The Small Town Poker Tour, a USA television show and the world’s largest amateur poker tour has announced its plans to visit Denmark.
“We will be in Europe the first few weeks of February and plan to spend a significant amount of time in Denmark” stated Mark Fracalossi, the executive producer.
The Tour’s aim is to find the best poker players in the world, planning to scour America’s 50 states, and subsequent tours of Canada, Australia and Asia in the pipeline.
Differing from other poker shows on television it will be taking a more grassroots approach, looking at the lives of people that play poker and along the way raising money for local charities.
“We are happy to be moving forward with setting up a true world amateur poker championship, and giving people a chance to shine. We are also happy to announce that Denmark will be the first stop on the European Small Town Poker Tour,” Fracalossi stated. “We have received many letters of nomination from all of Europe but Denmark responded more than any other country. We are going to be visiting possible venues over the next few weeks.”
Fracalossi further added “The money we raise will stay local. It's a chance for all poker players to come to give something back”.
All regional winners will vie for the title of European Small Town Poker Champion.
You can nominate any city at the Small Town Poker website.
