Jones swashbuckles Flynn for STPT title

She couldn't pull off the WSOP Ladies Championship repeat this year.

But the Small Town Poker Tour and charity organization Corps of Compassion will always consider Mary Jones a true champion - both at the table and in spirit.

Jones took down the title at the recent STPT Pro-Am Championship in Las Vegas, and proceeded to donate the bulk of her winnings right back to the sponsored charity.

"Mary is what the STPT is all about," said Mark Fracalossi, STPT creator. "Poker players uniting for a good cause and giving back. I would like to thank Mary publicly for her support of charity poker, she truly has a big heart."

Held last week at the South Point Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, the STPT Pro-Am Championship is the culmination of the yearly STPT tour, which makes it way around the world raising funds and awareness for various charities.

This year's final included all the STPT Champions from the year and several tough local Las Vegas pros, with Jones finally knocking out Under The Gun Video Magazine executive producer Kelly "All In" Flynn for the title.

The event was also attended by Corps of Compassion founder Scott Sullivan, whose continuing commitment to homeless children actually kept him from seeing the conclusion of the tournament, as he had to leave to deliver backpacks of food.

"Scott's mission to the children is what made us choose his charity as benefactor of the STPT Pro Am," Fracalossi said.
