Canadian poker players making a deposit up to $50 up until October 8 will be entered into a weekly Canada All-in Shoutout promotion giving them a free entry into a weekly tournament awarding $1,000 with a total of $10,000 to be won during the promotion.
The tournament takes place at 8PM each Thursday and players do not actually have to turn up to play as every player is automatically all-in on every hand.
Players who deposit more than $50 will also gain entry into to a $2,500 added prize pool on Sunday October 12.
There has been much speculation and discussion on poker forums about Canada’s future on PokerStars since a decision last week to pull the PokerStars branding from the Montreal Poker Festival immediately following the company’s acquisition by Canadian Amaya Gaming.
It appears that PokerStars are committed to continuing to serve the Canadian poker market.
