Senior Poker Tour Returns to Horseshoe Casino, Tunica to Celebrate One Year Anniversary

Las Vegas, NV (PRUnderground) January 13th, 2015

Senior Poker Tour, after a very successful inaugural year, is headed “Back to the Beginning” for a four day Senior Poker Tour Series at the Horseshoe Casino in Tunica, Mississippi from February 19-22, 2015.

The Horseshoe was host to the kickoff series of the Senior Poker Tour last January, 2014 hosting some 17 events with the main event having a prize pool over $65,000. Since then, the Senior Poker Tour has grown with many tour stops throughout the country including the Venetian Deepstack Series which had a prize pool over $220,000.

“We are so excited to come back to where it all began at the Horseshoe Casino in Tunica. It has been a tremendous year for us and the support of our players has been phenomenal. Coming back and seeing our players that launched the Senior Poker Tour will be heartwarming as we celebrate our first year. The senior poker community has been welcoming us with open arms wherever we go, says, Hal Coblentz, SPT Vice President. “Coming back to Tunica will be a celebration of seeing old friends and making new ones.” Said Lupe Soto, SPT CEO.  “We continue to grow and partner with casinos of all sizes to highlight this “over 50” segment of the poker world. We have much planned for 2015 including a Senior Poker Tour World Championship held at sea with Card Player Cruises, and Senior’s Poker Week™ that will coincide with the World Series of Poker.”

“Also on the schedule are several new tour stops that will bring our brand into many new markets this coming year. We encourage people to keep checking our website and social media for events in their city” added Hal Coblentz.

About Senior Poker Tour

Senior Poker Tour is the hottest new poker tour to hit the industry! With the increase in population of poker players over 50 in the industry, it only makes sense to feature this segment of the poker world. Only in poker can you find a 90 year old player competing next to another player who has just become legal to be in a card room. However, there is overwhelming evidence with the popularity of the World Series of Poker’s Senior Championship event is that seniors want to play in a field of their peers. SPT™ provides a venue to feature senior players with a traveling series filled with a wide variety of games that many grew up on. Our series not only includes Texas Holdem, but includes mixed games of Omaha 8, Stud 8, Horse, and Pot Limit Omaha.

Endorsed by some of poker’s greats, we have assembled a wonderful group of Professional Poker Players to join Team SPT™. We are joined by Dennis Phillips, Linda Johnson, Mark Kroon, Jan Fisher, Susie Isaacs, Marsha Waggoner, Donna Blevins, Nancy Todd and Robert “Chip Burner” Turner. We look forward to their presence at several tour locations around the country.
