The contest costs $4,000, with $3,000 acting as a live bankroll and the other $1,000 going into the prize pool.

Week by week, the legend grows. Jonathon Kinchen struck again this past weekend – twice. One contest veteran called it “the greatest weekend in NHC Tour history.” In an online contest Saturday, Kinchen earned what would have been his third qualification for next year’s National Handicapping Championship by finishing second. Then on Sunday, he did what he hadn’t yet been able to do this year: He got the outright win on NHCQualify.com, earning what would have been his fourth NHC qualification.
