Free Poker Network

The Free Poker Network(FPN) will return to the Golden Nugget in Downtown Las Vegas for the Chasin' Bracelets National Championship from January 6-8.

Players from around the country have been working all year to claim their spot in Las Vegas for an opportunity to win a $11,500 Main Event poker package and 19 other $1,500 packages will be given away in the Chasin' Bracelets National Championship tournament in the Golden Nugget ballroom. A total of over $45,000 in prizes will be given away throughout the event and PokerNews will be on hand to capture all of the action from Saturday's Tag Team Championship and Sunday's Main Event.

Players qualified for their spot in the championship tournament throughout the year in local and online tournaments, as well as through drawings and opportunities to win a seat instantly. FPN players (and their families) that did not qualify direction for the event still have the opportunity to do so through cash buy-in qualifiers on January 6 and 7.

The first of four cash buy-in qualifiers will be on Friday at 10:00 a.m. and another opportunity will follow at 4:00 p.m. Both satellites cost $160 to enter and there will be $1,500 Mystery Bounty prizes available in addition to championship seats for the top 15% of the field.

Saturday will feature two more qualifiers, a mega-edition at 10:00 a.m. with seats for the top 25% of the field, and a Tag Team Championship at 4 p.m. which will award seats to both members of each team in the top 10% of the field. Saturday's events will also cost $160, and all winning players will return for their shot at the championship on Sunday at 10:00 a.m. Sunday's championship will be livestreamed on the FPN Youtube channel with commentary from Poker Night in America's Chris Hanson.
