Canada Poker Tournament League

    MONTREAL, Aug. 12 /CNW Telbec/ - The Canada Poker Tournament League is
starting off in the Maritime Provinces on the first of October 2009 and will
be offering for their next season $500,000 in cash and prizes such as trips to
the WSOP in Las Vegas.
    Launched in the province of Quebec in October 2007, the Quebec Poker
Tournament League (QCPTL - enjoys tremendous success with
already more than 250 venues and now more than 25 000 members.
    Committed to make you live the same infatuation in all Canadian
Provinces, Gestion Poker Tour will launch, in October, a legal and completely
free competitive poker circuit in each of the Maritime Provinces.
    Already, many venues are currently in operation in the towns of Caraquet,
Kedgwick, Tracadie-Sheila, St-Léonard and very soon, Edmundston.
    We are pleased to invite the Medias to the official launch tour of the
provincial leagues in the MARITIMES which will be part of the CANADA Poker
Tournament League (CNPTL).

    For the Venues, the information sessions will be held at 10.30am

    For the Amateurs, the information sessions will be held at 1.00pm

    For the launch, Pierre Martel, France Lajoie and André Boyer, holder of a
prestigious WSOP bracelet, offer you the opportunity to come and meet them.
They will be more than happy to answer any questions.
    Amongst the people present including the Medias at the afternoon, ten
