Results from July 6th
Well, dang it, the results are in. And I didn't win. Son of a Mitch. Literally. Mitch (I didn't have to rebuy this time) took home the hardware and cash. Though not literally, since we didn't have the winners trophy. Hats off the ladies again, as Rebecca Barnes and firs time player (yeah right) Darla Burke carried the action and most of our chips all night. But it came down to heads up action between Mitch and Rebecca, who had a hefty chip lead.
But the tide turned when Mitch flopped trip kings, and was able to close it out.
Thanks again to the Burkes. No, not just Darla for beating me with that King on the river, but to Tom and Darla for hosting the game and cooking up the delicious food. We had a fantastic time and those who went our early were even able to enjoy the pool. The dates for the next 2 Hold 'em nights are set: August 3rd, 6pm at Phil Rodriguez, and August 24th, at the Burkes again. We're trying to get a an unsanctioned game together for next week, so stay tuned for that.
In other news, Sean Denton pulled of the rare feat of winning the Horse's ass and going out in 6th place with his re-buy.
