POKER GRAS RECAP:

PELEGRIN DRIPS IN SWAG:

Daniel Pelegrin (pictured l) of Georgia matched Charles Brady's 1st and 2nd place finishes in the Poker Gras series by winning the Swag Event after an icm chop. Alan Leffel, Matt White and Robert Pierce (with yet another cash), also divvied up the loot. Chad Melerine and Jason "J-Bird" Bergeron cashed before the chop.

SURVIVOR AND 1:

Linda Keenan, Birol Lermi and Daniel Fagan survived the field to earn a piece of the 10% prize. The two short stacks split the other share giving Nick Young and Edward Copain a return on their buy-in.

GRAPHIA FREEZEOUT KING:

Nick Graphia (pictured r) overcame a large chip disadvantage to win the title vs. Russell Koch. Graphia won over 20k for first with Koch taking over 12k for second. Matt White finished third with Teddy Conner (4th), Kevin Oakes (5th) and Randy Gordon (6th) also in the money.

Bert Hammant made the heads up deal that gave Charles the trophy. Dan Fagan, cashed again in third. Dilsad Meraler was the last woman standing finishing 4th. Wild Bill Phillips, Chris Read, Ronnie Blanchard, and Ian Yergeau also cashed.
POKER GRAS RECAP:

BULLDOG BRADY BULLDOZES THE FIELD:


Event One of Poker Gras came down to Charles "Bulldog" Brady pipping Nick Rodrique for the 30k up top. Brady quietly hid in the background until he sprung up for a late run. The event featured 547 players making the prize pool over 130k.

Nick Rodrique winning 19k for second was one of many locals who dominated the field. Frank Bocage, 13k for third; Alex Wood, 10k for fourth; JP Kolb, 7.4k for fifth; and Chris Dupuy, 5.6k for sixth, were part of a final table that all had short commutes from South Louisiana to their day two stacks.

Robert Dinger, 7th, Curtis Terry, 8th, and Myles Terry, 9th, also hailed from Louisiana.

Familiar names like Robert Pierce, Rebekah Crosby, Hiep Doan, Kevin Oakes, Jaymie Virtusio, Nekoda Foster, Corey Harrison, Chris Sumrall, Victor Holcombe, Brandon Gill, Teddy Conner, Todd Skinner, Clinton Boynes, and PJ Horrigan were a part of the 56 players that cashed

LUJANO ROOKIE CHAMP:

Bryan Lujano won the top prize after the final ten players in the Rookies event chopped. His big stack earned him $2,174 while the other nine all added $1700 to their Hendon Mob totals. Those nine: Frederick Miller, Zachary Hogan, Travis Lusby, Robert Lasws, Long Nguyen, Alec Tull, Matthew Thomas, Brandon Adams, and Raymond Glasser.
Also cashing: Rock Grundmann, Dom Carollo, Richard Lienhop, Quinn Frenzel and Christian Robbins. This was the second biggest Rookies event ever hosted by GCP (the creators of the Rookies event) and if not for a lack of space it wouldn't have set the record.

LEBLANC AGAIN:

Our ladies champion Judy Leblanc from our recent Pearl River event got first place in the Turbo event after an even chop. Familiar ground for her with fellow ladies Marilyn Charmaine and Davon Hayes also chopping with bigger stacks. Houth Houn, Kenneth Pickering and Shannon Collongues also in the split.

ONE FOR FRANCE:

Theo Verut's second Poker Gras cash was the best one finishing first in the Deep Stack. Steven Daigle, Prissy Giroir, Edward Staples, Mohammad Dastoori, and Jonathan Wisbey also made the money.

AZEMAR BEST IN OVER 40:

Louis Azemar of Lafayette, LA won the Over 40 tournament. Daniel Pelegrin of Georgia had to settle for second place--this time. Ryan Sutherland, Captain Ronnie Hope, Henry "Skip" Gill, Peter Konolige, Christopher Hudson, South African Sunil Devachander, and Trent Marcelle complete the final table. Andrew Becker, Barton Tullier and Hiep Doan also made the money.
