World Poker Tour Episodes Head to Bollywood

This hot indian model has nothing to do with the World Poker Tour broadcasting in India

We’d like to curry favor with this hot girl from India, where the WPT is going to broadcast its Season IV.

In what will be great news to our billions of readers who are snake charmers, call center service reps and elephant-riding cricket fans, season IV of the World Poker Tour will be broadcast in India starting this September on Zee Sports, the country’s first private sports channel.

According to a press release:

"Zee Sports will exclusively broadcast nineteen two-hour WPT Season IV episodes in India. Zee Sports will promote the WPT series on-air and online through its website www.zeesports.co.in. It will broadcast the episodes alongside current sports programming such as football, cricket, tennis, motor sports and golf. The series is scheduled to begin airing in September."

WPT was silent on whether embarrassingly infectious song-and-dance numbers would be added to the episodes to increase the show’s appeal.

Of note, season IV took place in 2005-2006, which is when Joe Bartholdi won the WPT Championship, and up-runner the was Matthew Davidson fave Poker Chops Wicked.
