March 1st the Windy City Poker Tour was at Ariel's Tinley Park helping out the Suburban Fellowship Club of Forest Park. The snowy Saturday offered 2 great touraments along with cash game action all day!
The noon deep stack featured 56 entries where the top 6 would finish in the money. Kevin Boskey took home first place valued at $820* which included a $100 seat to our May Championship Event. Second place went to David McDermott Jr. taking home $460. Kevin took the chip lead into heads up play against David Jr after a ridiculous elimination hand...
...the money went ALL-IN on the flop where Ken Szymczyk (Who held the High Hand for the noon event which awarded him a $100 May Championship Event Seat) flopped a set of 5's vs Kevin Boskey's flopped pair of Aces. The board ran out (Ace-Ace) Quad Aces for Kevin knocking Ken out in 3rd place ($280)...a "photo finish" worthy of social media posting!
The $1/$2 cash game(s) ran all day and night while the 6pm deep stack ran with John Castillo taking first for $380 and David Wexler taking first and second place for $200.
