Kurt Bourhenne and tournament director Harry Konishi tied for low net of the day, 50, in winning the third flight. Ron Pine, 51; was second, followed by Ron Watson, 53; Steve Moody, A wt Salazar and Frank Snee, knotted at 54; and Manny Miranda, 55.

Tournament Poker Club President Susan Dodson won the month’s second tournament Feb. 15, with an ace-high straight, outdueling treasurer Grace Buster. Dealer of the final table was Tournament Director Ken Goettsch. Both players felt they had a strong hand when Grace was dealt two cards, an ace and 9, and Susan was dealt a jack and king. Both bet all their chips on the hand.
When the common cards had all been dealt, Grace had a pair of aces. Susan had a higher hand because the cards in her hand and three of the common cards on the board gave Susan an ace high straight (10-J-Q-K-A).
Before retirement, Susan was a teacher. She and husband, Bob, have lived in Mutual 7 for more than 20 years.
Susan’s great joy is taking care of Bob, who is a singer/entertainer. Her hobbies are the TPC, gardening in the mini-farm, reading, playing cards, cooking, and solving Sudoku puzzles.
Tournament high hands were George Elias with AAAAK and Ben Choi with AAAAQ.
