“Our fans have been very patient waiting for the Season XVIII episodes and we are excited for Sunday night,” said WPT CEO Adam Pliska in a press release. “The action from Season XVIII promises to live up to the expectations of our audience.”

The first three episodes of the new season will cover the WPT Gardens Poker Championship, which was one of three final tables that were set in 2020 and then ultimately delayed over a year as a result of the live poker shutdown during caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The events, which also included the WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open and the WPT L.A. Poker Classic, all played down to a champion in the spring of 2021. Those three events and the 2021 WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown will be the first four events covered in the upcoming TV broadcasts.
