Ryan Rogers Wins 2006 College Poker Championship

by Lou on May 26, 2006

Congratulations to Ryan Rogers, of Kenata, Ontario Canada for winning the third annual College Poker Championship.

This event, which is played as a series of preliminary events leading up to an online final, and taking most of the academic year to complete, culminated in Ryan, with Ks-Ts calling an all-in bet by his opponent who held K-7. Although a big favorite before the flop, Ryan was the underdog when the flop was 3d-Kc-7d, giving his opponent two pair. But a ten fell on the turn giving Rogers two bigger pair, and the final trey on the river changed nothing.

Ryan Rogers wins $50,000 in scholarship money, a donation to the charity of his choice, and the distinction of overcoming some 30,000 other entrants from thousands of colleges and universities worldwide.

Participants in the College Poker Championship must be enrolled as a student in any accredited college community or online college for any period during the academic year. Any student qualifies, whether they are full time or part time, graduate or under graduate, at a 1-year, 2-year, 4-year or graduate school. Students must be at least 18 years of age to participate and compete for more than $200,000 in scholarship money. Entry into the tournament is entirely free, and no purchase is ever required.
