Congratulations goes to Laura Harmon for winning our first 2021 tournament. Unfortunately, with the Superbowl being the next day, it required many of our law enforcement players to have other commitments. We only had 18 players. But way to go Tampa Bay Buccaneers. What a Superbowl!!!!!!

With only 18 players, the prize pool was limited to only two cash payoffs. The charity added some to increase the payouts. Thanks to the top three players, whom decided to chop the pot and also ended the game based on chip count. 

Barbara Munday had the high hand for two tournaments in a row. She won a $25 gift card with Aces full of Queens. Fred Martini won the 50/50 raffle of $190. He received $100 and gave $10 back.

I do want to mention at my table of six. Four players went all in. Gary Felice’s pockets aces held up against pocket kings, pockets queens and pocket sevens. Two of those player’s night ended with that hand.

We had seven players that were prepaid and that had to cancel, so I do expect a great turnout for our April 10th tournament.

Thanks to Rick Paul for bringing two new players to our game. Welcome Tom Murphy and John Acostas. I also want to welcome Rachel MacDonald to our group. Many of us know Rachel when we made bets on the dogs.

Because we have room for more players, new players are welcomed. We can have up to six tables of eight players each. So hopefully, we can expect 40+ players at our next event.

2021 Events:  April 10th, June 5th, August 7th, October 2nd, December 04th. The tournaments will begin at 5:00pm. The Tournament of Champions event will be Saturday, January 08, 2022.

If you have additional questions, feel free to contact Larry Timmer at 813-245-1582.
