The Free Poker Network is excited to now be in the state of Missouri!!! The Flaming Lantern in Butler will be kicking off with the HPT Desert Heat promotion on June 1st. Good luck players.
There is one week of playing left at the Flaming Lantern in Butler as players are trying to become the first ever FPN qualifiers in Missouri. Todd Sewell is in the lead with 449 points, but there are a lot of players within striking distance to make the last week very interesting.
For anyone that doesn't qualify the Flaming Lantern will start the second session of the Desert Heat promotion on Monday July 27th to give everyone a second opportunity. Good luck players!
