On Sunday, Feb. 5, there was a fun poker tournament at Wells Gray Inn. Over 20 players took part in the playing of cards for many small prizes donated by the hotel.

Top tournament players were: 1, Norm McFadyen; 2, Goldie Krawec; 3, Kevin Sauer; 4, Chris Moore; 5, Robin Torpes.

This is the fourth year of having a poker tournament on America’s Football Sunday.

The players were very excited at various times during the game, especially when the winning hand of the day was a KKKAA, followed by KKK 10,10 and 66677.

Chip fortunes were made and lost by the turn of the next card. You might start out with a picture pocket pair and get beat by a flush.

Regular tournament play is held each Wednesday evening at the Wells Gray Inn, with a tournament at the end of each three-month period. Players collect points each time they play depending on where they finish each evening. The top nine players play for prizes at the end of each season.


We are midway through Season 21. The next tournament will be held on March 29.
