The five finalists: Amber Dalton from San Antonio, Texas; Mark Caminong from Hollywood, CA; Michael Rose from Buffalo Grove, Illinois; Brennan Conley, from Monroeville, Pennsylvania; and Jared Sharp from Short Hills, New Jersey; fought their way to a Showdown in Las Vegas to face off against Daniel Negreanu at the final table.

"I was truly amazed by the quality mix of Texas Hold 'em players and genuine enthusiasm of STACKED fans from all over the country," said Negreanu. "It's great to see players showcasing their talent and using STACKED single player mode to sharpen and improve their skills."

"My favorite thing about playing STACKED is the realistic game playing by the AI," said Michael Rose, one of this year's eager participants. "Stacked is the best poker game available right now by far and is a great teaching tool for most inexperienced players who want to tighten up their game."

MTV STACKED TM Masters Tournaments are scheduled, live events where players can win Masters points depending on the buy-in, number of other players and, of course, how far they make it. The buy in amount for each level will reflect the level of skill for players who can enter - the higher the level, the greater the buy in amount. The lower level tournaments will be held more frequently than the higher level tournaments giving everyone a chance to play and build their bankrolls.

Top players were selected by earning placement on the leader board by accumulating Masters Points in official STACKED Masters Showdown Tournaments, and of that sample, five were selected to participate in the MTV STACKED TM Masters Finale.
