A big congratulations go out to Mike Marek from Grand Forks, ND and Kyle Skinner from New Castle, DE as each has won the elusive double stack at Nationals on June 3rd! Mike took down the regional online tournament on April 24th and had previously won a spot at the ND State Championship the day before! Kyle was the big National TOC winner online. Earlier Kyle had also scratched his way into the Nationals with 4 of a kind! Nice work guys!
We are getting down to the nitty gritty to see who will be qualified for the Hold'em or Fold'em National Championship on Friday June 3rd at Planet Hollywood Casino in Las Vegas. Two players just punched their ticket into the tournament by scratching off four of a kind. Kenny Maertins from Randolph, NE scratched off four 5's and John Sayler from Bismarck, ND scratched off four 7's. Congrats guys!
Jimmy Miles is the current national champ, earning a $10,000 high roller poker package that included $5,000 worth of buy-ins (some of which he will use coming up in this year's World Series of Poker), $2,000 cash, as well as air/hotel benefits and even dinner/show tix and limousine service!!
Will the next champ be YOU??
Ken Albrecht from Bismarck, ND is heading to Las Vegas this summer for the June 3rd Nationals! Ken just turned in a scratch poker card where he scratched off 4 of a kind. Ironically he scratched off four - 4's. He used all seven attempts, but the got there. Way to go Ken!
