    Introducing Alpha8: A Worldwide invitational $100k+ buyin tournament series to be tel

    The World Poker Tour has announced the All New WPT Alpha8, a new series of invite-only, high-buyin tournaments that will be televised on Fox Sports.

    The exclusive series will stop at some of the world?s most prestigious venues, according to the press release, covering North America, Europe, Asia, and South Africa.

    Four hours of coverage for each event will air on FS1, as part of a three year deal between the WPT and Fox. PokerNews? Lynn Gilmartin will anchor the show. WPT tournament director Matt Savage will officiate the tournaments.

    The first event will be in just over a month?s time, as part of the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open in Florida. The show will air on Fox in 2014, though there will be live streams of the final table available on WPT.com.

    The televised action on Fox will be sponsored by ClubWPT, the group?s free-play poker site. Ironically, ClubWPT withdrew from the Florida market earlier this year following the passage of a bill which banned internet cafes, but had language broad enough to include online sweepstakes sites.

    Given its name, presumably there will be eight stops a season, though details on the future events have not yet been released.

    This is awesome. I love these super high roller events because they pit the best against the best.
