Los Angeles, CA (14 de octubre de 2015) – After a record-breaking turnout in Season 2, where 55 entries generated a prize pool of nearly $5.4 million, World Poker Tour® today announced that WPT Alpha8™ will return to Bellagio for a $100,000 super high roller during the WPT® Five Diamond World Poker Classic. WPT Alpha8 Las Vegas will kick off at the historic home of the first-ever televised World Poker Tour event on Thursday, December 17, and all of the action in the three-day event will be filmed for broadcast on FOX Sports 1 en el verano de 2016.

Friends and fellow Las Vegas pros Andrew Lichtenberger and Tom Marchese finished in first and second places respectively in Season 2, and both banked million-dollar scores. Registration for WPT Alpha8 Las Vegas will be open until the start of Level 7, and players are allowed unlimited re-entries.

The WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic festival kicks off at Bellagio on December 4, and $1,090 buy-in super satellites to the Main Event begin on December 9.

In Season XIII, Mohsin Charania topped a field of 586 entries to capture the top prize of more than $1.4 million and added a diamond to his nameplate on the venerable WPT Champions Cup™ for winning his second World Poker Tour event. Season XIII WPT Ones to Watch Garrett Greer finished runner-up, earning nearly $900,000.

“World Poker Tour is proud to return to Bellagio, home to our very first televised event, for the WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic and WPT Alpha8 Las Vegas,” said WPT President Adam Pliska.“Coupling these two marquee events during Season XIII produced tremendous results, with the combined prize pool exceeding $11 million and three players earning more than $1 million. All of the action in both tournaments will be captured by the WPT cameras, and we look forward to crowning two new champions at the epicenter of poker this December.”

“We are proud to continue to host the WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic and WPT Alpha8,” said Craig Lumpp, Director of Poker Operations at Bellagio. “This event is so rich in tradition that every serious player looks to cap off their year here at Bellagio.
