They played until almost 3am, the Texas Holdem Poker Tournament at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas was a big success.
There was lots of fun to be had, and search engine marketers from all over the planet came out to attend this first (I’m suspecting a 2008 event is likely) large scale poker tournament played by attendees of PubCon 2007.
The event began at 9pm and did not end until around 3am, with Dan Perry beating out Jeremy Shoemaker, for a winning pot of over $3000.00.
The t-shirts came out great and every player received one. Some hotel staff at the Venetian received shirts as well.
There were over 80 players and the charity event was sponsored by Best of the Web, Planet Chiropractic, SEOish, and Chipotle.
A big thanks to everyone that participated to make this such a spectacular event!
