“All In Event Management” was born out of a pocket pair of ACES. In 1999 the company’s founder decided to invite 20 of his friends over for a “Las Vegas” style poker tournament. A poker table was rented, and a second fashioned from a dinning room table. The evening went well, and the host found himself heads up at the final table. Pocket Aces held up and his first ever tournament was arranged, hosted, and won!!

Over the next few months the crowd who had enjoyed the event hungered for more and larger tournaments were created. They had to be moved out of the house and into venues that could house more than just 2 tables. An investment was made that would change the future for good. Several tables were made so that rentals were no longer necessary, and pretty soon people started inquiring about having tables brought to their own poker parties.

  In 2001 the company’s founder had generated enough interest and event bookings that he created “Holdem for Hire”. Business generation grew to the point where major events were undertaken sending winners to the coveted “World Series of Poker” to play. Some celebrity contacts were even made that aligned “Holdem for Hire” with several NHL players for their fundraising efforts. These endeavors took “Holdem for Hire” all over southern Ontario, as well as destinations as far as Prince Edward Island, and Barbados to run charity style fundraisers with the world’s newest most captivating sport. (Poker).
