The entry fee will be $40 and the winner will receive $1000 towards airfare and accommodations (if player resides in AB) to the IFPA State Championship finals which will be held TBD in Las Vegas, NV. All qualified competitors will receive cash prizing and placements in A division will receive plaques, as will the top player in B, C, D divisions.
