Players from around the country make their way to Choctaw when large series such as this one come to town. With a Poker Night America Main Event title and a $1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool up for grabs, two players from distinct corners of the country have made their way here looking for a piece of the action.

David Jackson may be a Floridian, but he is a nomad when it comes to his travel schedule. Jackson has become an increasingly familiar face on the tournament circuit over the last few years and has been on the cusp of his first major live victory for some time now. This summer, Jackson bubbled the final table of the “Crazy Eights” event at the World Series of Poker, taking 11th out of a field of 6,700. Jackson’s career earnings are pushing dangerously close to the $1,000,000 mark and a deep run in this event would push him over that hump.

The last time the World Poker Tour came through Choctaw, Craig Varnell came close to having his name enshrined among the banners when he took home third place and over $300,000. The Colorado native saw his career earnings go past the $1,100,000 mark with that cash and he is back in action day looking for a repeat deep run within the confines of the Grand Theater.
