SANTA MONICA, CA--(Marketwired - July 22, 2014) - Twistory Entertainment Studios announced today a joint partnership with World Poker Tour® (WPT®), the leader in internationally televised poker tournaments. Twistory Entertainment Studios merges the art of story telling with technology by producing a series of original television segments of Belle's War that will be incorporated into upcoming episodes of the World Poker Tour.

In each segment, Belle, played by Danielle Vasinova, will square off live against two poker players from the WPT in heads-up matches of her iconic game Belle's War, currently available on all mobile platforms. Belle's War players who finish among the top 13 on the mobile game's leaderboard will be eligible to appear as a contestant in a WPT segment featuring Belle.
