Ho Ho update

The ME was a $500 buy in with a 200k guarantee. I don’t think they made the 400 players needed.Hard to say as info from this tournie is scarce as TD Greg is doing everything from payouts to policing the food servers!

The winner will receive $68k. A ten way deal was discussed where tenth would have received $7.2k instead of $2.7k but Massoud Eskandari refused after letting that man Greg do all the math.Then, Karma chameleon, Massoud is out and lets play ” Lets make a deal”.

The ten are in seat order:

1) Rick Munro
2) Tho Vinh Nguyen
3) George Yutuc
4) Louis Laxineta
5) Ab Salim
6) David Wirtz
7) Paul Herrick
8) Khammy Lim
9) Albertin Hernandez

420 played the 7pm player appreciation event. Allen Kim was the winner taking home $9730 for his $60 buy in.

The Dream Team reverts to 7pm onĀ  Monday.


It appears the $50k guarantee missed. The finalists returned, well some chose to go to work instead, to play for a first place of just over $14k which suggests a pool of $43k. Hopefully Greg will have more luck with his “Weekend $100k guarantee” in January. Players can enter for $120 at Noon on Friday, Saturday AND Sunday and 7pm Friday and Saturday. The finals are on Sunday at 7pm.

With eight players left today Walid Abirafeh had the lead with 2.3m chips. Hoping to at least finish second are : Todd Iger,Vinh Duong. Moshe Golani, Jay Sands, Melbert Tato, Donald Walters and Juske. Assi Luskey was ninth.

1) Vinh Duong
2) Don Walters
3) Walid Abirafeh
