Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) December 5, 2005
The Small Town Poker Tour (STPT) is a unique new poker show to hit the air soon. The STPT is traveling the highways and byways of world setting up Texas Hold'em games in some of the worlds most unique locations searching for the best non pro poker player in the world. Along the way Mark Fracalossi Executive Producer of the show has received many poker stories and been invited to many home games around the world. " I want to capture something that is missing in the shows today, the player interaction you only find in a home game or small town," Mark stated.
"Now you have your chance to be heard," Mark stated. "We always have people coming up and tell us bad beat stories, how poker has changed my life, and how long I have been playing poker and you have to see our home game. This unique bond all players have, provided unique tales for the show. We still receive many everyday, and have decided some will be featured on the show. So if you have a poker story that you feel should be told or a great home game we should attend, go to http://www.smalltownpokertour.com and send it us," Fracalossi stated. "Poker has always been a grass roots game and our goal is to bring that feel to life, not the circus atmosphere on television today but the real feel of poker," he added.
The Small Town Poker Tour will not only search the USA, but also plans tours of Australia,Canada, Europe and Asia. The STPT will also lend it's hand in many high profile charity events. Friday November 11, the STPT helped sponsor an event at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, "Vince Neils Off the Strip Tournament. There will be a huge prize pool, plus $150,000 was raised for the Skylar Neil Foundation and the T. J. Martell Foundation, a music industry organization dedicated to the innovative life saving research into the treatment of leukemia, cancer and AIDS.
"We were happy to lend our hand to such a great cause", stated Mark. "We have a huge data base of players who are always willing to help a good cause," Mark added.
The tour will add a grassroots look to the worlds fastest grown card game Texas Hold 'em.
The STPT is as simple as the title states, blending everyday people with the exciting game of Texas Hold'em and donate money to charity. "The money we raise will stay local, it's a chance for all poker players to come and give something back, and a chance to be the STPT Champion," Fracalossi stated.
The tour will be not of the flashy set productions you see on television. "Our show and tour is unique. The finals will be in a casino, but the rest of the show is a tour of the world," Fracalossi stated.
"Our goal is to make this a fund raising machine for the towns we visit",Fracalossi said. You can find out more about the tour at http://www.smalltownpokertour.com
