“Assiniboia Downs regrets having to announce that it is discontinuing poker. Therefore, poker will not restart this Friday as originally planned.  We are currently working with the LGCA to determine how to disburse the current Jackpot and will advise in short order. Assiniboia Downs would like to thank Kerran and Rosie (All In Poker) for their outstanding support over the last 10 years and for hosting these tournaments. It was greatly and sincerely appreciated and we know it was definitely challenging at times! We would also like to thank all of the players who participated in the poker games throughout the years.”
