For a third consecutive season, WPT National Korea will be hosted at the Paradise Grand Jeju Casino in Maison Glad Hotel Jeju, and will be organized jointly by Poker King Club and J&P Entertainment. Autumn is said to be the best time of the year to visit the fascinating melting pot of Korean culture in Jeju, which bursts into full color during the season, boasting of cobalt blue skies and spectacular golden hued foliage. The upcoming WPT National Korea will continue its emphasis on the overall stay and event experience of the players while in Jeju, putting priority on their comfort, immersion to the local culture, and tourism, rather than focusing solely on the games. WPT National Korea is once again partnering with local Korean brands to offer a variety of sponsored goods and notable discounts for the benefit of both the local businesses and the tournament players. During the last festival, players who won the events were delighted to find high-end sunglasses from the Korean eyewear shop, Vivant, among their many prizes.
