Here I am in the ALS No Limit Texas Hold’em Tournament, March 30, 2008 held in Waltham, MA.
The tournament was sponsored by Syrinx Consulting Corporation, run by Boston Charity Poker, and raised over $25,000. [More about the charity Texas Hold’em tournament. ]
After the tournament, I was interviewed for a local media website (boston.tv) that was capturing video of the event.
I had busted out of the tournament, and the interviewer was asking why I was walking out with such a big smile. I said, “Well, I got to play. I lasted a long time. I contributed to a charity. I’m ecstatic!”
2008 World Series of Poker Tournament 3rd place finalist Dennis Phillips got it right…You gotta love this game!
Stats: Placed 47 in field of 120. Top 39%.
Notes: Didn’t get very good cards. Met some nice people. Felt like a goof ball, but, I did it.
