Calgary, Alberta – the city with more poker rooms per capita than anywhere else in Canada – finally has a marquee event of its own. DeepStacks Poker Tour (DSPT) has just announced that they will be coming to town for a nine-day series at Grey Eagle Casino from September 20th to 28th, 2014.
DSPT is a Los Angeles-based company that organizes poker tournaments with large fields and huge prize pools that attract mainstream players and give them the experience of an internationally-recognized poker series. They aim to create player-friendly events attended by poker pros and broadcast via live stream and on television.
This first Canadian event for DSPT includes a $1,100 Main Event with two starting days, and boasts a $100,000 Guarantee. The winner of DSPT Calgary will also win a seat in the 2014 DSPT World Championship later in the year.
DSPT has also announced that professional poker players Mike “The Mouth” Matusow, Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi, and Tristan “Cre8ive” Wade have made commitments to attend the event.
