Default Next season

My Wednesday nights have revolved around this for the last two years. I sit down to play $55 sitngo's on Pokerstars and watch the WPT event for the week. Used to be with a glass of wine, scratch that, bottle or two , but have since gotten sober. not sure if it has helped or hurt my poker game.

Anyways, when does next season start? ANyone know?

No but I cannot wait for it to start. I do the same thing as you but not with wine.

Website doesn't say when the next season starts, but they just started the tourneys, so I imagine it will be a while. There is a new episode on the 31st though, if that helps to hold you over.

the next season of wpt should be a dandy, im mostly looking forward the partypoker million tournament, i think the competition in that one is so much more competitive from the rest...wpt is a great show i love the commentators and the players, i think you gotta be the best to win on the wpt....what was everyones favourite wpt episode? may favourite was when doyle won an event, that should cap off

I was in Las Vegas at the time of the final event in April. Let me tell you the place was packed. This event gets a lot of publicity from the shows. They do a good job of presenting (although not as good as the WSOP in my opinion).

There was a real draw to the WSOP when it was held at Binions. it was Downtown, which gave it a sense of history...You could get away from Binions and go to another casino...you just knew when you were there the ghosts of the great poker players were around you. Now that it has gone to the Rio, I don't think it has the same mystique. The Rio venue, while easier to get around and having more space, was very generic. I know it was the right 'corporate' move to move the tourney to a venue where they could 'trap' the entrants into their casino (Notice they didnt have it at Harrah's, they had it in an off strip location so you couldn't get back and forth easy), but it became a very generic event in a big box casino. A lot of the newcomers won't notice a difference, but I did.

What I am trying to say is that I really look forward to the new season. I wouldn't be surprised if in a few years the WPT becomes the preeminant poker tourney and surpasses the WSOP.

I don't know that I'd bet on the WPT over-taking the WSOP. I figure as long as the top pros consider the WSOP as the preeminent event, the rest of the poker world will basically follow suit.
