Small Town Poker, Big Time Press

Stpt

The Small Town Poker Tour (badly needs a new logo, and) has been making a PR push as of late in its search to find the (completely subjective and impossible to prove) best non-poker pro player in the world.

The STPT also allows for philanthropic contributions to local charities of towns they visit.

The show’s executive producer, Mark Fracalossi, plans to expand to Europe too, saying, "There are so many unique sites in Europe we can’t wait to put this on film."

Or put otherwise, there’s a lot of places in Europe he hasn’t been that his friends say are awesome, and he can’t wait to check them out on the company dime.

Not that we wouldn’t do the same.

While we think our friends in LA with 4th Street would make an ideal stop for the STPT (with Richie Rich, Slim, Von Saaaaaaaaandman, and Dino likely duking it out for top player honors), perhaps, just perhaps, Wicked Chops Poker will throw our hat into the ring.

And if we do, totally kidding about the crappy logo and company dime stuff.

    I will put Richie, the Sandman, and Dino up against anyone the STPT can find. If we have to go to Europe to battle so be it.
    And what is up with the STPT site design? Do they want people to take them seriously?

    Tunica is bit far for the 4th St. Crew. We could look into the online challenge, although I still owe the WCP Boys an online match… next year at the WSOP is a long time but I will gladly circle it on the calandar since we’ll all be there anyway.
    Snake… email me and let me know when you’ll be hitting up the Bike and Commerce and make sure to catch up with you and the Addict. And if you’re here over a Thursday you have seats reserved on the Tour.

    I keep getting press releases but everytime I go to their website it looks like utter crap. How can a company do so much PR if they’re going to spoil their rep with the worst online presence possible?
