World Poker Tour returns to The Venetian Las Vegas

The World Poker Tour continues to expand its 2022 schedule with the $5,000 buy-in WPT Venetian Las Vegas beginning on 12 July, which will have a $4,000,000 guaranteed prize pool. This marks the largest prize pool guarantee ever for a WPT Main Tour stop at The Venetian Las Vegas.

Additional WPT events will be hosted from 7 July - 17 July, as part of the DeepStack Championship Poker Series, beginning with a 1-day $1,100 buy-in event. Other notable tournaments include the aforementioned $5,000 buy-in Main Event, a $2,400 buy-in 3-day tournament beginning on July 8, and another single-day $1,100 buy-in event on 11 July.

“We look forward to continuing to build upon our storied history of premier tournament poker at The Venetian Resort this summer”, said Adam Pliska, CEO of World Poker Tour. “I am confident that players will be impressed by our joint efforts with The Venetian Resort to make this event bigger and better than ever.”

The most recent WPT tournament at The Venetian Resort was in July 2021, where the $5,000 Main Event approached 1200 entries for a prize pool of over $5,500,000. Chad Eveslage of Muncie, Indiana, was the eventual champion, taking home $910,370 and joining the ranks of the other winners in the WPT Champions Club.

Entrants into all events on the DeepStack Championship Poker Series schedule will be eligible for the WPT Player of the Festival leaderboard, which awards a $1,100 WPT Passport to the player with the most points over the course of each tournament festival.

“We’ve created another exciting summer for poker players at The Venetian Resort,” said Tommy LaRosa, tournament director for The Venetian Poker Room. “The DeepStack Championship Poker Series is a must-play series every summer and adding four WPT events furthers our commitment to offering our players as many options as possible when planning their summers in Las Vegas.” Since the first WPT Main Tour stop at Venetian in 2019, WPT events have cleared millions of dollars in prize pools across all held tournaments. WPT’s $5,000 buy-in events at The Venetian Resort in March and July of 2021 cleared $4 million and $5 million prize pools, respectively.

Players can qualify for the WPT Venetian Las Vegas Main Event through ClubWPT, which will award two $7,000 Main Event seat packages to ClubWPT players in the month of April.
