The 2012 Alberta Poker Championship marks the 9th time the tournament series will be hosted at Casino Edmonton, in Alberta, Canada. This year’s Championship series will be made up of 4 tournaments and two “Super-Satellites” that will take place January 15th-22nd.
The Alberta Poker Championships have grown almost double in size from last year. You can see this reflected in the size of buy-in and the expected prize pool, which draws even more players. An interesting note is that Casino Edmonton will award a gold bracelet to the winners of the $500 NLH and $2000 NLH Main Event tournaments.
The tournament schedule is a little confusing, the $500 NLH tournament will be split into two “Day 1′s” which will take place on January 19th and 20th. The $500 NLH tournament will then be put on hold and the $2000 Main Event will commence on January 21, the $500 NLH tournament will then resume on January 22.
