Our first 2023 tournament is complete. Congrats to Ken Roger’s son-in-law, Scott Herrygers, visiting from Michigan. He captured first place. Fred Martini was second place, with Alan Wallack coming in third.

Martin updated the website, so hopefully it will provide less confusion on the “add-ons”. With the re-buys and add-ons, we raised over $1,500 for charities. Thanks Scott and Fred for donating some of your winnings back to charity. 

Josh Bolles won $180 from the 50/50. Doug Grove, Victor McGregor, and Tom Dudley won $25 gift cards from door prizes.

Laura Harmon had quad jacks, Kelly Bickford had quad sevens and Fred Martini had quad queens. All received $25 gift cards. 

Welcome back Mark Schreiber and first time Pokerdawg players, David Verdmann and winner Scott Harrygers.

Our next event is Saturday, April 01, 2023. We do start at 5:30pm. Derby Lane has been better getting us dealers at 5:30pm. 

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:   April 01, June 03, August 05, October 07, and December 2nd.  The Tournament of Champions event will be Saturday, January 6th, 2024.
