Capitol Casino and KSFM 102.5 teamed up on July 28 to host their Third Annual Celebrity Bounty Poker Tournament. With DJs Waynee Wayne, Sugabear, Juan Valdez, and Boondock on hand to entertain (and try their luck against the strong field of 135 entrants), the tournament was a big hit.
In addition to the bounty packages, prizes included an iPod touch, iHome docking station, headphones and a Nintendo Wii. With bounties on all of the DJs it was tough for them to last through the aggressive play of many of Sacramento’s finest players.
In the thick of things was Sugabear, who outlasted his crew by making the final table and claiming his share of the more than $16,000 cash prize pool. After playing solid poker all day, recording artist/rapper RayDogg also forged his way into the money with a final table appearance. After knocking out some of the shorter stacks it was down to three players. Jeff K, Craig S, and Wes L collected $3,596 on a three-way chop.
Capitol Casino is concluding their Summer Splash giveaway with the second of two drawings on Sept. 15. All customers with a Capitol Casino Player Rewards Card who get a full house in a tournament or a live poker game receive a raffle ticket to the drawing.
