Poker tournament News

There are a couple of poker tournaments going on right now... formost among those is the Legends of Poker Tournament at the Bicycle Casino out in California.

There are many events to this tournament culminating in the $5000 buy in No Limit Texas Holdem championship event scheduled for Aug 27th.

There is a WSOP Tourname Circuit event going on right now at the Grand Casion in Tunica MS. I'm sure this will get some TV time later.... the main event for this is a $10000 Buy in No Limit Texas Holdem Championship, slated for Aug 22nd.
I was in Tunica for a WPT event this past Jan, and stayed at the Grand Casino. I really liked this casino, but their tournament staff left something to be desired... hopefully they have learned and evolved. ;-)

The London Open completed on Aug 5th. This was a $10000 event. THe top ten were:

1 Iwan Jones $750,000 672
2 Mikael Thuritz $400,000 560
3 Henrik Joern $200,000 448
4 Chip Jett $150,000 336
5 Ken Lennaard $110,000 280
6 Willie Tann $75,000 224
7 Marcel Luske $60,000 168
8 Karina Jett $45,000 112
9 Dominic Tofani $30,000 56
10 Derek Baxter $20,000 34

Pretty cool that both Chip Jett, AND his wife Karina made the top ten! Nice payday for the Jett's!
