Question Wpt Buyout...

This was some interesting reading. But the investors making the offer have not been able to finalize (lock down) the capital for the offer. And besides, the shareholders would have to approve it before it could happen...not to sure that they are happy about the POSSIBLE offer. Last I heard/read the actual offer has not been made. Sounds more like a hostile takeover IMHO

i last heard that he risked his fortune buying the WPT...i can't call it a risk because poker is a growing sport so it's a big investment...

Cheers,

Default Great Investment

Best of luck to Doyle and his group of investors in trying to acquire the WPT stocks.

I hope he gets it coz he represents everything that is good in poker.

You say "won"...I assume you're talking about the Championship at the Bellagio. The final table there was

Paul Maxfield, the sole amateur, an entrepreneur from the UK

Hasan Habib, a top pro in his 2nd Championship final table

Phil Ivey, a WPT fixture, in his 6th final table, 2 of them at Championships

Tuan Le, winner at Foxwoods, the only Season 3 champion to make the final table

John the Razor Phan, a top journeyman pro from Long Beach, CA

Rob Hollink, a skilled international pro from the Northern Netherlands


Winner was Tuan Le.


If you're looking for info on another tourney, check the WPT website - they'll have it all there.
