The World Poker Tour travells all over the world and arrange big money poker tournaments for the best poker players in the World. The Travel Channel broadcasted the first event in March 2003 and it became an instant success.
Approximately three million viewers a week watched the WPT. This made the WPT the highest rated program on the Travel Channel at the time, and the second highest rated show on the Travel Channel ever.
The poker game played at the WPT is Texas Hold'em and the TV commentators are Mike Sexton and Vincent Van Patten. They call the play-by-play action and analyse the strategy while giving their personal insights into the player's abilities.
The World Poker Tour
consists of 14 poker tournaments each season and each tournament is held at different locations around the world. Bellagio(Las Vegas), Foxwoods Resort Casino (Mashantucket), CT Aviation Club de France (Paris, France), and Borgata in Atlantic City are some of the casinos hosting the WPT.
The main reason for the World Poker Tours success, is due to the fact that the viewers can see which cards each player is raising, calling, folding or bluffing with and at the same time listen to the commentary from Mike Sexton and Vincent Van Patten on the players' strategies.
