Calgary's Deerfoot Casino "Summer Super Stack" Adds Canadian Heads Up Championship
Calgarian poker players remained resilient despite the massive cleanup earlier this month when the Stampede Showdown Tournament attracted a healthy field and a prize pool of $124,000.

The 11 day festival is one of western Canada's larger tournament series of the summer. The events feature, obviously, deep stacks, including a $30,000 chip stack for the main event along with large guaranteed prize pools and a "Canadian championship" of heads-up poker.
With 8 total tournaments including several multi-day events, expect juicy side game action to develop in the Deerfoot poker room. If that doesn't work out, you can try their "Party Pit" blackjack and roulette tables for some distracting dancing!
