The 2013 PEI Poker Challenge took the center stage this weekend to a sold out crowd at the Red Shores Racetrack & Casino in Charlottetown, PEI. Players came from PEI and neighbouring New Brunswick and Nova Scotia to play in this $300 Open Limit Texas-Hold’em Event, which generated a $72,000 prize pool.
