    YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOUR MISSING IN PEI!

    THEY SHOULD HAVE TOURNAMENTS.
    FRIENDLY PROFESSIONAL STAFF.
    WELL ORGANIZED AND TOTAL FUN.THE DEALERS ARE THE BEST IN CANADA AND THE LOCATION IS SECOND TO NONE.

    THE FINAL TABLE WAS FULL OF TALENTED MARITIME POKER STARS. DALE BABINEAU WON BUT ANY ONE OF THE FINALIST WOULD HAVE BEEN A WORTHY CHAMPION.
