September Bounty Tournament

Everyone has been so happy with the bounty tournament that the Red, White, and Blue Poker League has decided to continue the bounty tournaments for every Wednesday in September. That means there is a $50 bounty on Robert's head each week for the Wednesday game. Mondays will continue to be non bounty days.

Texas Hold'em poker tournaments are played each week on Mondays and Wednesdays at Addy's in Manassas, Virginia at 7:00 and 9:30. Knock Robert out of the tourney on Wednesday and along with his last chips get $50 cash.

This past week Robert went all in five times and survived four of the all-ins. On the fifth all-in Faith called him and she beat his pair with a straight. Typically Robert survives 85% of all all-in calls and wins first place in 40% of the tournaments.

Come join us for the fun!

Bounty Tournament

Last night at Addy's we had our first Bounty Tournament. Robert played in the tournament and there was a $50 bounty on him in addition to the regular first and second place prizes. This means that for the person who knocked Robert out of the tournament they got $50 cash.

Robert was moved from table to table during the game so that everyone had a chance to sit with him. Starting with 4,000 in chips, at one point Robert got down to 600 in chips and then built his chip stack back up.

Robert's final hand he went all in with pocket Kings against a 7-10 suited. A seven came out on the flop giving Matt a pair of sevens. Then another seven on the turn giving Matt a set and knocking Robert out of the tournament.

We'll have another bounty tournament next Wednesday at Addy's in Manassass.

Alzheimer Memory Walk

The Alzheimer Memory Walk is coming up. This is a good charity and is supported by Harrah's Foundation (the WSOP people). Harrah's Foundation will be matching all donations up to a total of one million dollars.

I've created a Memory Walk donation page on the official website. Your donation can be entered on the web directly and I never have to mess with it. I set a goal of $500. I'm curious about how civic minded we are.

Please take a look, and please give.
