Junkies Poker Open 2017, the first-ever held at MGM National Harbor in Prince George’s County, Md., was a record-setting success!
With 656 total players registered, a Maryland state record for the largest live-seated poker tournament, the prize pool boomed to $162,688, with payouts going 63 places deep.
More than 100 people arrived at the casino the night before to pre-register, and a new line had formed early the next morning, trailing around the corner, for 9 a.m. registration the day of the tournament.
The Junks were greeted by a surprise guest, comedian Marlon Wayans, during their pre-tournament broadcast!
In the end (which didn’t arrive until around 2 a.m.), Dave H. from Bristow and Chris B. from Old Town took home just over $16,000 each.
