Tonight's game at Buffalo Pizza and Ale Cancelled!

No tourneys tonight at Buffalo Pizza and Ale. The venue had parties over the weekend, and took the opportunity to clean their carpets, which are still wet!

Let's make the most of a night off! Enjoy the trick or treaters! Watch spooky movies, tell a ghost tale to frighten little ones.

Shanannigans Wed, the Dome Thursday!

Ben Cranston Takes 1st on BPO Sunday Event

BPP player, Ben Cranston won a seat and an all expense paid to either Atlantic City or Las Vegas, by winning Sunday mornings, Bar Poker Open online weekly event.

There were 544 entries, and been was elated when with 14 left, even though low stacked, he learned he had won a seat. When he tripled up, he cruised to the final table.

When it was down to 3, he was chip leader with a narrow margin: 900k for Ben, 700k and 440k for his opponents. Final 2 started with 1.5m for Ben with 400k for the remaining opponent! When he finally took it down, he was in his own words, "Ecstatic!"
