World Poker Tour season 18 results

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Below are the results of season 18 of the World Poker Tour (2019–21). There were 29 scheduled events.[1]

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, several events on the schedule were postponed. In addition, three final tables that were supposed to take place at the HyperX Esports Arena at the Luxor Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas were also delayed.[2]

In January 2021, the WPT returned with the WPT Lucky Hearts Poker Open, the first live event since March 2020.[3] The three final tables that were delayed were played in either March or May, more than a year after the lineup was set.[4]

The Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown, the final event on the schedule, set a new record for the largest WPT event with 2,482 entrants.[5]
