Heartland Poker Tour Holds 100th Event

Three of our favorite things in this post: Joanna Krupa, the U.S. of Fucking A, and the Heartland Poker Tour.

The Heartland Poker Tour (HPT) kicked-off its 100th event yesterday is St. Louis at the River City Casino (a Pinnacle-owned property).

A number of top pros are playing the event, including Phil Hellmuth (who plays Day 1B today), Allen “Chainsaw” Kessler, Chris Moneymaker, Greg Raymer, Darvin Moon, Dennis Phillips, Bernard Lee, and Will Failla.

Chainsaw and Failla played yesterday’s Day 1A, with both advancing and Failla ending play as chip leader.

We’ve written many times that HPT is the most underreported success story in the industry. In six years, the tour has seen over 90,000 entries into their events and have awarded over $33M dollars in main event prize money.

    The wild and crazy history of baccarat is nothing short of spectacular. There are so many times in history that we have to begin our story with: “As legend has it…”, and this story is no different.

    World Poker Tour In being a very successful French rapper, Bruno Lopes (a.k.a. Kool Shen) doesn’t consider himself more than an amateur poker player. However, he might think about revising these thoughts after winning the 2012 WPT National Cannes title along with €108,000
