“SPT is growing very quickly and we’re aligning with other poker tours who share our vision. We’re proud to announce a partnership with PPC Poker Tour with our first event at Tampa Bay Downs on March 11 at 1 p.m. where qualifiers will win a seat to the PPC Aruba senior event in October,” said SPT CEO Lupe Soto.
