Jeff Gordon Foundation Poker Classic wraps up

Last week a few professional poker players stuck around the poker room at Caesars Palace after the National Heads Up Poker Championship to show their support for the Jeff Gordon Foundation Poker Classic. Four time NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon was the host for the event benefiting his charitable organization, which provides support for several different philanthropic groups. Up for grabs in the charitable poker tournament was a seat at the 2006 World Series of Poker Championship Event and perhaps the "bragging rights" of taking down a professional poker player. The biggest winner of all, however, were the charities that benefited from the event. 

Former World Champs Chris Moneymaker, Chris "Jesus" Ferguson, and Scotty Nguyen were just a few of the high powered players involved. Other pros included last year's runner-up in the WSOP Championship Event, Steve Dannenmann, and highly respected poker player and Omaha Hold 'Em master Robert Williamson III. 

Mike Sugg, from California, outlasted the nearly fifty players that came together for the tournament. Sugg will be sitting at the Rio in Las Vegas at the end of July and take part in the 36th World Series of Poker Championship Event. Another $7,000 on top of that for accomodations.
