    Justin to me was a “Genius” but a fun loving little boy way. He could get upset easily but you could tell a few minutes later he was mad at himself for getting upset.

    His sense of humor was one that all those late night show talk hosts would of loved to have writing for them, he would of made it BIG if that’s where his heart was at. But it wasn’t…It was in the Poker Community and with Huff,Seebs,Gavin, Poker News,CardPlayer and several others and he did this for a lot less money then he could of made elsewhere. Why? because this made him HAPPY.

    I do a lot of Charity work some of you may have heard of I founded it 3 years ago to help the families of law enforcement and fireman when they die in the line of duty. It is a lot of work but it makes me feel so much better at the end of the day that I do this for others.

    Justin made me feel this same way. We were not close, we just knew each other because of our love for Poker, but when we spoke it was like we had known each other for a long time. He made so many people laugh with his wit and he held together a group of up and coming Poker players who wanted to share with us their stories as well as others.

    There are not many Justin’s in this world and if there were,it would be a much better place to live.

    RIP Shronkdaddy!

    Hopefully this tournament becomes an annual event and maybe even someday makes it’s way into a Vegas Casino!

    I’m out in 286th place. Twitter is over capacity right now, so I have to post it here.

    Twitter crashed right as the Shronk Memorial Tournament began. Clearly, it was a result of the tournament. Shronk always hated social media sites like that. (He only Twittered reluctantly.)

    Was freaky that Twitter did go down, but am glad there were 359 entries for the tournament.
