He parlayed that into becoming making his way to the final table which he eventually took down. David is the reigning champion for the next six months and will alway hold the title of Colossus Poker Gods Champion.
Yesterday the Free Poker Network lost one of our most instrumental poker league reps since the beginning after a long battle against cancer. Rod "The Rodster" Lovig (50) from Norfolk, NE was one of the most avid players, friend, and poker enthusiast the game has ever seen. Since the beginning days of the Nebraska Poker League Rod was a huge success all over the state in signing up new bars and making friends along the way with anyone who had a passion for sitting at the tables. He traveled across the state including SD and Iowa to expand the league and the game as best he could. He would constantly be at every league game he could making sure bars were promoting the game correctly and making sure players knew when and where to be. He would pile players into his car and drive 50 miles just to play in a league game.
