The Sky Poker Tour Experience
The Sky Poker Tour sees hundreds of players from around the UK head to some of the finest live venues in the UK, giving players the chance to meet those they've played with on the virtual tables in person.
It's a competitive tour which has seen professional players and amateurs walk away with the spoils. Last year's 2011/12 season saw over £200,000 won in prizes and six SPT champions crowned.
The Sky Poker Tour also gives players the chance to meet the presenters and analysts from Sky Poker TV, with Tony 'Tikay' Kendall, Richard Orford, Sarah Champion, Anna Fowler and the rest of the team often found not too far away...
Most importantly though, the atmosphere at each and every SPT has been incredible. Fun is the name of the game, friendships are made and the whole experience gives players the chance to enjoy their poker in the right way - with a smile on their face.
