Bar Poker in Lumberton

Story in the Myrtle Beach Sun News
Poker tournaments take taverns by storm
The big attraction these days at the local tavern isn't karaoke night, a mechanical bull, pool tournaments, tight Levis, jumpin' to the jive of the jukebox or $1 brews.
Brace yourself, parents: The newest craze is tournament poker, Texas Hold 'Em style.
And with a luck and a bluff, you could win a spot in the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. It's an all-expenses-paid trip with $10,000 to wager against the best card sharks from ocean to ocean.
Scooby's is hosting World Tavern Poker Tournaments every Wednesday.
The overall winner of the tournament - which uses points and chips, not real money - will advance to Raleigh for the state finals. There, someone will earn a spot at the high roller's table in Vegas.
Place winners each night collect points toward seasonal standings, which are recorded on the Internet.
