The North American Poker Tour (NAPT) is set to become the next major tour to grace television land. Why do we need yet another poker tour on TV? Because the NAPT keeps out the riffraff by limiting entry to the top players in the world; they ensure that the tournaments are true tests of skill; and because they have brought tournament impresario Matt Savage on board. Savage, for those of you who are as of yet uninitiated, is the number one televised tournament director in the world.
According to NAPT President and COO, Joseph Wade Mézey, the tour has been modelled after the PGA Tour. “Only professional players are invited to play on the North American Poker Tour. We want to move away from the idea that anyone can win. And we want to stay away from the large fields.”
