August numbers in – Karaoke wins Erick’s Bar and takes Season II lead

The August stats are complete for Tuesday’s Free Poker Network (FPN) at Erick’s Bar in St. Paul and our own Karaoke Phil both took down the month and took the overall season II lead.

Karaoke, playing in his 7th consecutive FPN promotion has already qualified for October’s State Championship in this “Free Poker Network Poker Pro” offering but he is looking to earn a double chip stack at state.  He can do that by having the most points and winning the bar outright in season II, which ends in September, or, by qualifying a second time through the regional tournament structure.
By pulling down two final tables and pointing two other weeks out of the 5 Tuesdays played in August Karaoke won the month with 690 points.  His efforts also put him back ahead of Derek Bouchard and Ben Zvan who have been playing well in July and August.  Karaoke has now qualified for a double stack at Regionals with this finish and his 5th place showing in July.  A solid finish in September will either get him a triple chip stack at regions or an automatic double chip stack at State should he be the overall bar leader.
Stay tuned for more updates on his progress towards FPN’s Poker Pro contract promotion.
