Playground Poker Grand Opening a Great Success


Playground Poker Table Grand OpeningPlayground Poker’s official grand opening turned out to be a smashing success. With Friday night ending in the early hours of Saturday morning, 237 players certainly got their money’s worth – the free buy-in was a popular attraction and the first place winner brought home a respectable $3,810 of the total prizepool of $12,680.

The players certainly seemed to be enjoying themselves with 236 opting to put up $50 of their own cash to rebuy. We were also happy to see some familiar faces in the field – namely local Eric Cajelais, Benjamin Leblond and Marc Karam and Full Tilt pro Michael “Timex” McDonald. ACETENBOMBER was sitting at the felts too and made it deep but busted on a bad beat.
