NY Players Have a Strong Showing in Vegas

Anthony Larocca from the Bold O'Donoghues in East Rockaway and Duane Goodwin from Crossroads Bar & Grill in Lansing New York had a great showing while in Las Vegas at the HPT Dream Package National Championship.  Both players placed in the top 30 winning a spot in the FPN private qualifier seat the following day.  Unfortunately both came up a bit short in the private qualifier.  Duane busted in 6th place just missing out.  Both players showed us what poker is all about in New York by showing off their skills.
