Online poker tournament will challenge man's claims of poker superiority. One thousand dollar bounty offered.

When I play poker, I like to let my opponents know that I am a superior player. It only seems fair

Anyone who has watched poker on television is aware that some players lack the proper poker etiquette. Indeed, there are players known for flopping on the floor, cursing, and other bad behavior. In addition you have the boastful player who repeatedly claims his skill exceeds that of his opponents. Jack R., who prefers his last name remain anonymous, made such a claim recently. This time, however, he is being put to the test.

“When I play poker, I like to let my opponents know that I am a superior player. It only seems fair,” Jack laughs. “Since I’ve begun playing using my gut feelings, I haven’t lost a pot.”

Playing poker several times a week has allowed Jack to practice his poker skills. He frequently sees familiar faces around the poker table, and enjoys goading others with bragging. While boasting to a fellow poker player last week, Jack’s ability was finally challenged.

“Jack claims to be the best poker player around,” explains Phan Jung. “I plan to put that claim to the test, and put an end to his arrogance.”

Having played against Jack on many occasions, Phan grew tired of the boasting. To prove his point, he has arranged to run an poker tournament, hosted by a popular online poker room, and place a “bounty” on Jack’s head.

“Whoever knocks Jack out of the tournament will receive $1000,” says Phan. “I plan to shut Jack up once and for all, and prove a point to all the arrogant players out there.”

Not just reserved for friends, Phan and Pacific are opening this tournament up to the public. “I hope to have many people sign up for this event,” explains Phan. “Everyone is welcome.”

In addition to the $1000 bounty, top winners will share in the prize pool, which is predicted to be quite large.
