2016 Wyoming State Championship Poker Tournament

2016 Wyoming State Championship Poker Tournament

Time to crown a new Poker Champ!

The Wind River Hotel and Casino will host one of the region’s largest poker tournaments on November 18 and 19. Survive all rounds of the Wyoming State Poker Championship and you could be the winner of over $10,000 and an entry into the 2017 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, Nevada. Entry fee is $300. Space is limited so only 340 players will be allowed to register. Do well and a piece of the estimated $60,000 pool prize will be yours. The winner will also win a premium silver championship bracelet and the bragging rights for the year.

In its third year, Table Games Manager Adam Willow is excited to watch the tournament grow in size and recognition.

“I’m excited to bring a great event to the Wind River Hotel and Casino which will give the players an opportunity to have a chance to play in the world’s largest poker tournament,” Willow said.

Last year’s winner was Michael Williams of Billings, Mont. Williams was the winner of $20,160, a premium silver championship bracelet and an entry into the 2016 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, Nev. For Williams, the win came out of left field.

“It was unexpected,” Williams said after the 12 hour tournament. “I loved it.”

The Wind River Hotel and Casino is located two miles outside of Riverton, Wyo., and is owned and operated by the Northern Arapaho Tribe. To sign up for the tournament please call 307-855-2612 or visit windriverhotelcasino.com
