Poker Night

05 May 2010, by Brian in Uncategorized

They came to watch Mayweather vs. Mosley. They came to play poker, foosball and pong. And they came to raise money for Baatar Hero!  Huge thanks goes out to our friends – Rob for hosting, and to Megan for organizing… they pulled together a fantastic group of players and spectators for our Texas Hold ‘Em tournament.  Thanks also to all our friends who showed up to play and kept the tournament on track.

Thanks for hosting Rob!

With luck I played well enough to make it to the final table with high hopes of taking the whole pot down to go towards our rally cars.  I couldn’t quite hold on though, and was the first elimination from that final table.  I was taken out by Austin the Eliminator, who proceeded to confound and then beat each successive player. 

Nice poker face Austin, you've got us all beat

It was a sight to behold as he took down nearly every hand. The final heads up saw Austin take all of the chips and the tournament top prize. Austin and top finisher Michael pleasantly surprised us when they  generously donated their tournament winnings to Baatar Hero!

Along with all the other generous donations throughout the night we are now ready to purchase our rally cars.  Thank you to everybody who came out and showed their support!
