Between Nov 12th and Dec 20th the winner of each round will qualify for the CHRISTMAS CASH GIVEAWAY. This tournament will be held at Roadhouse Saloon on Sunday December 21 at 2pm.

1st place-$200

2nd place-$100

3rd place-$50

We will have our regular session that day @ 6 and 9pm with a Dirty Santa gift exchange after the 6pm tournament.

All participants bring their gift to "the pile." Gifts are wrapped, but are not labeled to reflect a sender or recipient. Gifts are typically inexpensive, humorous items or used items from home; the term Dirty Santa refers to a gift whose cost exceeds its usefulness.

All participants draw a number to determine their order. The participant with #1 unwraps any gift from the pile and then shows it to everyone (The person that goes first also gets an additional turn at the end). Each successive participant, in the order determined from the drawing, can either 1) "steal" an already opened gift (if there's one they really like) or 2) be adventurous and go for a wrapped gift from the pile. If the participant chooses to steal, the person whose gift is stolen now repeats their turn and either 1) steals another person's gift (they cannot immediately steal back the gift that was just stolen from them) or 2) unwraps a new gift.

Since items can be stolen, the item in your possession is not yours until the game is over (i.e. a food item cannot be eaten until the game is over). However, the a gift is "dead" or "safe" after it has been stolen 3 times.

Monte Heuton had what it took to win the first $1500 WSOP seat giveaway from The Poker Pub. Monte outlasted a field of 160 players and played solid poker for over 9 hours. Monte came to the final table short stacked and patient. On the final hand Monte limped in for 60k with pocket kings. The flop was 4,5,6 with two spades. Joseph Allan bet 125k on the flop, Monte pushed all in for 425k more. Joe paused for a minute and called the 425k bet with 8,9 off. The turn was a 2 the river a J. This hand left Joe with 5k in chips and was knocked out the next hand. Monte won The Poker Pub WSOP giveaway, which includes an entry into the $1500 buy-in event at the 2009 World Series of Poker.

Monte was cheered on most of the day by his brother Mike, and several friends who were knocked out of the tournament earlier in the day. They stayed at Roadhouse Saloon to cheer on their favorite poker player. Everyone played solid poker and the event seemed to be a success. The next WSOP giveaway begins in January 2009.

FINALLY, Joplin wins a Border War!!!! Joe Groce from Joplin and Leslie Thomas from Fayetteville were the last 2 players standing in Border Wars 9. They agreed to chop up the money, taking home $750 each and play a final hand for the title and the PARTY. Joe rivered a straight and took down the title. Leslie had made an AMAZING come back to end up heads up. When the blinds were 10k and 20k she had 4k in chips and was "ALL IN" in the blind. She won the hand to triple up and was all in again with JJ which held up which was good for a quadruple up. From there she was on auto pilot to heads up. Joe on the other hand was a dominate force throughout the whole tournament, coming to the final table as one of the chip leaders. He also won April's $50 bounty cracking her AA with Q 10, the flop was 10 10 5. GREAT JOB LESLIE and JOE! Here is a list of the rest of the final table and payouts. Curtis Walbe NWARK $300, Glyn Moppin NWARK $200, Paul Chowning JOP $100, Buck Conway JOP $75, April Borup SGF $75 and last SGF player, Thomas Fenner NWARK $50, Tim Carpenter SGF $50, James Deer SGF $50.

Also, the morning OMAHA tournament went much better than I expected. We had 84 players and I'd say 75 had never played before. But I think overall everyone had fun and some even left saying they liked it and would like to play again. The final table at the Omaha tournament was POKER PUB packed with Victor Staelens from SGF winning over $600. Laura Patterson (3rd) & Craig Thomas (4th) cashed from NWARK. Jay Cote NWARK was the BUBBLE. Kyle Glendenning (2nd), Joe Borup(5th), Cari Breckenridge (6th), Sandy Cheatum(7th), and Rick Gerard (8th) all cashed from SGF. Brent Patton was 10th and the only player from Joplin to make the final table.

All in all the day went well and I look forward to BORDER WAR 10.

We are starting our new WSOP Bracelet Event Buy qualifying the top 4 of each round nightly Here is how it works:
Players who make it to the final 4 of any session will receive invitation cards, however, we will now be playing a qualifier every 4 to 6 weeks for the WSOP. Each card a player gets will continue to be worth $100 chips in the qualifier event and the qualifier will continue to have 2 sessions. The change in structure will be the top 24 of each WSOP qualifier will get a card for the WSOP finals tournament. The first invitation card will get a player into the WSOP qualifier and if they qualify more than once, the additional cards will be worth $500 chips each with no one being able to start the WSOP tournament with more than $1000 in extra chips. The WSOP tournament will be held the same way the TOC is currently run with 2 sessions playing down to the final 4.
In addition to the final table of 8 @ the WSOP tournament, there will be one wild card seat. The final table will be a 9 person event. The wild card will be chosen from faithful poker pub supporters, ones who continuously support their bars and servers. To qualify for the wild card seat, play 14 tournaments per week or for every $50 (not including tip) you spend on any night during poker you will receive an entry into a drawing to be the 9th player at the next WSOP tournament final table. Give the tournament host a copy of your receipt to be entered. The new structure is designed so no player will have a huge chip advantage over other players, reduce tournament field, and as always to have fun.
Finals tournaments (times, dates & location in Joplin TBA) where the WINNER will receive a seat in a **WSOP $1500 Buy In bracelet event at the 2009 WSOP & lodging for two!
**The 2009 WSOP event schedule has not been posted yet. Lodging will be for 2 people for 3 days & 2 nights. Payouts at WSOP events vary depending on the number of entries. Some restrictions apply.
