World Poker Tour Legends Begins

World Poker Tour Legends Begins

It’s that time of year, poker fans.  The World Poker Tour Legends of Poker begins on August 25.

The event is being held in the Bicycle Casino in Bell Gardens, California.  They inked a deal last year that gave them a five-year extension, keeping the 20-event series there through 2015.

The main event will be the first televised event of the season.  Fox Sports Net will carry the broadcast.  In addition, the main event will be webcast live on LiveattheBike.com.  The series began in July and already there have been millions of dollars in prize money awarded.

Officials with this event believe the prize pool will reach close to $3 million.  This is because the buy-in was lowered and there are also two days for re-entry into the tournament.  If a player is eliminated on day 1A, they can choose to buy-in to day 1B’s game.

In last year’s game, Andy Frankenberger won the $750,000 pot and then went on to win season nine World Poker Tour Player of the Year.
