Labatt Blue Chip Tournament
- visit your local bar to obtain labatt blue poker chips. Winners of each local event will play in the regional events. Info on the site is pretty vague, better just to visit a participating bar, down a blue, get a chip or 2, and show up that date.

I've noticed Paradise has a weekly Saturday WPT Choice tourney with a buy-in of 5000 PPC. Not too many people seem to know about this. Last week there was about 60 people, today there is about 60 with half an hour to go. Could be a good opportunity to win a seat if you want to spend those otherwise useless PPC points.
