Near-record crowd shows up for Wednesday night poker at Bardog

Tonight I started at Blue Fin for their sushi happy hour, which lasts until 6:30. $3, $5, and $7 rolls, all of which cost significantly more if ordered off the menu.

With my stomach happy, I made a brief trip by the Saucer, then on to Bardog for their 7:30 Texas Hold’em game in the Underdog. It’s free to play, just show up by 7:30 and grab a seat. This was one of their busiest nights ever.

There were four tables going, and when I say full, I mean overfull, meaning tables that were meant to handle 6 were seating 8. Futhermore, people were coming and going Tournament director Poker Jon estimated there were nearly 40 people there.

I had a good run and made it to the 7-person final table. Unfortunately I was the first one out. Poker Jon took my seat and dealt for the remainder of the tournament.

Thoroughly enjoyed playing with everyone tonight. Although I busted out one seat before points for Poker Jon’s 10-week final table, I still had a lot of fun.

Poker Jon’s league also plays at Bayou Bar & Grill (Sunday), Silly Goose (Monday), and Old Zinnie’s (Tuesday). Individual nightly prizes, plus points toward the league championship.
