Looking back on 2016 as it comes to a close, we’re featuring our top 10 articles from the year to show the highlights of poker in Canada in 2016. These are decided on the very simple measurement of which articles were read the most.
The sixth-most read article of the year was the announcement that Jason Somerville would be coming to Calgary for DeepStacks Poker Tour Championship with plans to stream part of the event on his popular Run It Up channel.

Having the Twitch star Jason Somerville on site to cast his spotlight on the tour brought his global audience’s attention to Calgary.
