Arizona State Poker Championship Aug 14-18, 2015

Official Tournament Details:   Link to Talking Stick Website Event Details

Shaun will be participating in the 11th Annual Arizona State Poker Championship at Talking Stick Casino & Resort.  This is his first time attending this event and casino.  He decided to skip the $5M guarantee at Seminole Hard Rock, FL which is the headlining live major in the tournament poker world this weekend.  Shaun reason’s that the big pros will all be in Florida which means a local based softer field in Arizona.   Shaun has also discovered a new found love with the state of Arizona and its beautiful land and mother nature.  He plans on camping in Sedona and the Grand Canyon after he wins the state championship.

Lead the way, Shaun.  Check out the Gpoker facebook page for updates.

RESULT OF TOURNAMENT:   Shaun would go on to bust out from the event on day 1b and day 1c after firing two entries.  Shaun tried to pull off a bluff on a monotone flop that couldn’t get a fold by the really inexperienced West African player who asked the table and dealer if he had to stay the whole night and play.  Shaun was slow rolled two times and the last one was met by a thunderous cheer by the West African.  Good game Arizona.

On the bright side, Shaun was able to camp in the wilderness of Sedona after the tournament and then hike the Bright Angel Trail at the Grand Canyon and camp at Indian Garden down in the canyon.  Pictures to be posted.  In meantime, you can visit Shaun’s facebook page for pics.
