Freddy's Story
By Bryan Sharp

Thousands of Poker Pub players from around the nation have been competing since February of 2004 for a chance to play in the “big one” The 2005 World Series of Poker! With The Poker Pub, Inc. league, players earn points and great prizes on a nightly basis. Every 4 to 6 weeks, these players compete in regional events for a seat in The Poker Pub, Inc. National Tournament of Champions. The latest TOC was held at The Legendary Stardust Hotel & Casino in Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada in June. The tournament began with 51 players representing 11 markets. One of those players was Freddy Strazzanti from Tempe, Arizona. Freddy was wearing his “lucky” poker shirt. (check out the picture) As the field narrowed, Freddy steadily and methodically built up his chip stack. He made it to the final table with a lot of ammunition to fire at his opponents. Freddy was able to avoid any major battles, and made some great lay downs. When the smoke cleared, he found himself heads up against Timm Thacker from Topeka, Kansas. Timm won the first Topeka Regional TOC to qualify for the national tournament. It didn't take long for Timm to utter those two words that we all love to hear “All In!” Freddy only hesitated for a second before saying “I call!” The cards were turned over for the showdown. Freddy was in the lead with top pair -jacks. Timm had a pair of tens, and when the turn and river cards were blanks, Freddy had won the first Poker Pub National Tournament of Champions! Freddy's job commitments prevented him from playing in the main event of the World Series of Poker. Instead, he chose to take a buy in to the $1,000 one day No Limit Hold-Em event, and a load of cash. Freddy (still wearing his lucky shirt) played very well, and managed to navigate his way through over half the field of 1200 players before his All In bet with “Big Slick Suited” got called by King-Queen off suit. The river was the 10 of hearts giving his opponent the straight. Freddy said that he would always remember that card-the 10 of hearts. We (Tom Wiley, Freddy and Myself) stayed in Vegas for a couple of days and played a lot of live action Hold Em. Freddy told me that it was one of the best experiences of his life, and that he learned a lot about the game while playing against some of the best in the world! He also said he would be back next year to defend his crown as The Poker Pub, Inc. National Champion!

Congratulations to all The Poker Pub players who won trips to Vegas and seats in the Amber Bock National Tournament. Thank you as well to our sponsors/partners at Amber Bock.
