2010 Lawrence No-Limit Texas Holdem Championship. Title Bracelet to the Winner.

ALERT !! The East Lawrence Turnpike (I-70) exit is closed. Use West Lawrence or Lawrence/Lecompton exits !! West Lawrence (turns into Iowa Street) is closest to the event. The West Lawrence exit is very poorly marked heading eastbound. Start looking for it and stay in the right hand lane after you pass the Lecompton (10) exit. IF driving eastbound you miss the West exit, don't panic, go a few miles east of Lawrence to the Lawrence Rest Stop (McDonalds etc.), turn around there and head back west, take the first open Lawrence exit which will be West Lawrence.

    Throughout the tournament I heard from attendees saying what a great event it was. There truly was something special about the energy level, maybe it was the back-to-school weekend that did it. The final table was fantastic, we had several bracelet holders and repeat finalists as well as some newcomers to the game. The action was ebb and flow right up to heads up... Brian Turner really earned it.

    A lot of fun with some very nice people. The address wasn't accurate, which made finding the place a little difficult and I would prefer if the meetup was at a different type of establishment. I will difinitely consider coming again next year or to a similar meetup.
