Local Award for 4BR Editor

4BR Editor's expertise bears fruit — on the poker table...

Kings

 

If you thought 4BR knew how to pick a winner in the brass band contesting world, then it seems it’s all down to the Editor’s ability at Texas hold ‘em Poker…

Good use

For the second time in a week, Iwan Fox has revealed a previously unknown talent for playing poker, winning his second local tournament in a row.

we know a few keen banding people who enjoy a game, so 4BR may sponsor the first brass band poker tournament in the world4BR

Glory

This time he scooped the pot against 50 other players—a full house of a pair of Kings and three two’s raking in the glory, although he won’t be giving up the day job just yet.

Sponsor

"Given how badly I play the rest of the year it came as a bit of a surprise. Still, a wins, a win. I don’t think its an excuse to try for the World Series of Poker just yet though, although we know a few keen banding people who enjoy a game, so 4BR may sponsor the first brass band poker tournament in the world!"
