WOWWWW! What a great time, and what a great result. I hope you all enjoyed yourselves as much as I did. Thanks to everyone who attended and helped out with our fundraiser. Including Raffle Tickets, a few donations, and all of the entry fees, rebuys, etc, we raised more money than ever before... Over $2000!!!

A quick thank you to our volunteer dealers (Sally, Georganne, Jen, and Dana) and food runners. Thanks also to our great sponsors, keeping everyone well fed.

Thanks also to HOWARD ENTERTAINMENT for supplying us with Tables and Chips. And thanks also to Rob, from Poker Table Envy for supplying that awesome poker table for the raffle grand prize.

Tournament Highlights and Results

The tournament started with 35 players spread over 5 tables at 12pm, and ended with only 1 player left at 7:55pm.

Table 1

Table 2

Table 3

We had a lot of returning players and some first timers...everyone did a pretty good job holding their own for the first few rounds.

Table 4

Table 5

We played a lot of poker, but eventually the cream rose to the top, and we had a final table, and for the first time, the ladies were represented. We also had two previous champions, and two more final table veterans.

Final Table

Chips were flying at the final table, and some big hands came and went. When the dust cleared, our reigning champion finished fourth. Two new players finished second and third, and our new champion, previously the 2005 runner up, took home the trophy. Congratulations to our top finishers, and champion!

4th Place Howard Walsh
3rd Place Russell Shifflett
