The agenda for the Canadian Poker Tour 2011 has been announced by HeadsUp Entertainment International Inc., which operates the Tour.


*Canadian Players Always Welcome at 888
*USA Players Prohibited at 888 

The event will take place October 1st and 2nd at the Dakota Dunes Casino located just outside of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and nearby the home base of Gambling911.com (Lloydminster). 

The Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority (SIGA) is the operator of six First Nations casinos in Saskatchewan. The casinos are located across the province: Bear Claw Casino (Moose Mountain Provincial Park), Dakota Dunes Casino (Saskatoon), Gold Eagle Casino (North Battleford), Living Sky Casino (Swift Current), Northern Lights Casino (Prince Albert) and Painted Hand Casino (Yorkton).

Satellites for the $500 buy in championship will be taking place at these facilities.

"We are extremely pleased to be working with SIGA," stated CPT President Dan Forigo. "We look forward to building a long and profitable relationship with them and are confident that the events we are working on for 2012 will continue to grow."

The CPT has been working aggressively with casinos in Canada and the U.S. to build new larger land based poker events to capture the demand created by the shut down of a number on online poker sites in the U.S. Canada is an attractive option for U.S. players as there is no withholding tax for winnings and the age to gamble is 18 and 19 in the varying provinces.

It was not immediately known which big name players would be taking part in the event.
