The World Poker Tour announced via a press release sent on Wednesday that they have signed a 5-year extension with the Bicycle Casino in Bell Gardens, California that will keep the Legends of Poker tournament series on the WPT roster through 2015.

The Legends of Poker is one of the longest running poker tournaments on the WPT, having been introduced during the WPT’s first Season. 9 Seasons later the Legends of Poker is still one of the most coveted titles on the WPT and a favorite destination of many poker players.

World Poker Tour President Adam Pliska had this to say regarding the new deal: “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.”

Bicycle Casino Director of Marketing Kelly O’Hara said “It is very evident that the WPT made significant enhancements across the board this year and has plans to continue to do so in the future. We believe these changes are resonating with our players and with us. We’ve had nine great seasons together and look forward to at least five more. I believe together we’ll continue to offer players a better experience during every year of this deal.”

The 2010 Legends of Poker tournament was won by Andy Frankenberger and will air on FSN in early 2011.This year’s WPT Legends of Poker main event saw a 66% attendance increase over the previous year, echoing the sentiments expressed by Kelly O’Hara above.

Remember you also don’t need to go to a Casino to play Video Poker, as you can now play Online Video Poker for Real Money anywhere in the world.
