Dealio Ambassadors Playing Live
Last week at Prime Social, ambassador Justin Hammer reports on Nathan Gamble’s showing, and a charity event. Be sure to catch Justin on the Twitch livestream here this week. Plus, here’s the Omaha 8 final table with Nathan.
Nathan Gamble won the 71-player field Omaha 8 or Better tournament on Monday, then came in second in the 48-player field TOE tournament on Tuesday. Combined scores were over $10k and Nathan promptly sent KL Cleeton 10% of his profits to help out with the fundraiser to get him a van to drive to Vegas.
A charity tournament for Josh Billingsley, who recently passed away unexpectedly, was able to raise over $10k for his family. Josh was a well respected member of the Houston poker community, and 43 players showed up to rebuy, add on, and donate to the cause. Josh was brought into the tournament by Tournament Director Justin Hammer, and was given add ons by many of the players in the field. He would go on to posthumously win the event after the second place finisher surrendered his stack in 2nd place.
The $1 million guaranteed main event will take place next week running Wed-Sun June 2-6 with 4 starting flights and an $1100 buy in at Prime Social in Houston TX. The tournament will once again be run by Tournament Director Justin Hammer, and is expected to have well over the 1,000 players needed to hit the guarantee.
