HPT Joins Forces With DAV
February 5, 2022

The Heartland Poker Tour (, a tour created for the “regular,” slightly less economically advanced poker enthusiast, has officially announced they will be teaming up with the Disabled American Veterans for “Heartland Heroes,” a new program dedicated to helping American service people who have sacrificed so much to defend this country. 

With this announcement, the Heartland Poker Tour has pledged to donate 1% of their entire 2009 tournament prize pool (where allowed by applicable gaming laws) to the Disabled American Veterans, while also raising awareness of the organization through advertising, fund raisers, and public service announcements that will air on the HPT TV network - a network that reaches more than 80 million American homes. 

"It has been a longstanding goal of the Heartland Poker Tour to help our nation's vets. Nearly all of us at Heartland Poker Tour live with military service in our family culture," said HPT Co-Founder Todd Anderson.

The first Heartland Poker Tour stop of 2009 has already begun at the Downstream Casino Resort, in Quapaw, OK, where qualifiers are currently running daily for a $1,000 buy-in Main Event, scheduled for February 8th.
