World Poker Tour announces Cyprus venue

Wednesday, 15 July 2009

The World Poker Tour has announced that Merit Crystal Cove Hotel and Casino will be the venue for WPT Cyprus that takes place from 4th to 12th September. The week-long festival will culminate in a $10,000 + $300 main event starting on 6th September.

A host of top players including Antonio "the Magician" Esfandiari, Dan Harrington, Kelly Kim, Howard "the Professor" Lederer, and Huck Seed are expected to take part.

"We've proven that we are an organization with international-standard infrastructure in Cyprus," said Grand Casino Club General Manager Aydogan Turay. "Due to the moderate Mediterranean climate and the professional casino staff, we have seen an increase in players coming to Cyprus, despite it being relatively new. We look forward to bringing the WPT to Merit Cove Casino and growing our reputation as a top international casino destination."

Satellites are currently running at Full Tilt Poker.
