FBMA Hosts First Ever Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament


            Save the date—April 7-8, 2018 is set for the FBMA’s first ever state-wide poker tournament. 

  Club 52 at the Melbourne Greyhound Park will be the site where poker players can show off their skill, and compete for a bounty of cash prizes.

            Entry fee is $175.00, of which $145.00 will go to the prize fund. First place and other cash prizes will depend on number of entries.

   For example, if we have 50 entrants, top prize will be $2500, and other prizes paid to eighth place. For 100 players, first place would be more

   than $4,000.00, and other cash paid to 15th place. The more the merrier, and the greater the cash prizes to be awarded.

   We’ll also have single-table tournaments (sit-and-gos) for those who have been eliminated from the main tournament. 

            For overnight lodging, the Melbourne Hilton Rialto is providing preferred rates for poker players and friends. The hotel is located

   nearby at 200 Rialto Place, Melbourne, FL 32901, and reservations can be made online, or by phoning 321-768-0200.
