The Heartland Poker Tour circuit is the way to be enlarged because if it at its beginning in 2005, organizers brought together a prize pool of $ 100,000, at the event held in Golden Gates Casino and Poker Parlour of Black Hawk in Colorado, a prize pool of $ 1 million was recorded. In fact, 668 players registered for the $ 1,500 main event buy-in and generated a prize pool of $ 1,035,650. This is the first poker event which reached such a kitty and Craig Casino ended the event as champion after having ousted Mary Flurkey during the final duel, which earned him a prize of $ 293,270.

He faced a difficult situation before he climb to victory because he lost a big part of his stack. The champion even thought that the game is over for him but he managed to meet up the slope and access to the final table with 8,000,000 chips in hand. Darren Hicks was the first finalist to be eliminated. He pocketed $ 47,172 for his performance.
