This year’s WPT (World Poker Tour) World Championship, to be held at Wynn Las Vegas, will offer players a massive $15m guaranteed prize pool, making it the largest live tournament guarantee in the game’s history.

The main event of a dozen-tournament series that runs from December 1st to 20th is the $10,400 buy-in World Championship event, described by the World Poker Tour’s CEO, Adam Pliska, as “one of the most ambitious initiatives the World Poker Tour has undertaken in our 20-year history,” adding that “we expect this to be a highly anticipated festival and are elated to be partnering with Wynn Las Vegas to bring this concept to life.”

Angelica Hael, VP of Global Tour Management at WPT, commented: “We are absolutely thrilled with our multi-year partnership with Wynn Las Vegas. Alongside the WPT Prime Championship and various off-the-felt activities planned, the WPT World Championship festival puts a historic exclamation point on the WPT Season 20.”
