World Poker Tour DeepStacks Future Plans

We can only assume that WPT’s branching out to lesser known venues is part of a bigger plan. World Poker Tour Vice-President Hermine Blum Europe acknowledged that their use of King’s Casino in Rozvadov was a trailblazing partnership. This is a first of many events to come. For any Kiwis who may not be able to attend any of the mention World Poker Tour events, they can play poker online at the best kiwi casinos online we recommend.
