College Poker Championship: Still Time to Sign Up and Play — and It’s All At No Cost

by Lou on April 21, 2006

If you’re a college student — four-year college, junior college, grad school; it doesn’t matter — you still have some time to enter this year’s College Poker Championship, a not-for-profit, absolutely free tournament aimed at finding the world’s best college no-limit Texas hold’em player.

Last year’s winner, Chad Flood of the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities, outlasted a field of some 30,000 (yes, that’s right: a field five times larger than the main event at the World Series of Poker) to win more than $40,000 in scholarship money for himself and $10,000 to a charity of his choice.

To qualify, all you have to do is go to, download the software and play in one of the preliminary events held every Sunday. The top five percent of the finishers in each weekly event move onto the Regional Finals, which will be played online on May 14. The top ten percent of the finishers in that event go on to the Finals, which are slated for May 21.

There’s never a cost to enter, so you have everthing to win and nothing to lose. Give it a go. I guarantee you’ll enjoy it.
