This week we will crown a new LEAGUE CHAMPION! We can't wait to see who emerges as the next "FPN Poker Pro" and be featured in the Heartland Poker Tour-Stratosphere event! The HPT Dream Package finale is Friday November 15th at 9:30am (PT). Approximately 100 players from around the league are making their way to Las Vegas to chase the "Dream Package"! In addition to the grand prize, another 30 players will earn HPT buy-ins. We are excited to see everyone soon!
You NEVER know who you will be sitting with when you play in the World Series of Poker! Allen Ollila from Liquid Assets in Dickinson, North Dakota (pictured right wearing hat) recently realized the new World Series of Poker champion, Ryan Reiss, looked a familiar! Little did Allen (or anyone else at that table) know the player to his right, Ryan Reiss ("Reiss The Beast" pictured left) would go on to become rich and famous, winning $8.4 million dollars being crowned the World Champion live on ESPN! Who knew?!!
Great idea for your poker league drink special!
