And the winner ringer is …

by , Jan 23, 2006 | 2:41 am

All things considered, it seems only appropriate that the winner of the Pokerati Invitational was a guy who came to town to promote his new poker-related book. (Get it? Pokerati … literati … we love the confluence of poker and words.)

Tom will be speaking tonight at Chamberlain’s Steak and Chop House as part of the Addison Author Lecture Series.

UPDATE: Full results here.

The six remaining players have all won two sit-n-gos in a row. After level 1 it looked like some big names might find their way to the featured table … Andy Bloch, Howard Lederer, Mike Caro, John Phan, and Eric “E-fro” Froelich all won their first leg … but none of them could do it twice. Tom did, and he was the last to qualify, as he faced off against a kid who even when severely outchipped played great poker and just wouldn’t go away. […]
