Lacey Jones Joins the CPT

The Canadian Poker Tour just got considerably more attractive.

Professional poker player and presenter Lacey Jones is set to become the new face of the CPT and will be featured prominently on the tour’s new online video network - Canadian Poker Player Television.

"I truly love Canadians and am so happy to be a part of the Canadian Poker Tour", said Jones.

Female participation in the CPT has been on the decline over the last two years and tour-owner HeadsUp Entertainment is hoping that their new host will help bring women back out to the tables.

"Here is a girl that loves hockey, loves Canadian beer and is an amazing poker player to top it off,” said CPT President Kelly Kellner.

"We believe that by having Lacey attend many of our events and the fact that she is about to move to Vancouver, the partnership couldn't be stronger."

Jones will also be featured on the cover of an upcoming issue of Canadian Poker Player Magazine.

Originally hired by a poker company to do modeling work, Jones proved to be more than a pretty face at the poker table and has since made cashes at the WSOP and Borgata Poker Open. Online poker room Absolute Poker took notice and signed her as a full-fledged pro.

Jones' first event as the face of the CPT will be the upcoming Winter Freezeout to be held at Cash Casino in Calgary from Feb. 24-28.
