Sunday February 16th the Windy City Poker Tour was back at Durbins in Tinley Park. A full Sunday of poker was in store hosted by Southwest Community Services. The noon deep stack ran with 54 entries and a prize pool valued at $2,180.
The top 6 would finish in the money with Mark Wagner taking home first place valued at $810* which included a $100 seat to our May Championship Event. Second place went to Ken Taylor taking home $555* for second place which also included a seat to our May Championship Event.
Because we are all about high value for you the player at these events, the hosting charity gave away a High Hand promotion of a 32" Toshiba HDTV valued at $300. Early in the promotion Michael Sabbia and James Snyder both shared A-Q off suit on a board that read K-K-4-K-A. Both players held the High Hand with Kings full of Aces. Not too long after that Josh Dandurand held an Ace in his hand while the board ran out K-K-7-K-K, giving him Quad Kings with an Ace; the new high hand of the night! It would hold strong the rest of the evening and Josh would take home a bonus prize just for participating in our event! Congratulations Josh!
