The DPT Season X schedule is winding down, with 2 official POY points events coming up the weekend of June 4th-5th. We start off in Wahpeton at Terrace Lanes for a Friday Night Special tourney ("Yosemite Sam Reload Open") which features a turbo format and reload friendly chip stacks. That will be a blast! The very next day the DPT crew returns to Grand Forks with a 1-day tournament at South Gate Bar & Casino. The South Gate event will feature the full live stream production. Note, you can win a FREE seat to these events the week of at Terrace Lanes in Wahpeton (Tues & Thurs) and at South Gate and East Grand Forks American Legion on their poker nights. You can help spread the word by showing interest on the Facebook events. Spread the word!
After these events, the DPT will take most of the summer off and then return for an exciting DPT Championship event weekend which will feature a Player Appreciation Freeroll, Tournament of Champions, and Player of The Year (Season X) Awards. Not to mention the DPT Championship Tournament which will be the FINAL opportunity for players to earn POY points for Season X.
What's on tap for next season? During the summer we'll be putting together a schedule for next season which will involve some new exciting new venues and big prize pools. Stay tuned!
