Troy Tran of Toledo stayed in the neighborhood and pocketed $8,908, and Chris Chilcote from nearby Findlay, Ohio earned $4,806 in a short period of time. Tyler Trumble made his trip from Tipton, Michigan worthwhile, cashing $2,970, and Robin Mokdessi made the drive down from Cleveland earning $2,160. Then there’s Shawn Combs from Ann Arbor, Michigan, who made back more than his gas money with a cash prize of $1,485.
These victories all took place at the January Mega Stack event held at Hollywood Casino Toledo. With a buy-in of $300 and 100 entries, this created a prize pool of $27,000. The next Mega Stack will take place on Sunday, February 10th. While you’re playing in this fine poker room (managed by my friend, Peter Lau) find out how to qualify for the big Hollywood Poker Open, coming up in June. Hosted at the gorgeous M Resort in Vegas, with a guaranteed pay-out of $500,000, you can get your gas money back, and then some!
