Earthquake + Easter hit the Bike

The chandeliars were swaying in the Events center of the Bike today. Last Sunday I was in Rincon which is a two hour drive closer to the epicenter of the quake. The play in todays final of the $150k guarantee took an unscheduled break to allow the nervous a smoke break.

Only sixty showed up on time for the 5pmĀ  Bounty tournament.Whether it was the Earthquake or Easter I am uncertain. The local tournament players have not had a break all year but the Bike tournaments are affordable and the Events Centre is a nice quiet room with parking outside of the door. The schedule even includes a Chinese Poker tournament on Tuesday and Mexican on Thursday.

Bell Gardens most famous resident,Men Nguyen, played today but was eliminated,in 21st.

The winner, assuming no deals, will take home $44k.
