With the unfortunate passing of a fine home poker pioneer named Barry (nutN2Lewz) in 2017, the home poker community also lost a great resource, his baby, homepokertourney.org. Barry did great work and it is my hope to continue his legacy here.
All of the content you see here was created by Barry, and with the exception of removing some dead links, is exactly as he left it.
I mean no harm or copyright infringement.
I host this site to honor the great work that nutN2Lewz did.
If you are the family of Barry and wish for his work to be taken down, please contact me at homepokerinfo.com and I will remove it at your request.
