The Fallsview Poker Classic is the largest poker tournament in Canada and is held at the Fallsview Casino Resort in Niagara Falls, Ontario. The tournament draws poker players from all over Canada, and the Casino is filled with poker celebrities and players from all over the world vying for their share of the $2.5 Million prize pool!
This is what it’s all about for our poker customers; its gut-check time” said Greg Medulun, spokesman for Fallsview Casino Resort. It’s one thing to come in to our poker rooms and play a few hands or sit at home and dabble online, but to win a satellite or pay your own way to play with the other serious competitors… it’s going to be an intense five days in February.
There will be three main events that make up the “Fallsview Poker Classic”. All three events will be broken two “Day 1s” using a similar format to the WSOP in order to accommodate the huge fields that show up.
