Poker Night in America Headed to Big Sky Country
Popular Weekly Television Show on CBS Sports Network Set to Film Poker’s Legendary First Family — the Brunsons
Todd Brunson Hosting “Montana Poker Challenge” at Bigfork, Montana Resort
Big Fork, Montana (September 2, 2014) – Poker Night in America is headed to Montana. The new popular television series which appears twice weekly on CBS Sports Network will soon be filming at a popular luxury lakeside resort located in Bigfork, Montana during the week of September 7-14.
Much of the fun and festivities will revolve around the first family of poker, the Brunsons, who organize the annual event, now in its eighth straight year. Once again, Todd Brunson will host the “Montana Poker Challenge,” which includes several No-Limit Hold’em tournaments, satellites, and cash games. The Main Event which runs September 12-13 costs $333 to enter, but includes re-buy options up to $1,665 for those unlucky players needing the maximum number of rebuys.
“This tournament is all about having fun,” Todd Brunson said. “Most of those who come and play are recreational players. It’s about poker, hanging out with each other, and enjoying what Montana has to offer, which is some of the most beautiful scenery in the country. Everyone who wants to come is invited.”

Anyone over the age of 18 is invited to attend and participate.
Aside from poker, the area offers some of the most majestic scenery in North America. Surrounded by pristine mountains and lakes, the natural beauty of Northwest Montana is breathtaking. Glacier National Park is nearby (a 90-minute drive). The closest airport is located in Kalispell, Montana, which is served by Allegiant Air with direct flights to and from Las Vegas (round trip is less than $200). Plenty of hotels are in the surrounding area.
Poker Night in America’s cameras will be there to capture this special moment in time, with Todd Brunson, Doyle Brunson (a month following his 80th birthday), and Pam Brunson playing starring roles in upcoming episodes which are expected to be broadcast later nationally in 2014 and early 2015. Other poker pros who have confirmed they will attend include Hoyt Corkins, Gavin Smith, Nick Brancato, and others.
Hope to see everyone in Montana!
