At the Roast

The 25th annual World Series of Poker world champion Russ Hamilton was roasted at/for lunch. The audience was treated to a great luncheon in one of the Orleans's ballrooms and Card Player Cruises own Mark Tenner emceed the festivities. Shown here are the roasters and others. From left are Woody Moore, Dennis Novinskey, Mark Tenner, Russ Hamilton (man of the hour), Tom Jacobs, Blair Rodman, Bonnie Damiano (who coordinated the entire weekend of events), and Mansour Matloubi. You could tell from all of the good-natured ribbing how popular a guy Russ is. It was an honor to be part of the festivities.
