The World Poker Tour has on Wednesday announced the first half of its Season XI schedule, set to be played over the next six months.
The new schedule will see the WPT continue its expansion, adding a number of new stops to both its main and WPT Regional and National programs.
This includes new stops both in the U.S. at the Parx Casino in Pennsylvania, and in Europe in the Danish capital of Copenhagen, among others.
"World Poker Tour is committed to extending its global reach," WPT CEO Steve Heller said according to the WPT website.
"Not only will Season XI feature new stops in the US and abroad, but World Poker Tour is also widely expanding our Regional and National Series to deliver the WPT experience to as many players and fans as possible," he added.
The new stops be accompanied by the long-time classics of the tour, including the WPT Legends of Poker, the Grand Prix de Paris and the Borgata Open.
All in all, the WPT has announced 11 events, set for the remainder of 2012. All events will have buy-ins ranging from $3,500 to $10,300.
First on the schedule will be the $4,400 Cyprus Merit Classic, which will run from August 4 to 9 at the Merit Grand Casino in Cyprus.
The tour will then move on to the inaugural WPT Parx Open Poker Classic from August 10-15, before heading for two European stops in Paris and Malta in September.
September will also see the Borgata Open take place, followed by events in Jacksonville, Copenhagen and Mazagan in November.
Finally, the two last events of 2012 will be the WPT Prague from December 3-9 and the WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic in Las Vegas, from December 17-22.
