Grey Eagle Resort & Casino is cementing its name in the record books with the announcement that the 2016 DeepStacks Poker Tour Championship Main Event will now have a $1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool, the largest in Alberta’s history.

Previously, the guarantee was a substantial $500,000, but by doubling it, the casino has moved this event into another stratosphere. “This is an elite championship event and it deserved an elite championship guarantee,” said Lee Athias, Grey Eagle Casino Manager.

“This guarantee proves to poker players across North America that Grey Eagle Resort & Casino is the premier poker room in all of Western Canada.”

The $2,500 buy-in DSPT Main Event runs from November 26 – December 5. Tournament officials anticipate an even larger turnout than last year’s record-breaking DSPT Championship, which saw 567 entries and a $1.27M prize pool, earning a nomination for GPI’s Event of the Year (buy-in up to $2000).

Adding to the championship festivities, Jason Somerville and his massively popular “Run It Up” livestream will be on site the entire week. Somerville will serve as the DSPT Championship ambassador, hosting the livestream broadcast of the final table exclusively on Runitup.tv, conducting special Q&As, meeting with fans, running on-site promotions, hosting two RIU events and doing his daily livestream on Twitch.tv.
