We are only three short days away from possibly crowning a new NATIONAL CHAMPION! The reason why we can't say we will be crowning a new National Champion is becuase Joel Smith (MN) will be playing in his 6th National Championship. In FPN history we have never had a two time National Champion, however Joel will have the opportunity to not only become the first person to win it twice, but also do it back to back.
Everyone that is coming to Vegas has been invited to our suite on Friday night for some free cocktails to unwind before we get after it the next day. Steve and the promotional girls will be there all dressed up so if you are coming, make sure to have your camera ready!
The National Championship will start on Saturday, Jan. 30th at with a start time of 9am Vegas time. There were 129 qualifiers for Nationals and so far we have received about 100 RSVP's confirming they will be in attendance. Those 100 players will be from 13 different states. The field will be made up of 20% females our highest ever at Nationals. The last 100 players represent the top 1% of the field remaining that participated in the Casino Royale promotion.
Will the FPN title remain in MN or will another state claim it? Current National Championship count is MN - 7, ND -3, NE -2, SD -2, TX -1, DE -1, and IL -1.
