The World Poker Tour Championship is one of the most prestigious titles in poker. For the first time since the inception of the WPT, the championship moved from the Bellagio in Las Vegas to the Borgata in Atlantic City.
With the new venue came several changes, including a new price tag. This year’s championship is just a $15,000 buy-in as opposed to $25,000 in the past. Other changes include a guaranteed $5 million prize pool with $1.35 million to the winner.
As the WPT Championship kicked off on Monday, some wondered whether the modifications would prove to be +EV for the casino. Fortunately, they have proven positive as this year’s field more than doubled that of 2013.
Day 1a of the WPT Championship on Monday drew a solid field of 105 players, including four Team Ivey Pros. Some of the big names taking their shot on Day 1a included 13-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth, Paul Volpe, Matt Stout, Chris Moorman, Eugene Katchalov, Faraz Jaka, Eric Baldwin and Matt Glantz.
