Monster Headphones has stepped up as the title sponsor for the 2017 World Poker Tour Tournament of Champions and will throw an extra $100,000 into the already rake-free prize pool.
The 2017 WPT Tournament of Champions is set to take place April 7-9, 2017, at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida.
The tournament costs $15,000 to buy into but it’s also only open to past WPT champions. In addition every Season XV winner automatically received entry to the flagship tournament.
Adam Pliska: “Monster Raised the Bar”
This is the second straight year Monster has played a large part in the TOC.
Last year Monster chipped in a brand-new 2016 Chevy Corvette for the winner of the inaugural event. Every player at the six-handed final table also received a pair of Monster Soundstage speakers.
This year each final-contestant will receive a Monster Superstar Ravebox, a portable speaker. In addition first place will once again get a pair of the Rose Gold wireless Monster headphones.
“Monster has been an extraordinary partner of the World Poker Tour for four seasons, and it is our pleasure that the WPT will close out a historic Season XV with the Monster WPT Tournament of Champions,” said WPT CEO Adam Pliska.
“Head Monster Noel Lee and his outstanding team continue to add significant value to the WPT Champions Club, and they have raised the bar once again through the company’s tremendous contribution of $100,000 in cash to the Monster WPT Tournament of Champions prize pool.”
Last year Farid Yachou took down the first-ever TOC for $381,600 outlasting pros such as Michael Mizrachi, Jonathan Jaffe and Noah Schwartz.
