The World Poker Tour ignited the global poker boom with the creation of this unique television show based on a series of high-stakes tournaments, and has broadcast globally in over 150 countries and territories. Televised WPT events turned Gus Hansen into the Great Dane and Daniel Negreanu into Kid Poker, and created dozens of poker-made millionaires.
