I really don't care much for Amateur Poker Tour and all their shenanigans. I believe they are under new ownership going by Poker Starz of Denver. But my good old dad took down their mini tournament last Friday night. My parents play a lot of bar tournaments and I told them about this mini kick off tournament that Golden Bowl was having and giving away a first place cash prize of $175 so they went down there. I wasn't there (can barley stand bar poker) but my mom told me that he made the final table and was short stacked going heads up. He doubled up a few times to make them about even with which a deal was offered. They accepted the chop of first and second prize for $125 each. Good thing the prize money was being paid by Golden Bowl and not APT.

What do you know, the old man has still has a few tricks up his sleeve. Below is a link to the images of this tournament. My dad is the one in the top left photo wearing the googy hat.

Yeah, he chopped with him (Mike). After a while it always seems like the same bar group of people, especially when a cash prize is being offered. lol What a goofball my dad is! Razz

BTW, my mom is in a picture too, fourth down on the left. Can you guess which one? lol

I recognize a few people I've played against before. It's true that most of the bar poker people are the same ol' revolving crowd, always chasing the tourneys across town. Very Happy

Congrats to your dad.

Thanks all for the congrats to dad. I will relay this information to him.

As far as the money goes... in typical degenerate fashion he blew it all over the weekend in some slot machines. poker = good, slot = bad

You know, there *are* those folk who are a lot more +EV when playing slots than when playing poker.

I wish more of them would sit at my tables. Laughing
