Michael Williams

We closed out the weekend with a Pinktober Poker Open $200 Bankroll Builder Sunday afternoon; poker and football and big money. The tournament drew 164 entries and Michael Williams took the top prize after a six-way deal at the final table saw him earn $6,863.

The tournament doubled its $10,000 guarantee and then some, creating a prize pool worth $26,240. The last 17 spots paid out and they burst the bubble in an interesting manner. Still three away from the money, we lost a player at each of the last three tables at the exact same time so no hand-for-hand was needed.

Once the final table was reached, they lost three players before the last six decided to divide up the remaining prize money with Williams taking the biggest piece. Eric Fields, Jay Giles, Ruben Torres, Chanthy Phoutsakanh, and Wally Maddah were all part of the deal.

Congrats to Michael and great job by our players for such a great final Sunday of the series.
