The World Poker Tour (WPT) plans to broadcast live streams for 14 days next month during the WPT World Championship Series, including one of the most historic poker tournaments of all time.
The action begins November 29th and runs through December 23rd at Wynn Las Vegas, one of the best poker spots on the Strip. During what is set to be a huge series for the second year in a row, there will be a $40 million guaranteed championship event (December 12-21), the largest guaranteed prize pool in poker history.
Not only will it set a guaranteed prize money record, but it will at least become the third largest live tournament outside of the World Series of Poker (WSOP) of all time. But it’s far from the only major event on the upcoming schedule (full schedule below).

WPT World Championship Streaming Details
If you were wondering whether the Wynn tournaments will be visible to fans next month, the answer for many of them is yes. The WPT will stream on WPT.com starting December 7th with a prize pool of $25/$50 Creator Cash Game with legendary poker vloggers Brad Owen And Andrew Capeboth ambassadors for the World Poker Tour.
Tournament streaming begins the next day with the $1,100 Ladies Championship final table. Cash game action returns from December 9th to 11th – a high-stakes no-limit hold’em game on the first two days, followed by a day of pot-limit Omaha action. There are three more cash game streams planned, including the Million Dollar Cash Game on December 15th.
Speaking of million dollar games, the Big One for One Drop is back, but this time as part of the World Poker Tour series at Wynn. And yes, the final table on December 20th will be broadcast live for your viewing pleasure. Superstars like Phil Ivey have already committed to the $1 million buy-in event.
