Oklahoma rancher wins WPT tour package

For those of you who keep track of the World Poker Tour (WPT), you'll be seeing a lot of Augie Foxx, a rancher from Idabel, Okla. He won the grand prize, a WPT Season Pass, at the WPT Boot Camp final poker tournament in the Bahamas earlier this month.

The Boot Camp Conference saw 196 attendees who spent $3,995 to head to the Caribbean and spend five days at the WPT Boot Camp Conference working on their poker play.

Fox defeated them all during the Texas Hold'em tournament that wrapped up the conference to win a WPT Season Pass. The Season Pass includes 15 buy-ins to WPT main events and $14,000 for travel expenses.

He has the next three seasons to use up the prize package worth $160,000.

Second place winner Chris Stadler won a seat at the WPT World Championship in April. That includes the $25,000 buy-in for the event. Laurie Church won the $10,000 buy-in for a WPT event of her choice for her third place finish.

The WPT events will give these winners a chance to put their Boot Camp knowledge to the test after having been to seminars hosted by T.J. Cloutier, Chip Jett, Todd Brunson, Kathy Liebert and more.

The participants at the WPT Boot Camp also had the chance to socialize with and get tips and tricks from the pros.
