Congratulations to Murray Burling on wnning the
2012 Club Texas  Hold'Em Poker Champs.

Muzza drew even with Sean Kelly, but took
the trophy, being the last Club member standing . . . .

There were 16 players for the much smaller than usual number of entries for the 2012 Club Poker Champs
with 10 club players and 6 non club members. After the rounds of rebuys was completed the field narrowed
down to a final table of 8 with the veteran Wayne “what the hell “ Vercoe finishing 3rd leaving Muzza “all in “
Burling and Sean “on the river”Kelly heads up as time was getting on the final two decided to split the pot
leaving Muzza with the trophy as the leading Redsox member.
Both players went home with $230 each and a good night was had by all.

Current champ Dave “Show me the money “ Fulton was very unlucky as all players ganged up on him and
received many bad beats on the night but still managed to finish 6th. Other placinmsg were:
8th Sean Lynch
7th Thomas Lovejoy
6th Dave Fulton
5th Harry Hamilton
4th Adam Rose “Bubble Boy’
3rd Wayne Vercoe
1st equal Muzza Burling and Sean Kelly
