A $200 buy-in bought an evening of poker at Mario's, 1513 6th Avenue, in downtown Seattle. Josh Brown from the Seahawks helped auction off one of his kicking shoes and other great items. Tori's Tilters were there trying to play a little better than last year. Carol couldn't make it to the tourney, so wife-for-a-night Connie Blumen filled the drinking position on the team.
The team's poker performance was much improved this year - I finished 4th at my table and knocked out a player. An ace on the river ended my tournament run, giving KISW'sDouble R three-of-a-kind over my two pair. I don't take as many photos at an event like this since I'm not moving around, but I hope I captured the flavor of the event. It's never too early to get ready for the big CF tourney on February 10th at Qwest Field!
