Have you ever wished to play Texas Hold 'Em alongside your favorite Cincinnati Reds?
The ninth annual Reds Community Fund Celebrity Poker Tournament was held on Saturday, December 6, 2014 in Ball Room "A" on the third floor at the Duke Energy Convention Center. The doors opened at 3:00 p.m. for registration and side games, and the tournament began at 4:00 p.m.
Each table of 10 featured a current or former Reds player, coach, broadcaster, or other local celebrity. Plus, if a poker player knocked a celebrity out of the tournament, they received the autographed jersey off their back!
At the 2014 event, Brian Oberst of Newburgh, Indiana outlasted 630 poker players to win the 9th annual Redsfest Celebrity Texas Hold'em Tournament and the $11,000 first place prize. The last Reds player to fall was Reds Prospect Michael Lorenzen finishing in 75th Place. Reds' Assistant Hitting Coach Lee Tinsley came in 74th Place.
The event capped off another successful FOX Sports Ohio Redsfest presented by PNC Bank for the Reds Community Fund.
