The channel will broadcast live feeds from some of the biggest Canadian poker tournaments as well as a number of ring games that well be played within Canada. The channel will work alongside the Canadian poker room to cover a number of big money tournaments and their action as players look to beat out the field and claim first prize, airing the action after the tournament has been completed.
HeadsUp Entertainment Limited have told how the site will look to track and seek out poker tournaments that are happening within Canada and then will be aired onto their site in order for their viewers to be able to see.
Excitement is starting to snowball within the Canadian borders due to the Canadian Open Poker Championships that will bring in some of the biggest named poker stars in the industry and all the action will be available for viewing right on CanadianPokerPlayer.TV.
Players who are expected to be seen in action on the new channel once it releases include Antonio Esfandiari, Phil Laak, Joe Hachem and Huck Seed.
