Take your Kid to work day

by , Nov 16, 2006 | 6:18 am

Joe Sebok and Barry Greenstein won the WPT “Fathers and Sons” tourney. That’s kinda sweet, no?

Too bad (and a little discriminatory?) that David and Shirley Williams couldn’t play. And what about Clonie and Edna? I wonder what would’ve been more important to the WPT … keeping the “Fathers and Sons” name (because that’s who they’re clearly marketing to) or the TV goodness of letting it be a Parents & Children affair. Doesn’t have quite the ring to it, I know … And while the concept of a WPT Family Game might make a nice little political statement, too, it doesn’t really go with Budweiser as the sponsor.

Here’s the full field:

Barry Greenstein / Joe Sebok
Doyle / Todd Brunson
Barry / Jeff Shulman
Mike / Rome Simon (? who ?)
Steve / John Stolzman
Dick / Vince van Patten

NOTE: Still trying to figure out the structure … like did the Dad’s and Sons share chips, or were they done when one went down? In the end, Barry and Sebok duked it out for the $25k WPT Championship seat.

    NOTE: Couldn’t find any screen shots from the Sanford & Son episodes related to poker. If you happen to have anything with Fred and/or Lamont in a green visor, please send it my way.

    Father and son shared chips, they’d switch between levels or when someone was eliminated. There was also a time when they could tag-in during a hand one time. VVP was the only player who didn’t actually appear at the table since his father was eliminated first. After the Greenstein’s eliminated the Brunson’s, they played headsup, which consisted of them both going allin blind hand 1.
