Still trying to find one to get to!
I probably won't make it. I have a talk to do early the next morning.
I'll be out of town, hopefully next month...

Tonight Rod Samuelson took first place for the first time. Joe Haynes, a first-time player, took second. Jeff Salazar took third, while Larry Knight finished yet again in the money, taking fourth place.
Rod was destined to win tonight's tournament - he held pocket aces four times.
The comeback story of the night was Joe. He was down to his last 15 chips and was blinded all-in. He had poor cards, but a river 7 hit his inside straight draw. He tripled- or quaded-up on that hand, and powered on to a second place finish.
The tournament ended when Joe caught Rod bluffing at the pot when a ho-hum flop appeared. Joe called Rod's all-in move, and revealed better garbage than Rod had. But a came on the river to pair Rod's pocket , and hand the victory to Rod.
