The National Championship has been set for Friday, May 29th in Las Vegas. We are still nailing down a few last minute details with the hotel/poker room. The date is set in stone.
The National Online Tournament of Champions has been set for Tuesday night April 28th, at 7pm Central Time.
Kelly Cadwell from the Twin Cities area was the latest winner to qualify for the National Championship on May 29th. Kelly's name was randomly drawn in the perfect attendance drawing. Kelly played all four weeks at Old Chicago in Eden Prairie to get qualified. It's as easy as that.
Mike Marek (pictured at the Party at the Palms promo in '09) from the Grand Forks area is no stranger to winning online and qualifying to Las Vegas. He recently did it again winning the Fall Regional Tournament to get himself qualified for Nationals on Friday, May 29th. One of Mike's opponents that day will be Greg Haberman from Folwerville, MI who won the March 1st FPN Online tournament. Way to go guys!
Oren Goering from the Lincoln, NE area was the lucky winner in the two pair or better drawing recently. Oren turned in trip 8's to get qualified and was drawn out of the hat. He has now qualified for the National Championship in Las Vegas which will be on Friday, May 29th. We will draw next week for the March two pair or winner drawing so stay tuned and good luck.
Long time FPN poker player Carol Lippert from Fort Walton Beach, FL was drawn for the January perfect attendance drawing yesterday. Carol attended every week at Attitudes to get herself qualified. Just by showing up Carol will receive 100 scratch cards to try and get herself qualified for the National Championship for a third time. Last months winner was Deb Berg from Walhalla, ND. Deb won a local tournament buy-in, into the Dakota Poker Tour. Congrats Ladies!
