Thanks to everyone who came out and played the Brunch for the Bayou charity poker tournament.
Two WCP regulars made the final two. Heads-up it was Steve "the Destroyer" Dalton against Sammy "Killer" Reid (pictured left and right, respectively, glare and all). Sammy was swinging a monster stack and captured the first prize: two tix to Vegas and entry into a WSOP Circuit event.
But here’s the best part…
Sammy called Chops at about 7:30am, about 5 hours before the event started. Sammy had just GOTTEN HOME from a night of boozing. Sammy (still drunk) asked Chops for a wake up call around 11.
So at 11, Chops called. Voicemail. Chops leaves a threatening message telling Sammy to get to the game. F-bombs were dropped. At 11:30, Chops called again. Chops leaves another threatening message. At about 11:50, Chops called again. Sammy awakes and in a none-to-happy-about-it tone says he’s up and on his way.
The last entrant to arrive, Sammy was the last to leave the table. Congrats to Sammy.
Also, as you noticed, CNN crews were at the event. Whenever we get word that the CNN "American Spirit" segment with our tournament will air, we’ll let you know. And a final special thanks to Bodog.com, the Tiltboys, Andrew Feldman at ESPN.com’s Poker Club, and Airtran for kicking in all of the great prizes.
