Wichita, KS, April 27, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Over the last year 125,000+ players from across the United States have been competing to become the Amateur Poker League National Champion. By winning Regional and State Level events, 300 players have qualified to participate in the National Championship April 28th, 2007 at Sneaky Pete’s in Lewisville Texas.
The winner of the event will be headed to the 2007 World Series of Poker with their $10,000.00 entry fee paid in full! As a bonus for spectators, APL™ will be hosting a side tournament at the event, open to the public, with a $100.00 prize for 1st and 2nd place.
The APL™ has created a “front porch” atmosphere at popular establishments and venues that bridges social gaps and brings people together for a session of free poker. Chris Moneymaker is a well-known role model for amateur players who start small and think big. In 2003 he turned a $39 buy-in on a satellite tournament into a $2.5 million championship crown and instant folk-hero status among poker players worldwide. “The Amateur Poker League represents my roots,” says Moneymaker. “It’s a blueprint for how I started my career and developed my poker skills.”
Based in Wichita, Kansas, the Amateur Poker League is the fastest-growing amateur poker and gaming corporation in the United States. It was founded and incorporated in January 2004 by Kurt McPhail and Shawn Riley. Hosting more than 600 free tournaments weekly in 14 states, APL™ events have filled over 2,000,000 seats.
