The ONPC Champion's Trophy: A Golden Bull with a Ruby Eye


The ONPC Champion's Trophy
Originally uploaded by jstar88.
After more than a year of planning, preparation, coordination and tremendous effort, the Ongame Network Poker Classic Live Final is finally here. I'm in Barcelona with my team and the BIG PARTY is tonight. Players are arriving at the Hotel Majestic now from all over the world and excitement runs thick in the air.

I took this pic on the rooftop patio of the Hotel Majestic in Barcelona. Shown here is the gold trophy that the champion will receive on Sunday December 3. The 75-gram Swedish-handcrafted solid gold "coin" (with a ruby where the bull's eye is) can be removed from the polished granite trophy base and used as a card protector, if the player feels like using a $10,000 card protector. :

It's a nice little extra for the winner, on top of the $283,038 first prize.
