The World Poker Tour season 10 may still be going on, but that doesn’t mean that it’s too early to start planning for Season 11.  The company has some big plans for the season, and CEO Steve Heller has said that the tour “is committed to extending its global reach”.

For Season 11, the tour will feature several new stops in the USA, and also several new stops in foreign countries.  The tour hopes to expand its Regional and National Series to ensure that as many players and fans as possible can enjoy the competition.

So far, eleven stops for the World Poker Tour Season 11 have been announced, and there are still more to come.  The main event buy-ins will start at $3,500 with the biggest events clocking in at $10,300.  This year’s calendar will see a two month pause during the summer while the World Series of Poker holds the attention of most poker players, before the action kicks off again on August 4th with the beginning of the new season.

The first event on the calendar is the WPT Merit Cypris Classic, with the WPT Parx Open Poker Classic taking place just a day later in Pennsylvania.  The Cyprus main event will not be televised, but the Pennsylvania event main event will be shown on TV as of the final table.

After that, other stops include California, France, New Jersey, Denmark, Morocco, the Czech Republic, and Las Vegas.  The rest of the schedule is yet to be confirmed.
