    Jake from Corsair wins!

    Thanks everyone who played and took part in this event, it was a good turnout and lots of fun for everyone.

    A big thanks to the sponsors for coming together to make this happen, looking forward to next year. I took notes on what to improve and to better promote the event during CES.

    Cheers

    What a night!!! Charles had a winner that i wouldn't have missed for love or money.
    Great hosts at Caesars. Excellent bunch of people turned out. Just couldn't have asked for better in any way.
    Now I haven't touched a deck of cards in 30 years but I figured what the hell, it's like riding a bike and I occasionally watch the poker tourrnaments
    so I'm not a total n00b to this.
    Started out trying to get my feet under me and remember the right mindset and it all came back.
    We each started with $3000.00 in chips..About the 4th hand when the blinds were $25 and $50 I drop a $1000.00 chip on the board after the flop and they all drop out.
    I figure they aren't ready yet for heavy numbers so I pull this again all on crap hands another 3 times and then the first hour is up and we switch tables.
    Same at table number 2 for the next hour and I'm flying with app $20,000 in chips.
    Then we're down from the orginal 100 + players to maybe 30 and I'm at the third table.
    Two hands in my good buddy Jake sitting next to me opens with a $2300 bet.
    I'm dealt a pair of queens so I figure this is the time to step it up and I match his $2300 and raise him $2300 for $4600..Everyone else folds and then Jake goes all in.
    I say lets dance and follow him in.
    First card flopped is another queen and life is looking good.
    Next 3 cards are three hearts and what is my good buddy jake sitting on?
    Yup, two hearts. His all in bet of over $17,000 in chips was on two crap hearts.
    BIG COJONES!
    I congratulated him and left the table.
    OOPS, forgot to mention that earlier I'd knocked out Tom Peterson of nVidia and was handed two PNY GTX 570 cards.
    My thanks to Tom. I will put them to good use.
    I went for the experience and wasn't let down.
    My congratulations to Jake. He played well all night long and deserved this win.
    To Charles, all the sponsors and to Caesar's staff I send my heartfelt Thanks.
    It was and will be a night I will never forget.
    I have some pics but forgot to bring my adapter for my SDHC card, will up when I get home sat night..

    I should amend this. There was one disappointment.
    For a week I'd been looking forward to sitting down beside Francois so much that I had a "fix" in to make sure we'd be at the same table.
    We have a good friendly back and forth here and really wanted to get on him but he was called away at the last minute.
    Next year pal and no excuses ok?

    Jake won a lot of prizes, including the tournament, but gave (almost) all of them away.
