing in year-over-year growth. Mainstream sponsors are finally trickling in. More tours are popping up. The market has matured–it’s not the early boom gold rush–but shit ain’t worth complaining over either.
Give the podcast a listen. A few more to come soon…
