Caryn played amazing poker, eliminating 5 of the 8 players at the final table!  She faced a huge chip deficit when they reached heads up play, however she whittled away at the monster stack until taking the chip lead.  On the final hand her A-7 offsuit held up against her opponents A-4 and the title of Best FREE Poker League in America belonged to The Poker Pub of Tucson!

We are very excited to announce the flights for our exclusive Semi Annual Tournament!  This special event is our way of rewarding our loyal players with a chance to WIN CASH & MORE SEATS IN THE WORLD SERIES OF POKER!

Here is how it works: Due to the number of seats earned we will be hosting 15 flights starting on August 20th 2011.The TOP 25 players from each of these flights will be invited to participate in the FINALS on December 3rd - 4th 2011!  We will play each of the flights all the way down to a winner.  These flights will be deep stack tournaments with 10,000 in starting chips. Starting chips in the finals will be determined as follows:

1st place in your flight = 25,000 chips

4th - 8th place in your flight = 14,000 chips
9th - 16th place in your flight = 12,000 chips
17th - 25th place in your flight = 10,000 chips

If you finish in the TOP 25 in more than one of the flights, you will start the FINALS with the total number of chips earned!  For example: If you finish 2nd in flight #1 and 15th in flight #5 you will start the FINALS with 32,000 in chips!  There is no limit to how many chips you can earn to start the FINALS with, so if you are qualified more than once make sure you come out and earn your seats and extra starting chips for the FINALS!  This is just one way that we reward our LOYAL PLAYERS for continuing to support our venues and participate in our tournaments!
