Did you hear the big news? We partnered with the World Poker Tour for a special KSR Online Poker Tournament and it’s going down soon.

Wednesday, May 20th (that’s tomorrow) at 7:00 Eastern Standard we will deal the cards to determine KSR’s first ever poker champion. When it gets to the final table, the action will stream live online with commentary from Matt Jones, Ryan Lemond, Shannon The Dude and myself.

The overall winner will not only receive all of the satisfaction that comes with being a KSR poker star, but he or she will also receive a World Poker Tour VIP Experience in Las Vegas! Other prizes are up for grabs as well, including hoodies for whoever knocks out Matt, Ryan, Shannon and me.

So if you’re interested, all of the details you need can be found below, and really pay attention to that part about signing up. The tournament is free, but you’ll need a VIP account to be eligible. It’s in the details…

    I don’t know why it’s a pet peeve of mine when people screw up EST and EDT. I’m guessing it really starts at 7:00 pm Atlantic Standard Time (which is the same as Eastern Daylight Time).
