The North American Poker Tour (NAPT) was a series of international poker tournaments held in North America. The NAPT included an associated television series broadcasting the final table of some of the tournaments. The televised series aired on ESPN2 in the United States.
The NAPT was created in 2010 by PokerStars. Season 1 consisted of 7 total events. Season 2 saw only 3 events played in early 2011 before competition was suspended. On April 15, 2011, Pokerstars, along with other online poker sites, was shut down by the U.S. government. Consequently, NAPT play was suspended. As of 2013, there has been no update regarding the current status or future of the NAPT.
