Texas Hold'em Poker Tournament At The American Legion North St. Paul, MN

The free Texas Hold'em Poker Tournament event in the video was an annual special game at the American Legion Post 39 in North St. Paul. There was no qualifying for the tournament, held on a Sunday afternoon during the Summer of 2010. The Tournament Director said that the event, the second annual big game at the Legion, draws about 80 people. One of the winners of the event said that he thought there were about 120 players that day. The players started with $6,000 dollars worth of chips each. Prizes were $125 for 1st Place, $50 for 2nd Place, and $25 for 3rd Place. There was plenty of eating and drinking and partying going on during the event by the players, who also enjoyed knowing that some of the proceeds from the event were donated to the North St. Paul Food Shelf. The special menu that the Legion kitchen was offering up included a $3 brat served with potato salad and pickles. Our Minnesota Gaming camera operator described the brat as "juicy," the bun as "fresh, tasty," the potato salad as "It's got a German thing going on," and the pickles as "really good." During the tournament, the bartender was offering $1 tap beers. The name of the beer was Old Glory. The company that makes the beer says that a portion of the revenue generated from every keg sold gets donated to help Veterans. Our camera operator, who tried the beer at another time when not working with the camera, said that the Old Glory beer was "really good."
