Congratulations to Robert Irvin our New Main Event Champion!

Robert dominated the Final Table elimating each of the other 8 players at the table. The most dramatic hand was when Robert went ALL-In with Queen-10 and Defending Champion Sid Williams had pocket kings in the Big Blind. Robert made a full house with his 10 and knocked out Sid Williams in 8th place and took a dominant chip lead which he never gave up. Lester finished in 2nd place improving from his 3rd place finish last season and Dona Foreman finished in 3rd place this season.

Robert will be carrying his Trophy and Traveling Belt with Pride!!


1st Place was $1000 and 11th thru 18th all won $50!!
