Congratulations to Laura Harmon for winning December’s event. Laura, Jon Barrera, and Donna Gem, were final three and decided to split the prize pool and based on most chips, the results are listed. Kyle Massey won the 50/50 for $170 and donated $50 back to charity. We had 29 players, with four rebuying. 

For the second tournament in a row, no one had quads or better.   

The Final list of players for the Championship Tournament, Saturday, January 6th, is listed above. I will be emailing everyone separately, to confirm their attendance. Please let me know as soon as possible if you can attend. Those that don’t confirm by December 29, will lose their seat in the Championship event. The fee to play in January is $25. That covers the Derby Lane fees and food. You will receive another 3,500 chips to the number earned throughout the year. You can pay online under the donation button, or pay me at the poker room. There is no need to go to the window this time because I will be handing out the seat assignments. The prize money will come out of the charity funds collected throughout the year. We will have a 50/50 to help recover the prize money, but we will not have any additional add-ons or rebuys. There will be no contests at this event, other than the 50/50. No high hands, doorprizes, etc. Once a player gets knocked out, they will be done for the tournament. 

Our first 2024 event will be Saturday, February 03, 2024. The event will again start at 5:30p.m.. As always, please let me know if you plan to attend or register online. Registration fees for the regular tournaments, will stay at $85 per player.   

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. 

2024 Events:   February 03, April 06, June 01, (dinner buffet included), August 03, October 05 and December 7th.  The Tournament of Champions event will be Saturday, January 11th, 2025.
