The World Poker Tour, which became famous during the post-Moneymaker poker boom by featuring the likes of top poker pros like Gus Hansen, Phil Ivey, Daniel Negreanu, Howard Lederer and J.C. Tran, has been sold for $9.075 million to Gamynia Ltd. Gamynia is promising to continue operations of the World Poker Tour and the Professional Poker Tour, while WPT Enterprises Inc. (a publicly listed company) will use the money to acquire an unspecified “non-poker related business.” I’m sure the WPT shareholders are thrilled by that news.
