Texas Hold’em tournament benefits Kremmling Visitors Center

Don’t miss a terrific night of food, drinks and tournament poker in the Texas Hold’em Challenge at Kremmling on Saturday night.

Held in the CSU Extension Hall at the fairgrounds in Kremmling, the poker tournament starts promptly at 7 p.m. The doors open at 6 p.m. for participants to begin enjoying dinner.

The Texas Hold’em Challenge is an “all in” tournament with no additional buys-ins. In other words when you are out, you are out.

Saturday night’s tournament features professional tables and dealers. Hold’em lessons will be from 6 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. if participants need to learn how to play or want to refresh their tournament poker skills.

The cost for each participant is $60, which includes tournament buy-in, dinner and two drink tickets. Wine and beer will be served.

If friends or a spouse would like to come and watch a participant play but don’t want to play themselves, they are welcome to attend Saturday night’s event for $15, which includes dinner.

The top finisher will be crowned King or Queen of Kremmling Texas Hold’em and will be awarded a seat at the Statewide Finals. The other top four players will also be recognized.

Saturday’s tournament play is not for real money. Participants are playing for bragging rights. However, many great door prizes and giveaways will be awarded to participants.

Along with the Kremmling Area Chamber of Commerce, the Texas Hold’em Challenge is sponsored by Ghostwood Interiors and Confluence Energy, which is owned by Mark and Karen Mathis. As a raffle prize for the tournament, they have donated a one-of-a-kind handcrafted poker table which will be on display at the CSU Extension Hall on Saturday night.

Raffle tickets for the Ghostwood poker table can be purchased from any Kremmling Chamber member or the Kremmling Visitor Center. The drawing will be March 29 at the annual Kremmling Chamber Banquet.

Both the proceeds from the raffle tickets and tournament entry fees will benefit the Kremmling Visitor Center’s Building Fund.

Those wanting to attend the Texas Hold’em Challenge can pay in advance with a credit card over the phone by calling the Kremmling Chamber. They also have the option of paying at the door Saturday by cash, check or credit card starting at 6 p.m.

For more information call the Kremmling Chamber of Commerce at 970-724-3472 or e-mail kacey@kremmling.net.
