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.
