PRWEB) August 9, 2005 -- The Small Town Poker Tour (STPT) is a simple as the title states.

We are overwhelmed and excited about all the people who have contacted us about the tour." The tour has receieved thousands of letters from all over the world from potential players, including many touching stories. "We have read many letters from people who want to help some amazing charities,from the brother who wants to play for a group the helps people with AIDS because many of his family members are affected, to the group that provides toys for children,giving them their only Christmas," Fracalossi added. The STPT has recieved votes for small towns all over the world.

The STPT plans to not only to tour the United States, but European, Asian and Canadian Tours are also in the works. The producers have visited quite a contrast in towns the last few months.
