John Holt: Me? Play Poker?
Okay, let’s start with the obvious: I’m not a card shark. Put me at the table, and you have a poker plebe you’re going to clean out, and fast! But when I was approached several years ago to help out with the annual Firehouse Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tourney, I was “all in!” (How’s that for bluffing with a poker term-LOL). All in, because it benefits The Fox 4 Love Fund for Children.
My role: show up and welcome and meet and greet and just have fun. Boy, that’s heavy lifting. Well this year, I’ve been asked to be the honorary chair of the event, and once again I’m “all in!” Not at the table, but at the registration.
I’m looking forward to seeing real card sharks show up to play poker, win prizes, and perhaps even take home the top prize of a Plasma HDTV! Karli Ritter is going to hang out with me before the action starts, and I hear Mark Alford may actually throw down on a table (I think that means he’s going to play).
So, hope you can join us at Shark’s in Shawnee on February 18! To sign up and be “all in” hit the link below. And say hi to me….sorry you won’t be able to take advantage of me at the table. I’m going to leave that to you real card sharks! :)
