I can not believe I am going to the WSOP!
Denver, CO (PRWEB) June 20, 2008
Chewey Lam, founder of PokerAcrossAmerica.com, has announced that a seat in a $1500.00 No Limit Hold 'Em tournament has been awarded to James Forsythe of California. The drawing for the prize was held Saturday, May 31, 2008 in Aurora, CO at a free poker tournament. Chuck Plante and Jay Mairley of PokerAcrossAmerica.com were on hand to document the event as hundreds of spectators cheered the drawing.
Video of the drawing has been posted on YouTube. The original name drawn was not the recipient of the prize. According to Chewey Lam, "We tried everything we could to reach her, but were unsuccessful. As stated in our sweepstakes rules, the next name drawn will receive the prize." That lucky person was James Forsythe. "I can not believe I am going to the WSOP!" exclaimed Forsythe. The poker information website says it plans to begin another sweepstakes for the 2009 World Series of Poker within the next few weeks.
