#wpbt final details + Pokerist.com Sponsorship!

Posted by in Poker, Vegas, WPBT

It’s time! If you’re not already on your way to the airport, perhaps you’re counting down the hours… either way, we’ll be seeing you soon. Here’s the schedule again along with some exciting news!


Sherwood Forest Bar at Excal – If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my years of organizing, it’s pointless to try and put a start time on the drinking. I suggest keeping an eye on the #wpbt hashtag, you’ll see when folks start gathering. I’d estimate anywhere from 5-8 as a start – really depends on when folks land. Please note that the Sherwood Forest Cafe, which was right around the corner from the bar, has been closed and is scheduled to reopen today as the Lynyrd Skynyrd Cafe & Bar. I’m told by the folks at Excal that this *does not* have an impact on the Sherwood Forest Bar and that it has not changes names, but you never know.


Beer drinkers unite at The Pub in Monte Carlo, starting at 4pm.
We have two tables at Aria starting at 6pm.


The big day. Tourney at noon, $125 buyin, follows the Aria daily tournament structure.

If you don’t have your last longer team in place, find Caity this weekend… because your good friend Jordan from HighOnPoker got a sponsorship with Pokerist.com and they’ll be adding $1,000 to the last longer prize pool. And there’s more…


Football. Games start at 10am, and per Falstaff’s suggestion, let’s go with The Pub at MonteCarlo. It’s close, easily accessible from Aria, and no doubt has beers you didn’t get to try Friday.
This again is one you’ll want to keep an eye on Twitter for; but keep in mind that Pokerist.com is also sponsoring $1,000 towards the bar tab for game-watching – so you’ll want to be where Jordan is! 🙂

See you soon gang! Remember, Twitter is the best way to keep up with where folks are, and find someone for breakfast, lunch, dinner at 3am. Don’t be shy, just jump on in.


And now, a word about our awesome sponsor!

What IS Pokerist.com?

Pokerist.com is a web project developed as a part of the information support network for the Texas Poker application by Kamagames Ltd.
Texas Poker is an application for mobile devices (iPhone, iPad, Android devices) and social networks. It is currently one of the most successful poker applications in the Apple App Store and Android Market. Millions of players all over the world play poker in this app daily. Yet it is not an online poker room – the game is just for fun and for the sake of sport, no real world money involved. The application is actively developed yet remaining quite simple to learn and play.
In the late spring 2011 the Pokerist.com website was launched with initial purpose to serve as online business card. But today with more than 15,000 unique online users daily it has totally overgrown the initial aim and now must focus on searching for more and more new ways to improve content to keep players happy. Just now developers are working on transforming the website into entire social platform for poker players all around the world.
