The Executive Poker Tour makes its first stop of 2008 this weekend at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City. Four tournaments, plus many satellites into the larger events, are scheduled to take place through the weekend, starting Friday morning.

Although these tournaments generate decent prize pools, a portion of the buy-ins go to the Project Lifesaver Foundation, an organization that outfits elderly and disabled people with an emergency electronic-tracking device.

 The main event is filmed for future broadcast. The schedule of events follows:
