Queenstown card-sharks know when to hold’em


Two Wakatipu residents are $1200 richer after Winter Festival’s SkyCity Texas Hold’em Poker Tournament.
David Kelly was the winner outlasting 61 entrants who started at six different tables at SkyCity Queenstown Casino last night (Tuesday). 

However, Kelly earlier agreed with runner-up Jared McVicker to split the winnings evenly no matter who came out on top. 

Both walked away with about $1200. 

Paul Chisnall in third earned about $600 for his efforts. 

The tournaments come ahead of SkyCity Queenstown’s upcoming New Zealand Poker Tour events with satellite tournments and bigger main events.
