We were joined today by JIM MATSUMOTO. This was his first time playing in a tournament, and from where he finished the day, you can tell Jim is a seasoned cribbage player! Welcome Jim! Come back any time!
For two weeks in a row now, JIM RANSTROM has taken FIRST PLACE! Very impressive Jim!
STEVE WENNSTROM was back in the money, finishing in SECOND PLACE. But that wasn't good enough for Steve. Oh no! Steve also scored the one and ONLY 24-hand, got THE CHICKEN, and won both CHICKEN pots!
But most notable was HARLEY MIEDEMA, who finished in THIRD PLACE and earned his first GRASS ROOTS POINTS! Way to go Harley!
Nobody claimed the DIRECTOR'S AWARD, which requires a full house with sevens and aces, so that pot will be worth $15 next week.
And the RAGGEDY JULIA (6-7-8-A-A) also went unclaimed, so that pot starts out next week with $36!
A total of 12 players were entered for this October 17, 2009 tournament
p.s. As of now, Jim and Cindy and I are venturing over to play in the Regional Tournament in Puyallup tomorrow. We still have room for at least one more player. If you want to join us, just give me a call at (206) 930-1379. We will be catching the 7:10 am boat off the south end. And remember, you can earn Grass Roots Points at these events!
