2014 WPT Fallsview Poker Classic at Fallsview Casino Resort in Niagara Falls

World-Poker-Tour-FallsviewThe 2014 Fallsview Poker Classic has been announced for Feb. 18-24, 2014 and with it will be the long awaited comeback of the World Poker Tour in Niagara Falls, Ontario, once home to WPT North American Poker Championship, the largest single event tournament prize pool on Canadian soil with over $4,374,475, with the elite of the poker world in attendance.

A total of 3 major tournaments will be showcased with buy-ins of $1,100, $2,500 and the $5,000 main event. This year’s Fallsview Poker Classic garnered an impressive total prize pool of $2.27 million across the 3 events. But 2014 should see that amount shattered.

With the success of the WPT Montreal boasting a combined prize pool of over $2.7 million in the main event alone, the WPT-powered Fallsview Poker Classic backed by online satellites exclusively on partypoker.net, we can expect the bar to be raised yet again in Canada.

The non-televised Main Event caps a week-long, three-event series beginning February 18 that includes a $1,100 and a $2,500 tournament. Players may buy directly into each event or qualify through satellites, starting as early as Monday, December 9, and super satellites starting in February.
