Brian Harmon also received a$25 gift card with his nines. 

Thank you players for your patience. The food came late, so we decided to start the tournament a little later than usual. 

Our next event will be our 16th Annual Tampa Police Charity Poker Tournament. It will Saturday, June 03, 2023. This event will include a dinner in the restaurant, upstairs. I hope to confirm a buffet in the next few days. Dinner is included in your entry fee of $85. It will be from 4:30-5:30pm, with the tournament starting around 5:45pm. We will also have an optional pre-event add-on available for $25 for 5,000 chips, to help supplement the food cost.  

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:   June 03, August 05, October 07, and December 2nd.  The Tournament of Champions event will be Saturday, January 6th, 2024.
