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!
