Small Town Poker Tour offers charity bonus to players

The Small Town Poker Tour (STPT) announced today it will make a special $25 donation to a player's charity of choice when they register and make a cash deposit at Noble Poker. To sign-up, players can go to, click on the "Register to Play" link and follow the instructions.

"The STPT is all about giving back and what a better way to give back than to donate directly to the player's charity," said Mark Fracalossi, STPT executive producer. "Poker has proven to be a great charity vessel and we are just taking it to the next level."

In addition to the bonus, the STPT will run weekly events at Noble Poker geared toward the amateur poker player. This falls right in line with the STPT's efforts to focus on the world's amateur players as well as helping the towns they visit on the tour.

"Our show is unique. The finals will be in a casino, but the rest of the show is a tour of the world," Fracalossi said. "Our goal is to make this a fundraising machine for the towns we visit."

Hailed as the world's largest amateur poker series, the STPT has launched a global search for the world's best amateur poker player, and will focus each production on the "small town flavor" of the host country.

No-Limit Texas Hold'em tournament finals are being played out in casinos while the remainder of the tour consists of back road poker playing. All money raised by the tour will be donated to local charities.

At the end of the series, all regional winners will come together to compete in the STPT World Amateur Finals for the grand prize and the title of the Small Town Poker Champion.

Upcoming events include the STPT Baltic Championships, with stops in Denmark, Sweden and Estonia, as well as a series of Texas Hold'em tournaments at Indian casinos across the United States with proceeds benefiting the North American Indigenous Games.
