New World Poker Tour season a marketing tool for World Poker Tour pinball!
As people fantasize about achieving the New American Dream, they can tune into the WORLD POKER TOUR(r) (WPT) for their inspiration, watching nearly two dozen overnight millionaires minted on the most sizzling show on television, the WORLD POKER TOUR's new Season IV, debuting March 8 on The Travel Channel at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
Awarding an astounding $100 million in prize money-10 times the amount in the show's first season-the 17-tournament series brings together the hottest newcomers in the game to compete against poker's icons. It's a toss-up every week whether raw aggressive nerve can outlast the canny wisdom of experience. With more than $1 million at stake for first prize nearly every week, the take-no-prisoners brand of WPT action keeps viewers riveted to their seats, wondering, "What would I do?"
The WORLD POKER TOUR is the international tour of high-stakes tournaments that launched the global poker phenomenon in March 2003 by turning poker into a televised sports sensation, complete with WPT cams that revealed the players hole cards. Catching on like wildfire, the show became the highest-rated show ever on the Travel Channel and has spawned a passion for the game in living rooms, card rooms and casinos everywhere. In 2006, the WORLD POKER TOUR will be seen not only in millions of living rooms across America, but in more than 130 countries and territories worldwide.
Hosts Mike Sexton, Vince Van Patten and Friel offer insights into the minds and strategies of players that help viewers refine their own poker skills. The WPT has taken the lead in poker education with its WPT Boot Camp, traveling fantasy camp for poker players; online poker school (www.worldpokertour.com) and a series of WPT-branded books from Harper Collins.
