Next Level Poker Resurrects iNinja Poker Tour
Chris “Fox” Wallace and Brian Soja of Next Level Poker Tours, LLC announce that they have acquired the iNinja Poker Tour brand. Next Level’s reboot will start with the launch of the “iNinja Resurrection” tour, which will bring back the popular iNinja Poker Tour brand with a new line up of card rooms and two completely new and unique tournament formats.
The new tournament series will focus on bringing in new players and creating fun environment for amateur players. Utilizing its highly successful format of low buy-in, multiple starting day events the tour will continue to create big prize pools with huge fields. The Resurrection Tour will also feature entirely new ninja-themed tournaments including “The Resurrection” event.
Why resurrect iNinja? Wallace explained, “People loved playing them! iNinja broke attendance records in Iowa and Minnesota, and never missed a guarantee. It’s a light-hearted, tongue-in-cheek theme; everybody likes ninjas and all players want to be assassins at the table.” The tour skyrocketed from nothing to a force to be reckoned with in the Midwest, awarding over two million dollars in its first two years and drawing record fields at a number of venues.
Wallace started Next Level Poker after being a poker pro for fifteen years. “I wanted to start a tour that has integrity and transparency. Something that would make casinos, sponsors, and players happy. We work with the card rooms to hit their individual goals and offer them options that fit their market.” Events are already in the planning stages and should be announced in the coming months.
Former tour owner Issac Tucker is no longer associated with the tour, but supports the efforts that Wallace and Soja are making to bring the tour back to life. Wallace notes, “The excitement generated by iNinja was incredible. I have never seen a tour grow so quickly and I have never seen people have so much fun in a poker tournament. When Issac approached us about taking over the tour it was clear that he wanted it to go to a group of people who could bring it back in a big way and we are going to work hard to make that happen. We look forward to awarding millions more to poker players around the world and bringing some of the fun back to poker rooms at a lower price point than many of our competitors.”

Help us name our new team tourney! A hybrid style event where 1-3 person teams compete to knock out the most people. Most of the prize 💰 goes to the teams with highest combined KOs, and the rest to individuals in a traditional payout.
@iNinjaPoker Probably because it was a recognized brand and one the people enjoyed at one point. Plus design, trademark etc costs money. From what I have been reading I have no doubt they'll get it back to its former glory.OrleansPokerRoom@OrleansPokerRo1
