PartyPoker - WPT VenicePublished on 2011-12-21 20:13:00
Established in 2002, the World Poker Tour (WPT) has quickly developed into one of the largest, most recognized and most lucrative series of poker tournaments anywhere in the world, and it draws many top professional players.
A key aspect of the WPT's success is its schedule. It's diverse and represents the world well. The WPT also does a good job of pruning. It isn't afraid to pull an event that underperforms, and each year it adds and changes venues.
The WPT added Venice in season eight. It was the first event that season, and it took place in May at the Casino Di Venezia. Only 397 participated, but the prize pool exceeded $2M and the winner took home more than $500,000.

For season nine, the tour placed WPT Venice later in the schedule, the thirteenth event, but earlier in the year, February. Once again, WPT Venice was a rousing success with more than 500 participants and a $2M prize pool.
The third WPT Venice took place in December 2011 as part of WPT season ten. It wouldn't break any participation records in its third year, but the prize pool was high, and there seemed to be more pros on hand than ever before.
PartyPoker, which is one of the largest and most popular online poker rooms, has long been the World Poker Tour's most important sponsor. One of the ways PartyPoker celebrates that partnership is through WPT promotions.
Once WPT Venice season ten completed, PartyPoker didn't waste any time setting up for the next season.
For 2012, PartyPoker will celebrate its affiliation with the WPT by giving its clients a chance to win a special, very valuable WPT Venice prize package. In fact, PartyPoker will give away at least five WPT Venice prize packages in all!
