WPTDeepStacks Releases Season 2 Schedule; Calgary to Host Season-Ending Championship

WPTDeepStacks Season 2

After a successful first season under the new World Poker Tour (WPT) and DeepStacks Poker Tour merged brand to create WPTDeepStacks, they have released their schedule for Season 2.

It was already announced last month that DeepStacks would be back to Casino Yellowhead in Edmonton, Alberta for four more events over the next two years, and there were unconfirmed reports that the tour would be back at Grey Eagle Resort & Casino in Calgary as well. The new schedule shows that Calgary will, indeed, see DeepStacks visit the city twice for Season 2. Out of the 15 total events on the schedule, four of them are in Alberta.

Last year was the first time DeepStacks had ever ventured north of the border into our fair land. The inaugural Canadian event was at Grey Eagle Resort & Casino and was won by Jeet Shergill. That was followed by the second-ever Canadian event in Edmonton at Casino Yellowhead, won by Ryan Smith. And, like last year, the Canadian events will remain DeepStack Poker Tour only, not WPTDeepStacks, as per Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC) regulations who has stopped WPT from entering the province in the past.

The last and biggest event of the year — the $2,500 buy-in, $500,000-guaranteed, season-ending WPTDeepStacks Championship — will be held at Grey Eagle Resort & Casino. Curiously, even though it is the WPTDeepStacks Championship, it too will have to shed the WPT affiliation for the event. All Alberta events will still qualify for Player of the Year points.
