Jon Lattergrass of Fargo is the latest big winner in the Free Poker Network, winning a $10,000 "Top Gun Poker Package" which included $5,000 of tournament buy-ins (WSOP), hotel/air, limo pickup, dinner and show tickets for 2, and $2,000 cash. It was Jon's first trip to Vegas and he made the most of it. The final table was stacked with successful FPN players, including 2 previous nat'l champions. Jon earned his way to Vegas playing free poker nights at The Bowler.

The weekend included several cash tournaments with overlays to the next league championship ("Colossus Poker Gods") coming up in June with a $10,000 main event seat up for grabs. The event was held at the Golden Nugget poker room, which was packed all weekend due to the influx of over 100 FPN players from around the country. LeAnn Wolff from Fargo, ND just missed out taking second place and scored her biggest ever casino tournament win with $800. Laurie Kasper from Glenville, MN qualified for the national championship by taking down the "Last Chance" tourney the night before and $1350 for first place.
