MONTREAL--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Poker Pro Media is kicking off festivities for the launch of its newest magazine title, Poker Pro Canada, with a huge tournament in Montreal – The Four Aces/Poker Pro Canada Classic.
The event is scheduled for the Four Aces poker club April 15-18. The no-limit hold’em freezeout will feature a $1,500+$150 buy-in and deep stacks. Play starts at 1 p.m.
There will be three “Day Ones,” with players eliminated on Day 1a allowed to buy back in on Day 1b, and again on Day 1c if you are rich, in a gambling mood, or a donkey.
Survivors of the three “first days” will do battle on Sunday, April 18, for the title and the lucrative prize money. Organizers are anticipating hundreds of players and a prize pool that could reach half a million dollars.
Montreal is one of the hottest international cities in the world, with some great nightlife, so if you are not from the Quebec area, it is definitely worth the trip.
Internet poker rooms UB and Bodog have been running online satellites to the Classic, as has Four Aces. The famous Bodog girls are also expected.
“This is the first new poker publication that has been launched in years, and we want to kick off Poker Pro Canada with a bang, and this big event is one way we are doing that,” said Poker Pro Canada Editor-in-Chief John “Johnny Quads” Wenzel, who is overseeing the launch and the new title. “I will be competing in this event, so you know there will be some ‘dead money’ there. Come and get it.”
