The 12 Poker Brat Hats Go To…
After winning my 12th World Series of Poker bracelet, I wanted to give back to you all with a fun contest. I encouraged all of you to share your best poker moments for a chance to win one of 12 brand new hats from my Poker Brat line, and the response was incredible! There were a lot of great tales of poker conquests, but I had to narrow it down to 12 winners.
Without any further ado, the winners are…
• LMD1982, who walked away with $3,500 at their first live tournament.
• Katie Kelley, who put a stop to heckling with a winning hand.
• Shlem, who rode on a roller-coaster of emotions that ended with a tournament win.
• Some Guy, who was thankful to the “poker gods” for helping him win an online tournament.
• Vel, who was playing well enough to hold the entire poker room’s stock of $25 chips.
• Lolpiggy, who may not have won a lot of money, but learned the power of following instincts.
• tunsky107, who played his best hand against an opponent who was trying to bust him.
• Chad Kunz, who won close to $1,000 in a single day of Full Contact Poker playing.
• HOOCH21, who turned $120 into $700 after watching one of my DVDs.
• theharv19, who lost his poker hand but gained confidence.
• Anthony D, who beat his poker-playing friend for the first time.
• SturtSan, who won with a two pair during a blind hand.
