2008 World Series of Poker



The Professional Poker Tour will finally hit the airwaves in the 3rd quarter of 2006. WPT and the Travel Channel have resolved their differences after a lawsuit filing. The lawsuit was filed in California Superior Court by WPT Enterprises against the Travel Channel in September 2005. WPT Enterprises wanted to keep the Travel Channel from interfering with it's negotiations with a 3rd party in relation to televising the episodes. Now that there are both PPT and WPT episodes available, this means that 44 showings of top rated poker play will be up for viewing.

What will make this exciting is that only the top 200 players in the world who have proven records of tournament winning play will be allowed to compete. This is different from the "anyone can enter and play" environment of the World Poker Tour. Invited players have to qualify for a "tour card" which means they have proven themselves at a top level of player proficiency by being successful at WPT events, the World Series of Poker Main Event or become a member of the Poker Hall of Fame. For the first season of the PPT, Mark Seif who won 2 events at the 2005 World Series of Poker and and actor/poker player Matt Corboy will be the hosts. To qualify for the first season, a player must meet the following criteria:

Three Year Tour Cards

  • All WPT Champions (i.e. winners of any WPT Regular Season Event)
  • Anyone who made more than one final table in a particular season of the WPT
