The World Poker Tour tacked on another event to the already packed schedule for season four of the popular tournament poker show.

The Borgata Poker Classic, which takes place at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City from Jan. 29 to Feb. 1, was added to season four's slate this week. The addition makes season four the most packed yet, with 17 shows.

The 2005 Borgata Poker Open, which took place in September, drew a record 515 players and a $4,995,634 prize pool. It will also be aired during season four.

The WPT also announced that the Gold Strike Casino Resort has become the exclusive site for the WPT's annual stop in Tunica. The resort's World Poker Open is scheduled to take place Jan. 19-23.

The first season of the WPT featured 13 events. Season two grew to 14 and season three to 16 events. With 17 events, there's a chance that the total prize pool for season four will break the $100 million mark.
