|The winner of one of three tournaments held at PlayersOnly.com last weekend is off to New York City for the premiere of Lucky You, Warner Brothers’ romantic new poker movie starring Eric Bana and Drew Barrymore. Other poker tournament winners last weekend were awarded trips to the Playboy Mansion in Beverly Hills and the WSOP in Las Vegas.|
Texas college student Cory C., known at PlayersOnly.com as “odessaslim”, won the Lucky You prize package that includes tickets to attend the exclusive Tribeca Film Festival premiere as well as airfare and two nights of hotel accommodations.
The tournament, co-sponsored by Bluff Magazine, was held on Sunday night at PlayersOnly.com, and it was clear from the beginning that “odessaslim” was one of the most likely players to end up at the final table, but he had some tough competition.
“I am usually a tight aggressive player but I change it up depending on where I stand in a tournament or my feel for the table,” said the winner. “In this particular tourney I played loose at the beginning because first was the only place that had any value to me and I wanted to have a chance to win. Some of the players on the Bluff forum were the only players that I had respect for but they were unable to chip up early and were not a factor.”
It was a busy tournament weekend at PlayersOnly.com. Also on Sunday night, PlayersOnly.com held the second of their weekly WSOP satellite tournaments and awarded their second $12,000 WSOP Prize Package. The winner of a special tournament held on Friday night won a seat at next weekend’s Celebrity Poker Tournament at the Playboy Mansion.
