We'll have complete results from Event 1 later today.
Congrats to Ron Lane who beat Prissy Giroir heads up in the Opener. Ron took home $11250 and played excellent through out the event. One of us GCPers shared a table with him all day on Day 1. He found a bag and caused problems for everybody at the table. Made some great reads and definitely deserved the title.
Prissy it should be noted accomplished a rare feat in that she somehow made a final table FOUR times in one tournament. She was the only player to bag twice (winning an added Poker Gras Main Event seat in the process) and she also bubbled bagging the third flight when her pocket Aces got run down by Steve Bierman's pocket Queens on the river.
In Event 2, called the Game of the Century by somebody, Jason Regas won the title beating Derek Ridley heads up and finding good fortune with K9 more than once at the final table. David Fry finished third with Charlie Gelvin the bubble boy. I think on that particular day, Charlie is just fine with the way everything went, after leading the poker room in LSU cheers during a fairly important football game.
