The field is set, the feature table setup is ready to roll, merchandise packed up, Snapchat filters uploaded, and 200+ qualifiers have RSVP'd to takeover the Showroom at the Stratosphere the weekend of February 8-10th. Which lucky player is going to take home the top prize of $25,000 CASH??
This FPN National Championship will have a different look and feel compared with previous events. The weekend will be filled with a lot MORE poker action with the introduction of the League Champ freeroll and Last Chance Cash Tourney qualifiers and Sit-N-Go's. These tournaments give those who haven't qualified for Sunday's Main Event a chance to earn a seat or pad their chip stack up to 3x. Approximately 80 players qualified DIRECTLY for Sunday's MAIN EVENT.
FPN will have a registration booth available starting Thursday Feb 7th in the poker room where players can check in and collect their player card/lanyard (will need this to register for all FPN tourneys). Note: be sure to get your Stratosphere player card FIRST in order to register for any Stratosphere tournament. The league will be bringing the FPN championship set featuring trussing and lighting (pictured). Video clips will be posted throughout the weekend. If you can't make it to Vegas, be sure to follow Facebook and Twitter updates.
Didn't qualify? The FINAL FINAL CHANCE to qualify is by playing the 7pm nightly cash tournament on Friday and Saturday Feb 8-9th in the Stratosphere Poker Room. These tournaments will overlay ONE seat in the CASH KING MAIN EVENT on Sunday Feb 10th to the highest FPN or "friends of FPN" player.
