Caryn played amazing poker, eliminating 5 of the 8 players at the final table!  She faced a huge chip deficit when they reached heads up play, however she whittled away at the monster stack until taking the chip lead.  On the final hand her A-7 offsuit held up against her opponents A-4 and the title of Best FREE Poker League in America belonged to The Poker Pub of Tucson!

CONGRATULATIONS to the WINNERS of The Poker Pub 2010 National Tournament! 

This year's Nationals were held at Binion's in the heart of Downtown Las Vegas on June 15th.  From a field of 94 players from around the nation we crowned a champion when the final 4 players agreed to chop the prize pool!  The overwhelming chip leader was David Wypychowski from Phoenix, Arizona!  David had over 325,000 in chips!  Second place finisher Leslie Quintano from Tucson, Arizona had over 120,000 in chips while 3rd place finisher Bruce Momich also from Tucson had almost 70,000 in chips and 4th place finisher Jeannette "Red" Charley from Sierra Vista, Arizona had less than 50,000 in chips.  David walked away with $3,500.00 in CASH while the other 3 players each earned $500.00! 

We witnessed some amazing poker being played throughout the day with a fair share of bad beats!  We would like to congratulate EVERYONE that qualified and participated in this year's Nationals!
