Lyskawa wins WPT Regional in Milwaukee



Potawatomi Bingo Casino in Milwaukee hosted the World Poker Tour Regional Spring Challenge on March 11. The $500 buy-in event was capped at 200 players and quickly sold out, creating a prize pool of $100,000; in addition, there were four celebrity $500 bounties, including the WPT’s Vince Van Patten, Dick Van Patten, Eileen Davison and Jimmy Van Patten.

In the end, Paul Lyskawa took down the $29,000 first-place prize and became a WPT Regional champion. The event proved a tremendous success, so much so that Potawatomi is planning another WPT Regional for July 29.
