CONGRATULATIONS to The Poker Pub of Tucson's "April All In" Heads Up Tournament Champion, Jessica House! She earned a Trip to VEGAS along with a WSOP Cash Tournament Buy-In and the all important bragging rights as the Spring 2015 Heads Up Tournament Champion!
As a 12 seed Jessica played her way through the field of 68 players and cruised into the Finals without losing a single game in any of her best 2 out of 3 matches! Jessica has only been playing with us for a couple of months and has demonstrated a great understanding of the game. In the FINALS she faced one of our Poker Pub veterans, Anthony Llamas who won a play in match and knocked off the first #1 seed of the tournament!
The action in the final match was very intense. Jessica took the lead early in game 1 when she hit Sixes full of Jacks vs. Anthony's pocket Kings. Anthony evened things up when his pocket Jacks held up over Jessica's Queen 9 offsuit. Finally with the blinds at 1k - 2k Jessica took game 1 when her pocket Aces held up against Anthony's paired 8 on the flop and no help on the turn or river.
In the 2nd game Anthony steadily chipped away a Jessica's stack until taking it down with a Flush on the river when his 5 8 offsuit was up against Jessica's King 8 offsuit and he hit runner runner Hearts to go with the 2 flopped Hearts and his 5 of Hearts. This was Jessica's first and only loss of the tournament.
In game 3, Jessica turned the tables and steadily chipped away at Anthony's stack until taking them all when her Ace 3 suited held up against Anthony's 8 3 suited. With an Ace on the flop and no help for Anthony on the turn or river we had our first Heads Up Champion!
We hope everyone had as much fun playing in this special event as we did hosting it! We will be doing another Heads Up Event in the Fall! The next one will be a double elimination tournament. Start accumulating those points so that you can participate in this special event!
We would like to thank all of our venues and everyone that qualified and participated in this special event for making it a huge success! Don't forget to congratulate Jessica when you see her at the tables!
This year's National Tournament will be held in November in Las Vegas. Exact date & time TBA. There is the WSOP November Nine as well as a WSOP Circuit event in November so you will still be able to get your WSOP experience while in Vegas. Those of you that have won tournament buy-ins will be using them during Nationals week at the WSOP Circuit event.
Anyone that has won a Vegas trip at our monthly Vegas Trip Tournaments will be able to use it during Nationals and we are adding a National seat for you if you haven't earned your seat yet.
We have secured some complimentary hotel rooms in November for our players. We also have some casinos that may provide us with complimentary round trip travel along with the rooms. We are still in negotiations with several casinos and should know the exact number of comp rooms and travel in the next few months. Our goal is to have 100 - 150 people attend Nationals this year.
THANK YOU all for playing with The Poker Pub of Tucson and GOOD LUCK/SKILL at Nationals!

We are deeply saddened by the loss of our friend and fellow poker player, Stacey Tisdale. She was a member of The Poker Pub family for almost 9 years. Those of us that had the pleasure to know her and sit across the poker table from her were blessed to have her in our lives. She was truly a great lady and always had a kind word for everyone. Stacey was taken from us way too soon and she will be missed by many. We will be hosting a memorial tournament and fundraiser in the near future to help her family with funeral expenses.
Stacey Tisdale October 17, 1961 - April 26, 2015 R.I.P.
