It is Free Poker Network’s (FPN) MN State Championships this weekend at the Shooting Star Casino in Mahnomen, MN. This is for FPN’s “Vegas or Bust” promotion and a chance for a seat in the WSOP Main Event.
Our own Karaoke Phil has qualified for a double stack to start – 20,000 chips. This will be his 8th straight state championship event (he’s only played in 8 promotions). About 350 individuals have qualified for the state championship this time around with approximately 40 having qualified for a double starting stack.
Karaoke finished 19th at the last state tournament held this past October at Running Aces’ poker room. He’ll look to finish a few spots higher and take down a seat in the National Tournament. The top 16 finishers are slated to advance to Las Vegas. Good luck Phil.
