For poker players in Canada who aren’t interested (or unable) to go abroad to enjoy their favourite pastime, the Canadian Poker Tour could be the answer to your desire to play in a live poker tournament. Poker is as much a part of Canada as anywhere else, and there’s no need to take your skill abroad if you don’t want to. Take part in the Canadian poker scene with fellow poker players interested in competing in a friendly tournament.
In order to participate, interested players need only become a Canadian Poker Tour member by paying a small fee and then getting down to the business of collecting enough points by competing well in local poker events in order to qualify for the national championship tournament and to be put in the running for winning an array of prizes.
The top one hundred players with the most points will go on to compete against one another, with the winner being crowned Captain and given a sponsorship contract that will allow him or her to travel all across Canada for free in order to play poker. This is a dream come true for many Canadian poker fans who would love the chance to be a sponsored poker player but don’t want to be too far from home.
