Dean Reno Arrives! - 4/04/09
The April Little League World Series of Poker included a few themes that regular players are beginning to expect.
Table two featured the mystyerious Donald Glaude and nine other players who were thrown into fits trying to figure
out whether or not to call the all-in bet. Besides that, for the second month in a row Gerald Hohn volunteered for the bubble
position because playing cards for five hours AND winning money would just be showing off.
Speaking of money, Stephanie Rebozzi managed to raise $134 for her Team in Training efforts and she wanted me
to thank all the players who dropped some money in the bin for her.
I haven't actually kept track of this, but over the years is seems that when someone shows up for the first time
at the game, they either make the money or win the whole thing. Continuing this tradition was Dean Reno who
finally came out to a game after being on the invite list forever, but he made up for lost time by taking
down Dick Rebozzi in head-to-head action for the April championship. Dean arrived with beer, goodies and a sharp
game of hold 'em and he left with first place money and a bounty on his head!
For those of you on Wu-watch, Kevin backed up his guarantee of making the final eight table by... Not showing up. It
kind of reminds you of the year-of-Pierre, which turned out to be a big disappointment. My guess is that Wu was
actually doing something important. Maybe the spread limit game at Garden City?
