One for the Host

Your friendly host finally put a tournament in the bag. It took a see-saw heads-up battle with Don Jones, but after 3+ years of tournaments the deed is done.

In the final battle, Don and I slugged it out for over half and hour, with the chip lead changing hands 3 or 4 times, a dozen or more all-in moves, and surprisingly two hands that tied. In one case we both held a5, the other we had junk cards in the hole and both had to play the board.

In the end, my pocket 6s made trips, beating Don's kq which paired a k on the flop. Had a d appeared on the river, the hand would have resulted in the 3rd tie hand.

The final hand. 666 beats kk.
