Heartland Poker Tour
Season 1 Underway
8/15/05 | The Heartland Poker Tour is scheduled to broadcast
its first season beginning October 1st. The tour
will air an hour-long show on cable networks Fox
Sports Net-North & Comcast, as well as
several local television stations in the region. Having experienced their production first hand, I can
tell you the show is well produced and should be a big hit. Recently I made the final table for the first show and took 5th place. The tournament was held at Jackpot
Junction in Morton, MN. Dakota Poker League is working with the Heartland Poker Tour founders, Greg Lang & Todd Anderson (Fargo) to
sponsor satellite tournaments for members of Dakota & Minnesota
Poker Leagues. For details and a complete list of events, visit the Heartland Poker Tour website.
