Joel Smith from the Rockin Horse in Richville MN became the latest FPN National Champ (winning the "Vegas Vacation" promo) and went on to cash over $15,000 in the 2015 WOrld Series of Poker!
Dianna Cogswell who plays out of Nana Chelle's in Bovey, MN was drawn for the February perfect attendance. Dianna showed up all four weeks at Nana's by doing so she has won a spot at National this Summer. We will be drawing for the March perfect attendance in a couple weeks. Remember even if you are out of the points race there are many, many different ways to get qualified for Nationals!
We recently drew for the two pair or better drawing for March. The card that was pulled out had a pair of kings and five's. We turned the card over to find out that the person that scratched if off failed to put any info on the back of the card. It was completely blank. So we drew a second one out and the lucky winner was Rick Sathre from Tower, MN. Rick was the beneficiary of having someone turn in a blank card and then getting his card drawn. Congrats Rick you are heading to Las Vegas for the National Championship!
Bradley Beachene from St. Paul, MN was recently drawn for our 2 pair or better drawing to get qualified for the Casino Royale National Championship in Las Vegas. Bradley turned in trip 7's to get qualified. Pack your bags and get ready!
Virginia Schenck who plays out of the Lakefield VFW in Minnesota last month won the spring regional online tournament. Viriginia was the winner of the her regional in the southwest corner of MN to get qualified. She then competed against all other regional winners and took them down. It's only about a dozen person tournament so it's a very valuable opportunity to get qualified for the National Championship. Make sure to keep that in mind with the upcoming regionals in October which most have been posted. Congrats Virginia, see you in Vegas!
Long time player Craig Morningstar from Rich's bar in Annandale, MN was the big winner in July. He showed up all five Wednesday's at Rich's bar and was drawn for the July perfect attendance. Just by showing up he has won a spot at the National Championship in Las Vegas! Congrats Craig!
