I held a small home game to open up my newly finished basement and new table. 6 person $20 tournament. It was a blast.

Ended up winning it, with some river luck at one point.

The hand: 20k chip starting stack. I was the deep stack the entire tournament after a couple big hand wins. About half way through the game, I had Q5 off suite with a flop of QQ4. 2 handed. I check, other player bets 2k, I go all in (she’s down to about 7k in chips) and she calls and flips over KQ. Ouch.

Turn is a 7, and the river - 5, giving me the full house for the win.

Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good.

Congrats on the win and for the very nice whole set-up!
The crew pictured looks ultra-fine as well.
As you 'll soon find out, serious (rules-wise and ettiquette-wise) and nice (as people) players are hard to find and keep in meaningful quanitities:)
It's a never-ending process, and you can't buy them, unlike equipment.

Nice set-up @TomC727, especially the chairs and table top. Congrats on the win.

Agree 100%.

It's something you are always doing, looking to keep a full an active roster of players.
