The PokerStars North American Poker Tour (NAPT) will air April 19 at 10pm EST on ESPN2. The NAPT is a brand new poker tour sponsored by PokerStars. ESPN2 plans on airing 2 episodes every Monday night for the bext five weeks and then six more episode throughout the summer.
Tonight’s premiere episode of the NAPT will kick off at the Venetian with $5,000 main event which brought 872 players in the field to create a $4 million prize pool. But that’s not all. There was also a $25,000 Invitational High Roller Bounty Shootout to add a little excitement to the episode.
The NAPT episodes are being produced by the same company that creates the WSOP episodes, so expect it to look a little familiar. The hosts will be none other than Lon McEachern and Norman Chad. ThePokerFish will post the episode up tomorrow.
