2018 Bar Poker Open $200,000 championship at the Golden Nugget

I won $1,800.00!

On June 6th during my annual trip to Las Vegas with Pikes Peak Poker I placed 15th out of more then 1,200 entrants playing Texas Holdem Poker.
I posted some of this on Facebook as soon as it happened.  I wanted to put more detail on my blog.

Unfortunately the recording starts right before I get knocked out. I'm on Twitch!  My stepson is going to be so jealous. At least everyone gets to watch my losing hand. It was fun to play such an enormous tournament at the Golden Nugget.
This year we brought about 80 Pikes Peak Poker players from Colorado Springs.
There were other events scheduled throughout the week, but my main focus was the big tournament.  One evening the whole league met at Nacho Daddy for drinks and snacks.  That place is a blast.  On a previous trip I swallowed a scorpion (yes on purpose).

On a different night a few of us made it to Top Golf for some driving range fun.  I had never been to that place before and we had so much fun.  I am not as bad at Golf as I remembered. We had to start really late because there was a private party.  We split into two groups we had so many people.  When I found out that they have Top Golf locations in Colorado.  I definitely plan to make a trip soon.

The only way in North America to play Bar Poker for $200,000 is through BPO Leagues! This record breaking championship is not open to the public, it is only open to those who have qualified through their local leagues. Pikes Peak Poker has been part of Bar Poker Open for 3 years now.
Check out the BPO Website

I have been playing free bar poker for several years now. I even met my wife playing poker.  BPO lets me play for large prizes without risking a large buy-in.

Don't misunderstand.  I play all sorts of poker for different stakes.  I have actual cashed once for even more money in 2016 at a tournament in Blackhawk Colorado.
