This past weekend we had 3 tournaments, 2 of them Double Tag Team events. The team of Eric Christl and Darren Kelsch took 1st in the Omaha and chopped 1st in the Hold-Em in Hope, ND. Garth Tesmar won the tournament is Walhalla, which had 35 entrants. MC Diop and Glenn Magner along with Josh Dahlstrom and Jason Dodd were the teams that took down the tournaments at the Knickerbocker on Sunday. Congratulations to all our winners this past weekend, good luck to all our players this weekend, and stay tuned to fmpoker.com and our Facebook page for updates on upcoming tournaments.
Grand Forks and Hillsboro were the locations of the two DPT tournaments this past weekend. On Saturday, the tournament started at Noon at TJ's Sports Bar and the $125 bounty tournament drew 55 entries. Kevin Leiser was able to take it down after doubling up through Matsimela Diop and then busting him on the next hand in 4th place. He then took down Mike Marek in 3rd before getting the better of Brian Briedenbach heads up when he rivered trips to Brian's flopped two pair. Most of the money went in on the river in that hand.
Reno's in Hillsboro was the location of the Sunday tournament. This $90 bounty tournament drew 69 entries. Andrea Lange was chip leader early until Paul Johnson doubled up through her with his AA vs Andrea's QQ for about a 250K (25% of the chips in play) chip pot with about 15 people remaining, leaving Andrea with just 8 BB after the hand. Andrea was able to come back and place 3rd. Rob Urbatsch though, ruled the final table. Going on a heater at the right time, he was able to win some huges pots and went to take 1st place, besting James Sweeney heads up. Aaron Johnson finished 4th, Mike Marek placed 9th, bubble boy, but making another final table and has now opened up an early lead for the First Half 2013 Leaderboard.
This coming weekend, 2 more tournaments. Southgate in Grand Forks on Saturday and Wahpeton Eagles on Sunday. Good Luck players!
Terry Giberson took down Enderlin against Steve Lund, second, while Ricki Kadlec beat Corey Schneider heads up in Cavalier for his 2nd win of the year. Congratulations to both winners. Unfortunately we didn't have a third winner due to the blizzard on Sunday that canceled the Cactus Jacks tournament. Even more unfortunate, the Cactus Jacks tournament cannot be rescheduled.
Upcoming this week is TJ's Sports Bar in Grand Forks ($140) and Reno's in Hillsboro ($100). Good luck to all players!
