On Tuesday 12th October, UKA's Texas No Limit Hold’em poker tournament was held in Festsalen at Samfunnet. A good bunch of gamblers of both genders met up with their poker faces and in a good mood. The goal of the night; Having fun and winning the first prize of a gift card from festutstyr.no.

Many participants in Festsalen felt the excitment when the tournament finally started. There was a calm start with introductory rounds, and the 30 to 40 players seemed to have a good time. After a while less and less people were left in the game and finally we were left with 12 players on to the semi finals.

The competition started to get tough, but the excitment was still on top when 6 people passed onto the finals and after a total of five hours of poker we had a winner: Aasmund Jonassen Verpe – now the proud owner of a gift card. All in all – a great event and contratulations to the victor!
