Enjoying my tour of the great Northwest, where the mountains and countryside are beautiful, the food good, people friendly and the poker games fantastic!
 
So far we’ve played poker in Nevada, California, Oregon and Washington. This past week we played the Fall Round Up of Poker in Pendleton, Oregon. The championship game of No Limit Hold’em had a $500-plus buy-in with my wife Carol and I bounties. The tourney drew over 600.
 
A bounty is a prize that the poker room puts on a player which makes that person a target for all the other players to get the last of their tournament chips and knock out of the tournament.
 
I have touched the money a couple of times, just enough for expenses. Last week, 211 senior poker players paid $200 each into the prize pool and Wildhorse poker room added money to the pool.
 
“The Trail Boss” Roland Waters created a prize pool of $45,200 and three entry fees for the top three players of the tournament to enter and play in June 2011 at the XX annual Seniors World Championship of Poker at the World Series of Poker.
 
The seniors and Wildhorse poker room have been made charter members of the Oklahoma Johnny Hale Club. Memberships are being created all over the world of poker into the official seniors club of the WCOP at the WSOP.
 
The rules for membership approval are simple: agree to create a team of senior players from their poker room, wear their colors and compete in the WCOP at the WSOP each year in June.
 
The OKJ club having one of its members finishing the highest in the annual seniors championship game will receive a plaque of honor as being the best of the year.
 
Also, many thanks to friend and fellow columnist, Max Shapiro, whose column will soon be listed on my website (www.okjohnny.com).
 
I have used some of Max’s work and information from his article in the Wildhorse Poker Round Up daily.
 
My newest tournament, The Super Seniors, will be played in June 2011 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. 
 
Now, though, I would like to recognize the winners at the Wildhorse: #1 George Thelan of Bolo, WA; #2 W.R.Smith of Benton City, WA; #3 Anthony Simpson of Pasco, WA; #4 Bob William of Walla Walla, WA; #5 Ed Wright of Livingston, TX; #6 Duane Drushella of Albany, WA; #7 Carol Lewis of Cloverdale, OR; #8 John Novak of  Coeur d’ Alene, ID; #9 Russell McDaniel of Seattle, WA.
 
Remember to always stay lucky!
