GIBRALTAR – River Belle, one of the most recognized and trusted online entertainment brands in the world, announced today that it has partnered with Poker Night Live Canada to bring exciting poker activities to poker enthusiasts in Canada. The program will be broadcast daily by CGTV, a Canadian cable channel specializing in gaming entertainment, on Rogers Digital Cable channel 228. During Thursday and Saturday broadcasts, players will compete on the River Belle branded playing felt.

Riding on the success of the UK version, Poker Night Live will televise a virtual poker table with participating online players. Commentary will be provided by two avid poker players with tournament experience. The broadcast allows viewers the opportunity to watch how online poker is played while practicing their skills. Additionally, Canadian poker players now have a live platform to exhibit their poker talent through Poker Night Live Canada and River Belle - the "TV Tables" can be accessed through the River Belle Online Poker software, which is available to download at RiverBelle.com.

River Belle recently launched a new and innovative online poker room complete with Texas Hold'em, Omaha Hi/Low, 5-Card Stud and 7-Card Stud, all available with a wide range of table limits. River Belle Online Poker provides players the unique opportunity to create their own private tables and replicate weekly poker nights with good friends at any time. Features also allow players to pre-select their seats, locate a specific player, or search for their favorite table. More advanced players can play at ten tables at once while watching each game via the "Mini View" feature. River Belle Online Poker also offers free poker school for learning the skills and rules of each game.

"Poker Night Live will give online players the rare opportunity to showcase their poker skills on live television," said Tim Johnson, Chairman of Carmen Media Group, owners of Belle Rock Entertainment.
