the state of
South Dakota came
together at Borrowed Bucks Roadhouse in
to see who th
e next two
Dakota champions would be for the HPT Desert Heat
promotion. Cards were in the air a
as 108 players

Doug qualified for the championship by playing at the Sportsmen's Rendezvous in Tyndal. The SD state championship was held at Old Meyer’s Pub in Huron. Magee finished off Tony Binger from Redfield, who placed runner up.
For the first time ever in Free Poker Network's history we had not one, but two players win a second grand prize package through the league. The hottest player in the league right now is Doug Magee (pictured at right, Sportsmen's Rendezvous in Tyndall, SD) who now added a $1,500 package at the Party at the Palms National Championship at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas to his prize resume. Doug joined Skip Wood (Moorhead, MN) as the first ever two-time champions. Both Doug and Skip won a $3,500 cruise package in the Ship It promotion. While on the ship Doug won the $10,000 Highroller package as well. Doug has won more grand prizes/money then anyone in league history!

Falls dominated the first session of the “Ship It!”
promotion.Rick was not only the overall
point leader of
South Dakota, but
he was also the overall point leader in
North Dakota.Rick was also able to accomplish this feat in
a shorter time frame since he only played 7 out of 8 weeks.He finished strong the last three weeks placing
