World Poker Tour begins 2010 with Southern Poker Championship

Posted by Gerry Poltorak on Jan 25, 2010 Posted in Tournament News, WPT News | No Comments »

The Southern Poker Championship is one of my favorite WPT stops –even though this is only the third year of the event—for one simple reason: The tournament has a simple 4-day format. No unnecessary flights for Day-1 play, no unnecessary 5th, 6th, or 7th day to draw out play, the Southern Poker Championship has none of this; it’s just a poker tournament.

Last year’s event saw 283 players compete for a first-prize of just over $1 million, which was taken home by Allen Carter from Dallas Texas. Last year’s tournament likely broke many poker fans’ hearts when Vanessa Rousso just missed the TV final table finishing in 7th place.

The WPT, which is no owned by Party Gaming, is looking to rebound from 2009’s shrinking attendance numbers to make sure the recently announce PokerStars North American Poker Tour doesn’t gain a foothold in the US poker tour market.
