LUKE HANLON'S ALL-TOURNAMENT TEAM

Now that the 2018 Vegas National Tournament has officially wrapped up, and I have my bearings back after four nights in Las Vegas, it’s time to reveal the All-Tournament Team.

In my three years at the tournament, this year's selection process was the toughest. There were roughly a dozen deserving players which makes this team truly the best of the best.
