Hello Players. Congratulations to Rick Paul, for winning our August’s tournament. Kyle Massey was second and Alex Gem, came in third. Thanks Kyle, for donating $50 back to charity. We had our fewest players ever, with 23 players making this event. However, we had plenty of food and had a great time.  

Rafael Serrano won 50/50, and Dave Romine donated some card protectors that he won from Vegas. With that, players that won door prizes, had a choice of either $25 gift cards or the card protectors. The following players won door prizes. Rafael Serrano, Rachel MacDonald, Alex Gem, Brian Carpenter, Ed Martin, and Donna Bordner. 

No one had quads or better.   

Our next event will be Saturday, October 07, 2023. We will offer a first break add-on only. Anyone bringing a first-time player, will receive a complimentary add-on. We should be able to start at 5:30 p.m.   

Every regular event will have a first break add-on for $20 and you will receive 5,000 chips. Every event will also allow a player to re-buy during the first hour for $50 to receive 10,000 chips. Remember, you must have at least one chip to qualify for the $20 first break add-on. However, if you want to forfeit your chips at the end of the first hour, you may do so and re-enter for $50 and 10,000 chips. You may then do an add-on for another $20 and 5,000 chips. 

2023 Events:   October 07, and December 2nd.  The Tournament of Champions event will be Saturday, January 6th, 2024.
