World Poker Tour Kicks off Sizzling Season

317 players turn up to take part in this season’s events

Friday 27th May 2005

The World Poker Tour launched its 5th season at The Mirage with another record-setting tournament. 317 international players, both amateur and professional turned out for the event that boasts a first prize of $1,128,278 and a total of over $3,000,000.

'The launch of our fourth season is especially gratifying,' said Steve Lipscomb, Founder and CEO of WPT Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ: WPTE). 'We've clearly outlived the skeptics who said that the WPT was just a fad. The game continues to grow in popularity both at the professional and home game level, thanks to our success. As a professional sports league, we are maturing and expanding, providing great entertainment for our fans and a steadily increasing amount of prize money for our players.'
