As many as 22 players attended an evening of play with over 32 players taking part during the 11-week season.
The Season 19 tournament was held Wednesday, June 25, with nine players taking part. Some of top eight players from the regular season were unable to attend and alternate players, next-in line, were chosen to fill the tournament table.
Play started slow and cautiously, and for over two hours no one pushed or decided to make a break for the big chips. Finally a short stack player made his move and was gone. The next four hands saw three more players bite the dust and then there only six left.Again play slowed down, and finally by 10:30 p.m. the game was over.
Rick Dee was the tournament winner for a second season in a row – both times having been an alternate player in the event. Second place went to Nathan Mikkelsen and third place winner was Fred Roach. None of the top eight players of the season won the tournament, which shows how lady lucky can be present at any time in a poker gameSeason play will begin again on Wednesday July 9 at 7 p.m. at the Wells Gray Inn.
