That’s a wrap

Results for season 28 of Wells Gray Poker Club

By Goldie Krawec

Another season has finished at the Wells Gray Poker Club. We had 33 different players during this season from Oct. 1 to Dec. 19. Many of them only played for a week or two, during their visits to Clearwater or for an evening outing. Many never missed a week of play.

After 11 weeks of play points winners for Season 28 include Terri Searls, who came in first place with 5550; second was Chrysta Deaton 5425; third was Laurie Marsh 5300; fourth was Crystal Hanson 5175; fifth was Carol Fraser 4525.

In sixth place was Jack Searls 3950; in seventh was Shirly Wheelhouse 3700; in eighth Fred Roach 3550 and in ninth Mike Handford 3500.

The alternate player was Cody Hodges in place of a missing player.

Best hands for the season were four of a kind (quads) KKKK, and quad 8888s twice, then several full house hands were next in line: AAAQQ, AAA77, KKKAA, KKK10,10; KKK99; KKK44; QQQ66; 888QQ.

Winners of the Poker Tournament are: first place Cody Hodges; second place Jack Searls; third place Shirly Wheelhouse. Best hand of the tournament table was KKKAA.

Best hand at the fun table was quad 10s. Some of the top three players had never placed in a tournament before. So folks, there is always a chance to pick up a trophy even if you are the underdog most of the season.

Some evenings of play consisted of up to 23 players, which means we have three tables of players at one time. It takes a lot of serious playing to get to the final table of nine players on those evenings.

Season 29 will started on Jan. 2 at the Wells Gray Inn. Everyone welcome to join in. We love it when internet players join us and cannot control the expressions on their faces.
