Wow! Season 6 of the Wells Gray Inn Poker Club had an exciting ending. Final results for the season were: Kerry Miller winning the season with 5,000 points, followed closely by Millie Rempel, Laurie Marsh, Chris Miller and Goldie Krawec, in fifth place, with 4,100 points — only 900 points between first place and fifth place players.
These players were followed closely by Matt Dobson, Dan Struthers, and Jeff Kuhn. Winning the Wild Card position was Fred Roach, who attained this position on the last night of play by being highest ranking player of the evening who had not placed in previous competition.
The final tournament of Season 6 was held July 3. Players drew their table position cards and play commenced. Players used their own strategy to try and outsmart their opponents who they may not have played with much within the regular playing season.
The final winner of the tournament was Laurie Marsh, followed closely by Jeff Kuhn and Chris Miller.
This past season over 30 players participated in the weekly competition. Many people come to compete, some just to meet new people, some for the fierce competition they feel and some just to learn the game.
The games are held each Wednesday evening at the Wells Gray Inn starting at 7 p.m. sharp. New players need to register before playing.
