Recently at the Parting Glass in Saratoga Springs, NY players from all over the state of NY gathered to see who the final eight players would be to secure their spot in the National Championship in Las Vegas. When it was all said and done the final eight were: Duane Stocum, Stan Coulter, Jon McDonald, David Sader, Bill Lucas, Robert Berger, Adam Lawrence, and Vince Decicco. All eight players have won their spot at the FPN National Championship on June 29th at the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas and all eight are guaranteed a WSOP buy-in. Depending on how they finish at the National Championship will determine what amount WSOP buy-in they get.
As a added bonus the winner of the NY State Championship Duane Stocum won $1,000 for taking the tournament down. There was also a second chance freeroll that Tyson Evenson won to win a spot at Nationals. Tyson had already qualified for National by scratching off four of a kind and will start the day with a double chip stack and 20,000.
Congrats to all and good luck at Nationals!
