Gerri Wagner and Tyke Almquist were the big winners of the Illinois State Championship as they took first and second respectively at the 100 WSOP IL State Championship. The state championship consisted of all players from FPN in the state of IL coming together to determine who the new champs were to get qualified for the National Championship in Las Vegas. Both Gerri and Tyke won airfare allowance and a hotel stay.
The top five players all qualified, joining Gerry and Tyke are Anthony Burbatt, Jason Lestina, and David Beseke. All five will be shooting for the final table to win a $1,000 WSOP buy-in or if one of them wins it all they get the $1,000 buy-in and a $10,000 Main Event Seat. Congratulations to all and good luck in Nationals!
