For the sixth year in a row, Axis is proud to organize the 2009 edition of the Coors Light Taxis Hold’em presented by Oakley, this Friday, 4pm EST at Mont Saint-Sauveur, Quebec. So if you live in the Quebec or New England area, be sure to check it out in person, but if you don't, no worries, because we wanted to let all of you know that we'll be broadcasting it live right here on Newschoolers!

That's right, what better way to spend a Friday afternoon/evening before going out partying with your friends or resting up for skiing the next day then watching a kick-ass event right here on NS? The broadcast itself begins at 7pm EST, and to check it out and chat with fellow NS'ers while it's all going down, click here.

The format for the event is extremely original. The comeptitors will meet around a poker table and bet Axis dollars on their best trick. To win this event, participants have to bet their way through each round to get all of the Axis dollars in order to win the crown.

Following the event Orage is throwing an afterparty at Bourbon Street with invited DJ’s and $1000 in giveaways including a complete Orage ensemble and a pair of Armada skis.
