Nagaworld resorts and WPT are increasing presence in Cambodia by launching local WPT series.
Western companies have been struggling to break into the Cambodia poker scene. Difficult gambling laws, language barriers and lack of brick-and-mortar poker clubs have made it difficult to launch big offline tournament series in the past.
WPT and Nagaworld partnership makes sense, Nagaworld is the biggest casino resort in Cambodia and they have world-class facilities to host a large poker tournament.

Nagaworld casino will host 17 tournaments between Nov 16-25. The main event is $1100 buy-in, $250k GTD held Nov 21-25. The series will also include a $5300 high-roller event. There will be a wide selection of tournaments like short-deck poker, Bounty hunter and several Pot-limit Omaha events. Full schedule below:
