The Hit and Run: WPT vs. WSOP; Ivey Hunting Game in Asia

Dustin Gouker : April 8th, 2015


The World Poker Tour and the World Series of Poker go heads-up. And where is Phil Ivey trying to find a poker game? It’s all in our daily wrap-up of the world of poker, the Hit and Run.


For the second straight year, the World Poker Tour is putting on a tournament in Las Vegas during the World Series of Poker. Again, it doesn’t seem like it has any intent of taking players away from the WSOP, instead trying to give players a chance to play in a tournament when they might not be playing at the Rio. This time, the prize pool for the $565 buy-in tournament has been doubled to $2 million. More details here.
