Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The World Poker Tour covers a series of "elimination" poker tournaments in the top casinos throughout the world. Individual episodes boasted such colorful titles as "Bellagio Five Diamond," "Bicycle Casino," and "Ultimate Bet." The concluding program was a winner-take-all competition at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino, with each of the surviving contestants required to pony up 25,000 dollars to play against the previous year's tour winners. World Poker Tour made its Travel Channel bow on March 30, 2003.
