College Poker Championship 2005-06

by Lou on September 21, 2005

I haven’t blogged for a few days and won’t for the next three, so I’ll squeeze this one in now, while I have the time.

Tomorrow I’m off to State College, Pennsylvania, home of Penn State University. Penn State topped the leaderboard in the 2004-05 College Poker Championship among all participating college and universities. Since the 2005-06 College Poker Championship is kicking off now, I’m off to present a trophy to the school and host a poker tournament on campus.

If you are a student, full-time or part-time, undregraduate or in grad school or a professional school such as an MBA program, law school, or med school, you’re eligible to take part in this seasons College Poker Championship.

There’s NEVER any cost to participate and last years overall champion, Chad Flood of the University of Minnesota’s Twin Cities campus won himself $41,000, and some more money for the charity of his choice. Chad will be back to defend his championship this year and is eager to start playing.

You can enroll by going to, downloading the software and signing up. Every Sunday is poker night on campus, so come play in this year’s College Poker Championship. I love this tournament. It lasts for six months, provides money to fund education in the same manner as a Pell Grant — money right in your hand to use any way you wish as long as you’re a qualified student — and it provvides money for a variety of charaties too.

I am the volunteer host for this event, so pardon me if I take up my own space to promote it. I believe in the CPC, and if you are a poker playing college student anywhere in the world, c’mon and sign up and log on. It’s all free, and all good.
