Our 2022 Pokerdawg season is complete. Debbie Wheeler is our 2022 champion. Laura Harmon was second and Jeanne Ferguson was third. 

We had 35 players competing for the championship bracelet. As long as Derby Lane keeps 9 players at the table, we will officially add two additional wild card positions to the tournament.

John McCarthy won the 50/50 and donated $100 back to charity. Besides winning the tournament, Debbie Wheeler also won a gift card with a jack high straight flush. Deb Rogers also won a gift card with four aces. Debbie donated back to charity, where Jeanne donated half of her winnings back to charity.

Thanks to all for supporting Pokerdawgs. We raised approximately $6,000 in 2022. Approximately half of that went to Special Olympics. The remaining went to the prize pool for the championship event, American Cancer Society, and Fund Razors for credit card and accounting fees.

Our 2023 season starts next month, Saturday, February 4th. We will again start at 5:30p.m. All 32 spots for the championship event are open. Hope to see you there.

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:   February 04, April 01, June 03, August 05, October 07, and December 2nd.  The Tournament of Champions event will be Saturday, January 6th, 2024.
