Final Days for Heartland Poker Tour Hostess Contest

by , Apr 27, 2010 | 4:00 pm

As you may or may not know, our good friends at Wicked Chops and the Heartland Poker Tour have partnered up to find a new TV-hostess for the HPT. Cool American Idol meets Celebrity Apprentice on Facebook-like competition for poker-savvy women who want to look pretty and smart-ish while talking about bustouts.

We were gonna nominate the uber-young Katie for the position — seems like an adorble pre-teen who knows about bad beats and pot odds might be perfect for what the wholesome-Americana-poker Heartland is all about. However, upon learning from WCP that the notorious Ass Girl is a top contender for the job, we’re not so sure any more that this is the place for a child who hasn’t yet learned how to use breasts to her professional advantage.

(Zip it, you sick Wicked Chops readers pervs.)

Anyhow, they’ve got just a few days to go before nominations in this open casting call are closed. From there three finalists will fly to the HPT event at Turning Stone in New York for a May 14 pageant-off.

CPC on PPV, an audience of 3?

The Continental Poker Championship has scheduled their first PPV event (with Pokerati’s own Tom Schneider on commentary) at the Turning Stone Casino in Verona, New York on Monday. Their first tournament, also at Turning Stone, drew 117 for a $2,000 buyin event back in July. Organizers were surely expecting similar numbers for their $1,500 3-day tournament, which started Saturday. Unfortunately, it looks like those final table participants may be waiting around for a while. According to a poster on 2+2 (post #666), they drew about 64. At 4:30 ET today, a player was eliminated in 30th. No word of if the final table is still to take place on Monday, but watch this space for any further updates if they become available.

Update: Play ended for the day around 8pm ET with 17 players left.

The final table starts at about noon ET today, Pokerpages will be providing live updates here.
