Greetings friends! This page will be the headquarters for your updates all weekend long as we play down to a winner in 3 separate one day tournaments in fantastic Canterbury Park, located in Shakopee, MN off of hwy 169.TODAY: Event #3: Sunday, July 22, 12:30pm: $100 NL “Crazy Pineapple.”
ALL three tournaments this weekend benefit Ronald McDonald House – Upper Midwest, with ~5% of the prize pool going to them. See the structure sheet for specifics.
Three lucky winners are going to walk out of this weekend taking home these beautiful looking trophies, will one of them be you?
Last night we had a rad $250 NLHE “Winners Shown” tournament that drew 129 entrants. Check out the entire tournament updates here.
Two nights ago, our $80 NL “Crazy Pineapple” drew 215 entrants, and you can view all those live updates here.
With two events complete, we’ve unofficially raised $7,688.60 already, between the money taken out of prize pools, and many generous pledges and donations from players! If you’d like to donate as well, feel free to locate Mike Schneider or one of the floors!!
There are a few weekend road closures/events to be aware of:
- I494 will be shutting down/lanes closed almost all weekend, per the city of Bloomington’s website:
We recommend figuring out alternative routes if you typically travel I494 through Bloomington.
- Warped Tour is at Canterbury 11am-9pm on Sunday, July 22. This means that our Sunday tournament that starts at 12:30pm will likely have tricky parking at Canterbury, so plan accordingly and allow yourself a few extra minutes to arrive to Canterbury and get inside!
Lastly, while you wait for this weekend’s events to get underway, why don’t you check out our archived coverage from last fall’s two “Winners Shown” events we held at Canterbury Park, which benefited Second Harvest Heartland to the tune of $2,472.30.
Event 1, 9/9/17 at Canterbury Park: $450 NLHE “Winners Shown”
