Congratulations to Sid Williams our new Main Event Champion!

    Frank "Coach" Hall was the early and dominant chip leader for most of the day, but he lost two huge hands to Rusty Dyer and Lester Wills and that eliminated him in 5th place. Congrats Coach. Kelly Salgado won a big hand and almost made a big final table run but ended up finishing in 6th. The rest of the final table was short stacked but they all won at least $100.

  Lester Wills and Rusty Dyer dominated the Final Table eliminating most of the players but it was Sid Williams who was unstoppable once they reached the Final 3. Sid eliminated Lester in third place and then won 10 of 11 hands against Rusty to take the Main Event Trophy and Traveling Belt.


The players decided to pay 18 spots instead of 10 spots, so 1st Place was $1000 instead of $1500 and 11th thru 18th all won $50!!

Players also voted on having a Team Event this season so we will have a team event in August. It will be very similar to the Team Events of the past and we are targeting the middle of July to track the most points and then have the event in the first week of August! We are tentatively looking at the week of July 17th to July 24th to track points and then the Top 24 during that period will be invited to a Team Event to be held on August 5th or 6th!!
Cya All then!
