Don't miss the ND Texas Holdem State Championship

The largest tournament in the Upper Midwest as the Vegas Motel in Minot once again lived up to its billing, with over 1300 players for the 3-day event. Sam Dickson from Oxbox, Saskatchewan was the big winner, taking home $35,000. Not bad for a $100 buy-in charitable event. Sam became the first Canadian to win the tournament which has grown every year. The total purse for this tournament reached $105,000.

Two ND players win big at Vegas Invasion Championship

Gina Bushey from Mr. G’s in Fargo, ND and Thomas Eaglestaff (pictured right in black) playing out of the Bismarck VFW were two of the final eight players recently at the Vegas Invasion championship at the Orleans Casino in Las Vegas.  Each player won a $2,500 package to play a World Poker Tour event or World Series of Poker event. 

They grinded all day long through a 94 player field and ended up at the final table.  With the top eight winning it was only two remaining to be one of the big winners.  It was a roller coaster ride for Gina as she was all in as a short stack, but was lucky enough to survive and be crowned one of our champions.
