Poker players, we’ve got a Summer specialty tournament coming up on July 23rd at MainStreet Bar in Hopkins at 2pm! MainStreet will be paying out the maximum prize allowance ($200 value) for this event: $100 cash for first place, $50 gift card for second place, $30 gift card for third, and $20 gift card.
This tournament is limited to 50 people who will qualify for the event. How do you qualify for this tournament? I’m glad you asked!
Straight Flush Management will be tracking all players points from June 19th through July 16th and the 50 people who earn the most points across ALL VENUES will be qualified for the event. Meaning the more venues you play, the more chances you have to earn points in order to qualify for the tournament.
Beginning on Monday, June 27th, we will post the list of the top 50 point leaders. This list will ONLY be updated weekly. Please do not ask your TD’s about it as the owners will be keeping track and keeping the list current. Again, it will only be published once a week, on Mondays.
TAG TEAM POKER TOURNAMENT with $200 IN CASH PRIZES
Break out your parachute pants and neon shirts and come play some poker like its 1985! You and your partner will play four blind levels individually, and then you will combine chip stacks and alternate playing each blind level.
