The PokerStars NAPT has barely left after crowning a champion and giving out a $725,000 first prize but The Bicycle Casino in Los Angeles can look forward to more televised tournaments after the World Poker Tour announced a renewal for the Legends of Poker Tournament.

“The Bicycle Casino has been an enthusiastic and devoted venue partner and the WPT is proud to continue its association with the incredibly popular Legends of Poker event and the team behind it,” said WPT President Adam Pliska. “The Bicycle Casino is a charter member of the WPT and this extension will allow us to build on a tradition of collaboration and best-in-class poker started in 2002.”

The Legends of Poker Main Event has always attracted a strong and prestigious field with previous winners including Doyle Brunson, Dan Harrington and John Phan. Last year the $5,000 Championship was won by Andy Frankenberger for $750,000 after beating a 462-strong field.
