Charity Region Player Sandra Drum Wins the $10,000 Monthly Championship

Here at the VFW in Walpole, 182 players came out and played in the $10,000 Monthly Championship for a chance at winning a seat into the Season 29 $30k Finals coming up in 3 weeks.

Arriving late to the party was Sandra Drum, who came down and once she took her seat, she never left.

Sandra won today’s event taking home $2500.

Starting this Final Table, Sandra started in 3rd place in chips and from there she was on “cruise control”. She knocked out 3 players en route to the win. She said that she had to be patient and wait for the right time to make her move since Manny (who was the chip leader) was to her right.

“My turning point before the Final Table was when I knocked out Billy “Milkshake” with pocket Jacks when he had pocket 6’s,” said Drum.

Blinds at the time were 80,000/160,000,

Glenn, Gretel, Craig and the rest of the Eastern Poke Tour tournament staff want to thank everyone for coming out today and want to remind everyone of the EARLY start of 10AM for the last Season 29 $10K Monthly to be held on March 30th.
