This month-long series featured more than 270 poker tournaments including Omaha high/low, HORSE, Badugi, Mixed Games, 7 Card Stud and plenty of heart-pounding No Limit Hold ‘em action, as well as cash games, special tournaments for seniors and ladies, and two signature bracelet events - the Poker Queen Ladies Championship and the Grand Finale No Limit Championship.
With increased player counts in each of its first five years, the 2013 Grand Poker Series welcomed its highest number of participants yet with more than 25,000 players from all over the globe, including 371 players and a $360,000 prize pool in the Grand Finale. The complete 2013 Grand Poker Series prize pool totaled more than $2,000,000.
The Golden Nugget crowned Robert “Guru” Kuhn as the Grand Finale Champion on Thursday, July 4. Kuhn took home the first place prize of $86,367 in addition to the gold and diamond Poker Shark bracelet. He outlasted a field of 371 players including over an hour of grueling heads up play to win the title.
One lucky lady also took home the title of Poker Queen during the series. On June 29, Dianna Lee Norman bought in for $240 and won $17,782 and the gold and diamond Poker Queen bracelet valued at $5,000 in a two day ladies-only tournament.
