I arrived early into the poker room and was warmly greeted by Salli. Salli is the tender touch that makes this particular ladies event special. The ladies are treated to gift bags, roses, and so much more which all comes from this beautiful woman’s touch. Thanks Aunt Salli for a lovely twist on a poker tournament.
Those registering early get 500 an extra “green rooster” chips in addition to a starting stack of 5,000 chips. A dealer add-on of $10 gets you another 1,000 chips. The $150 entry event has 20 minute levels.
Actions starts at 2 PM.

The Jennifer Harman Charity Poker Tournament wrapped up earlier this month at Grand Sierra Resort in Reno. There was an amazing turn out and over $111K was raised for the National Kidney Foundation. This no-limit tournament allowed teams and individuals to play for wonderful prizes. All the participants seemed to be enjoying themselves, and were happy to re-buy frequently (which proved very good for the charity).
The LIPS team came in 3rd place in the team competition. It was a fun event that allowed time for getting to know another side to the poker industry. There is no way I can tell you better than the crew at Greasie Wheels Productions. From the typing of Lisa Wheeler, herself, I do believe. Travel to this link for all the details. http://GreasieWheels/Events_Blog/Entries/2009/3/11
We had an open seat at our table. All the table-mates smiled as the tournament director approached with Jennifer Harman following along behind. I was lucky enough to have Jennifer sit down right next to me. This allowed for closer observation. Jennifer did not wait much time to get into the action. She limped UTG with QQ, three people came along with her to see a jack high flop. Ms. Harman checked the flop noncommittally. She knew that anyone holding a descent jack would not let the flop go unchallenged. After the AJ went all-in, as expected, Jennifer called with her remaining chips. It was odd the table seemed surprised to behold the QQ she tabled. Nicely done. Jennifer was graciously taking pictures, signing autographs, and shaking hands while she played. Again, I say, nicely done.
Kudos go out to Lupe and friends who stuffed 400 gift bags for the participants. The gift bags were amazing. We received sunglasses, coffee mug, scarf, gloves, bottle of wine, cork screw, Full Tilt Poker hat and tee shirt, GSR hat, cupcake (yummy!) in a Chinese food take out box. It seems they thought of everything.
I arrived in Reno yesterday after a rather bumpy airplane ride. I am here to play with the LIPS team in the Jennifer Harmon Charity Poker tournament. This tournament benefits the National Kidney Foundation and is being held at the Grand Sierra Resort. There are a truckload of top notch sponsors, such as Full Tilt Poker, DreamTeam Poker, CardPlayer, Curtis & Co. Watches (and many more). We are anticipating a great turnout!
My sis is joining me for this trip, so I anticipate less poker than usual. Lisa does not play poker, nor does she have any interest in learning. However, as the best Sis in the world, she supports me in whatever I do—so she came along. Love you! Let’s hope she finds the Throw Down cocktail party more to her liking.
