10 August 2007

LAS VEGAS, Nevada -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Card Player Media and WPT Enterprises (Nasdaq: WPTE) today announced that Card Player Media has been named the official partner of the World Poker Tour® (WPT) for exclusive, live tournament reporting.

As part of the deal, Card Player receives exclusive tournament reporting rights and will join forces with WPT's Live Updates team. Together, WPT and Card Player will provide the industry's most comprehensive tournament coverage available at Worldpokertour.com and Cardplayer.com. The exclusive coverage will include the only full, up-to-the-minute chip counts available and in-depth hand-by-hand coverage of all regular Season VI WPT tournaments. WPT will distribute the summarized information to other media sites via hourly news feeds after the first hour of coverage.

Card Player Media, which has provided extensive poker tournament coverage since 1988, will also continue to offer full multimedia interviews, photos and expert analysis at its website, Cardplayer.com. WPT will also continue to provide player interviews with host Kimberly Lansing, tournament photos, hand analysis, stats, WPT news, and more on the WPT Live Updates site at Worldpokertour.com.

"We are thrilled to be joining forces with the WPT in providing the most complete poker tournament coverage available," stated Barry Shulman, Card Player Media CEO. "With this deal, two of the largest and most respected poker organizations will be working together to expand coverage from the world's biggest tournaments."

"As the WPT continues to grow and reach new territories around the globe, we wanted to further develop our Live Updates online reporting capabilities so we can continue delivering the most robust tournament news and information to our fans," said Steve Lipscomb, WPTE President, Founder and CEO. "An ideal partner, Card Player is a respected, established name with a rich history in the poker industry. We are very excited to launch this strategic agreement with them."
