Congratulations to Craig Roberts for winning August’s tournament. John Heathcote came in second and John McCarthy came in third. All three had similar chip stacks and decided to chop the cash prize and play for positioning for the championship event. All three received $350 each. Thank you, Craig for donating all your winnings back to charity. Craig has always donated everything back to charity. John Heathcote gave $75 back to charity, which was also deeply appreciated. Debra Matula came in fourth and Sebastian Meyer finished fifth. All five top finishers automatically qualified for the championship event in January.
We had 28 players for this event, justifying the four tables needed. Many of our regulars were out of town. Martin Shapiro won the 50/50 for two events in a row. He won $195. He donated $95 back to the charity. Thanks Martin.
Deb and Ken Rogers, along with Gay Romine and Martin Shapiro also won $25 gift cards for door prizes. Josh Bowles won a $25 gift card for four jacks.
Thank you for your patience with some minor changes. The first four players to receive quads or better will receive a $25 gift card. That applies to the end of the tournament. Anyone getting a royal flush will receive $100 cash.
Derby Lane apparently had our tournament on their website and we had two new players register from that. I want to welcome Brad Jungemann and Ray Burrows to Pokerdawgs.
We will only have the pre-event add-ons in June and December. It will be $25 for 5,000 chips. That will only be available when we do the complimentary buffet upstairs prior to the tournament. The buffet will be at 4:30pm, with the tournament beginning around 5:30pm.
Every 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.
Our next event is October 1st. We will begin poker at 5:30 p.m. Remember, I need a 10-day notice to ensure I have enough dealers to handle each event. Either register online or send me an email to let me know you plan to attend.
2022 Events: October 1st, December 3rd. The Tournament of Champions event will be Saturday, January 7th, 2023.
