Viva Las Vegas! – NAPT Makes Triumphant Return

After a 10+ year hiatus, the PokerStars North American Poker Tour is BACK, and we here at The Hendon Mob could not be more excited about the return of the NAPT!

Resorts World is set to play host to NAPT Las Vegas, which launches this weekend on the Las Vegas Strip. Over 30 events are scheduled starting this weekend, from November 4th to the 12th.

There are wide-ranging event buy-ins for all players, from the weekend grinder to the most seasoned pros…


The NAPT Main Event kicks off on Monday, November 6th. The $1,650 buy-in Main Event offers six starting flights with final day action set for Saturday, November 11th.

Poker players will also have plenty of opportunities to qualify for the Main at a reduced rate as eight Main Event Satellites are on the schedule.

Players will be chasing Vanessa Selbst on the All-Time NAPT Main Event victories next week. Selbst remarkably won back-to-back NAPT Main Event at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut in 2010 and 2011 – this November’s NAPT Las Vegas Champ will hope to follow in the former GPI #1’s footsteps next year.
