Season 3, 2023 Main Event Results

We opened the Main Event announcing the JPA HALL OF FAME. Thaddeus Mayers was our first Hall of Fame inductee into the JPA Hall of Fame and Lester Wills, a local player of the JPA Beach area, was the second player/TD inducted. We will induct a new player at each Main Event moving forward and their induction will be based on longevity, achievement and sportsmanship. There are many players deserving of this honor and we are looking forward to announcing a new inductee each season for the foreseeable future.

The Main Event was 50 players strong and we had a local newer player, Erik Martinez, win $1,000 in our first "Beaches" Main Event!! Erik was an unstoppable force at the Final Table. The rest of the Final Table was full of potential future Hall of Fame players. Jan Hickey won $500 in 2nd place and CJ Roy finished in 3rd place. Leilani Newton, who starting this season will be running JPA operations along with the help of Pam Soliz, finished in 4th place winning $200. Frank Hall, Lester Wills, Bill Sandiford and Ed Browning ALL win $100 making Final Table finishing in 5th to 8th respectively. The following players win $50 finishing 9th to 18th: Tylin Bedell, Jim Naylor, Mike Musson, Dennis Abromavage, Diane Russell, Barbara Wegznek, Debbie Head, Melissa Mathis, Heather Azato, and Diane Battaglia.
