WPT Canada To Get Inaugural Airing

Monday, 1 September 2008

The first of the four hour-long episodes will debut in the first week of September across Sportsnet East, Sportsnet Ontario, Sportsnet West and Sportsnet Pacific.

Acclaimed Canadian sports announcer, Jim Van Horne, will host the shows alongside poker professional 'Cowboy' Kenna James.

The WPT Canada series will highlight high stakes action from the Coast to Coast Championships, a nine-day tournament combining seven different poker games held at The River Rock Casino in Vancouver.

Almost 2,000 players and pros travelled from around Canada and North America to play for their share of the $1.6 million prize pool, a WPT Canada title and a chance at poker stardom.
