Jul-Sept 2016

This was Youngstown Poker's first quarterly tournament.  We had 6 players attend the $50,000 guaranteed $500 buy-in tournament at the JACK Casino.  Mike Vasvari, Terry Lunder, and Tom Bacon were at the top of the points standings and won their vouchers for the JACK tournament entry.  Gloria Lambert, Bruce Waller, and Keir Joy won their seats by attending tournaments and collecting tickets for the quarterly drawing.  Although all three were luck, Keir Joy only attended one Youngstown Poker tournament and had only 7 tickets in the drawing!!!

 

We're proud of all 6 players!!! Before the drive up to Cleveland, everyone agreed to keep half of the amount that they won and divide the other half between the other 5.  All players made it at least half way through the 103 total entries.

 

We were hoping all 6 players would make it into the cash.  Unfortunately, 4 players were knocked out late in the tournament.  Gloria played very well for 1st big buy-in tourney.  Keir is a seasoned player that cut back play with the start of his family and played great.  Mike played super and has placed in many casino events.  Terry was situated well and down to the final 3 tables when she busted out.

 

Tom and Bruce made it to the final 2 tables.  It was a grind with big ups and downs for both players.  Tom suggested a chop when they were down to 12 players.  Each player would have received $4,166.  The chip leader declined the offer.  Play went on with Tom busting out in 12th place.  He was low chip stack and decided to make a move with K-J.  The other player had A-K and knocked him out.  Bruce played great and went out a few spots later in 8th.  He managed his chips well and some "Professor" style moves.  Tom won $1,025 and Bruce won $1,800.

 

What a wild ride.  We had a first time player, long time players, and a bunch of movement in the final tournament to lock up seats.  In the end, it shows that it is a great structure to give away the seats.  You can win with skill by making final table appearances or you can show up every once in a while and win a seat.

 

Great representation of Youngstown and they proved that we can play with the best of them!
