The new poker television show ClubWPT launched on Oct. 5. The show features 6 poker amateurs each week from the US and Canada. The players will compete for a chance at cash prizes as well as the chance to become the next poker stars. Players must earn a seat on the show by competing in special tournaments at www.ClubWPT.com which will run 6 nights each week at 10pm EST.
Those who qualify will get roundtrip airfare to LA on Southwest Airlines, two-night accommodations at the Four Seasons Hotel West Lake Village, multiple VIP amenities and spending cash. The series will be filmed at the ClubWPT lounge with Alison Waite as hostess along with Barry Tompkins and Bart Hansen offering commentary and strategy.
“Poker is the only sport that allows the everyday Joe to go up against the professionals and win life-changing money and celebrity status,” said Steve Lipscomb, WPT Founder, President and CEO. “And we all want to be in that seat, but most of us don’t have the opportunity to invest the time or money to be a pro and play in big casinos games. ClubWPT.com gives you the opportunity – six nights a week, in your own home – to win a seat on national television and the chance to live the dream.”
