The Flying Dutchman will make a poker appearance in Washington.

Marcel Luske is heading to the World Poker Store's newest retail location in Federal Way, Wash., to host Hold'em for the Holidays. The free tournament will take place Friday.

Marcel Luske, "The Flying Dutchman," is a member of the World Poker Store Advisory Board, which organizes the Bar Poker League in several states in the United States. As a two-time No. 1-ranked European player with several poker wins under his belt, Luske will bring some poker power to the event.

In conjunction with a 5 p.m. (PST) meet-and-greet and his appearance at the tournament's final table, Luske will be signing autographs, posing for pictures and sharing his poker experiences with poker fans.

Reserved tournament seats will be given away at the World Poker Store throughout the week and the Friday tournament is open to the public on a first come, first seated basis. Limited seats are available, and participants will be playing for prizes in the free tournament.

Luske, who will be en route to the World Poker Tour Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, will then join the players at the final table.

Other pros who serve on the WPS Advisory Board with Luske are Phil Hellmuth, Johnny Chan, Hoyt Corkins, Patrik Antonius and Liz Lieu. They all represent the company around the world as well as advise it on the poker industry.

The Washington World Poker Store will also be promoting the Bar Poker League throughout the holidays to help build a member base to launch the league in the state in January.

The Bar Poker League will hit the Washington market with live Texas Hold'em tournaments hosted at bars and restaurants throughout the Seattle and Tacoma area as part of the global poker community.
