Sample Hold'em Tournament - June 16 @ 7:00 PM
The poker tournament is this Friday, the 16th. I'll be firing up the grill at 7:00, but come as early as 6:30 if you'd like. The tournament itself won't start until 8:00.

I'll be providing burgers and sausages and the associated fixings. If your appetite is less carnivorous or more sophisticated, you'll have to hit the local market yourself.

We had a full house tonight of 22 players. We got a bit of a late start at 8:30, but the BBQ ahead of time went well. A little sunshine and burgers never hurt anyone.

Brian Grayson won the tournament over Ernie "Traffic Jam" Smith. Brian had quad-4s early on which helped give him an early chip lead. Ernie was also a bully at the main table. It was destined that the two would be heads up at the end.

Larry Knight tried to three-peat, but "only" finished in 3rd place.

Don Jones was short-stacked coming to the final table and was immediately the big blind, but was able to quickly double up and hold on for 4th place.
