Northern Virginia's Top Poker Winner Announced

For the NOVA Poker Group's spring 2007 quarter, Robert Costner has emerged as the player to win the most tournaments. This makes Robert one of the best poker players in Northern Virginia and the Washington, D.C. area. Robert has placed first in 40% of all money tournaments he has played for the quarter.

The question is often asked, is poker a game of skill or a game of chance? To repeatedly win two out of five of every multi-table tournaments played, Robert shows that it is skill, not just luck that makes a poker win. The alternative is to suggest that Robert is the luckiest poker player in Northern Virginia.

The NOVA Poker group (NPG) is a group of amateur poker players who host weekly home games. NOVA stands for Northern Virginia. Home poker tournaments without a rake, such as those held by NPG, are 100% legal in Virginia. NPG holds a tournament every Tuesday night and also holds tournaments each weekend, usually on a Friday or Saturday.

Robert Costner is an Arlington, Virginia resident who plays in or runs about 500 Texas Hold'em poker tournaments per year. Robert has won in bar games, home games, internet tournaments, and casino tournaments. He can be found playing at casinos such as Showboat and Harrah's in Atlantic City, as well as various bars and restaurants in the local northern Virginia area.
