College Poker Championship Productions™ is a media and entertainment company engaged in the development, production, and marketing of gaming-themed, televised programming and facilitates the organization of the College Poker Championships™ that determine the best university poker players throughout the United States. CPCP also develops, licenses and sells branded consumer products, corporate sponsorships and provides information, news, trends, updates, non-fiction entertainment (reality based), and educational programming related to the world of College Poker.
While the CPC matures into a national brand and a "big time" poker tour, the founders of the CPCP are constantly working to not only producing a superior TV show, but to provide a great experience for the players and the hosting establishments. Tournament schedules and structures are constantly scrutinized to provide the best possible experience for the tournament players and spectators.
The CPCP prides itself on creating a great atmosphere for making friends and having a good time at all College Poker Championship™ events. What we want is for students to have the experience of playing cards, representing their University, and enjoying a relaxed and fun environment. At the end of every event, our goal is that everyone who played had the time of their life, win or lose.
The College Poker Championships™ sprang from the imagination of long-time friends, college rivals, business associates and poker enthusiasts who were taking an interest in tournament poker and one night were lamenting the fact there were very few tournament opportunities in their area and certainly nothing with a shot at playing on TV. They estimated there were many people who felt as they did and there was a market for a TV show that catered to College poker players to determine the National College Champion. So in February of 2009, the College Poker Championships was born in a Los Angeles production studio. The inaugural Championships will begin in January 2010 with the airing of the first episode of the College Poker Championships on stations later that Spring nationwide. Today, the show airs on over 100 TV stations nationwide and is available in 75 Million U.S. households, with more cable contracts pending.
