Texas hold 'em cashes in for Ione celebration


Tim Patton was the winner of the fourth annual Fourth of July Texas Hold 'em Poker Tournament held June 20 at the Ione American Legion Hall. He was presented with the winner's hat and a cash award.

Billy Gates was the first player knocked out of the tournament. He was awarded the coveted 'I got skunked' hat, a handshake and lot of guff.

Others who placed included Bink Ramos, Nacho Elguezabal, Brad Clements, Dwayne Disque and Andre Kendrick.

All placers earned hats with the topĀ four earning cash awards as well. Proceeds from the event go to the Ione Fourth of July Celebration Fund.
