Over 20 players descended on Sutton Masonic Hall on Friday 22 March to battle it out and to
Now in its fifth year, the annual poker tournament is one of the Foundation Club’s most enjoyable and best-supported events each year. As usual, it was a great evening with everyone having a great evening, enjoying great company.
Fifth Annual Poker Tournament
The players were split over three tables before the chip champions from each table came together to face off in the final.
It was a great evening, with many new faces, and plenty of friends and family, masons and non-masons alike, including several who are considering joining Freemasonry.
At times the tension was gripping, with lots of bluffing and double-bluffing going on as they all tried to hide behind their poker faces.
As with every tournament, there can only be one winner, and that was Colin from Coulsdon Lodge who won the prize pot of £75 and the end of the night. However, it was a close call with Colin, being pushed right to the end by Danny of Old Sinjin’s Lodge and the Club’s own Chairman Mark Budds finishing third. However, the standout player of the evening was Szymon who was only recently initiated into Crescamus Lodge, and who finished a very credible fourth, playing poker for the very first time. Beginners luck or a card shark in the making?
Masonic Charitable Foundation
The evening managed to raise £200 for the Masonic Charitable Foundation, which provides support to Freemasons, their families and the wider community. You can find out how the MCF supports Surrey by viewing their impact report.
