Our previous tournament, A.R.K. (Arkansas Regional Knockouts) IV, had almost 200 people, over $4000 in total pots, and special guests EG Justin Wong and MRN Marn! A.R.K. V is gearing up to be bigger and better. Our goal with this tournament is to feature the best that the South has to offer. Yes, we have reached out to all of the best players in the region. However, we are also showcasing the talent that the South has in other areas. Interrupted Gaming and Boom Gorillas are collaborating to do the A.R.K. V tournament stream. The after-party will be a live broadcast of PandaxGaming's Pandagon. In addition, almost all of the local tournament organizers and their communities will be in attendance including players from Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Louisiana.
Please join us, get blasted, and hopefully win some big money! We are expecting approximately 200 people to be here!
