Karaoke Phil has taken down “Season” 6 and the Winter half of the session of the Free Poker Network’s “Sin City Showdown” promotion. He had already qualified for his 6th (yes sixth) straight state tournament – being held in May – but this session win will give him a double stack at Shooting Star Casino.
Before that, however, Karaoke tries his skill at the “Super TOC” today at Eric’s Bar in St. Paul. Eric’s is one of a handful of locations that has been chosen for this winner-direct-to-Vegas championship tournament. All of the Tuesday and Saturday regular winners from October (the beginning of the Fall session) through the end of March have qualified. Those who won multiple weeks will receive bonus chips. There are 29 qualifiers in the field with one or two players sporting 5000 chip stacks. Karaoke, with 3 wins in the last 6 months, will join another 5 or so players with 4000. Several additional players come in with 3000 and single time winners will start with the regular 2000 in chips.
