SUQUAMISH — When it came down to just three, they split the pot. After all, those left at the table — Roger Vergin, Chris Kennedy and Linda Allen — knew they were headed to Las Vegas, Nev., having earned spots at the 2011 World Series of Poker Senior Event, June 17.

That’s how the final table played at Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort on May 22. A total of 143 players signed up to battle it out in the World Series of Poker® Satellite Tournament. After more than 11 hours of play, the top 14 places shared the $16,445 prize pool.

Players looking for a shot at making it to the World Series of Poker No-Limit Hold 'em Championship, July 7, have one more chance at Clearwater this month. On June 12 at 11 a.m., the Poker Room will host a final Satellite Tournament. The top finisher will win a seat at the World Series of Poker® Main Event in Las Vegas, Nev., plus thousands in cash. Entry fee for the June 12 satellite is $240 with a $10 Dealer Bonus for an additional 2,500 in tournament chips. With a full event, the prize pool will be more than $30,000. Sign-up is available in the Clearwater Poker Room.

On Father’s Day, June 19, Clearwater’s Poker Room will host its bi-monthly Deep Stack Tournament. Like the Clearwater Classic, the event touts stair-stepped blinds and 20-minute rounds. Entry fee is $100 for 7,500 in tournament chips.  For real-time information on what’s happening at the Clearwater Casino Poker Room, call (360) 598-8775, follow ClearPoker on Twitter or visit the website at www.clearwatercasino.com.
