Duke Energy Convention Center
Have you ever wished to play Texas Hold 'Em alongside your favorite Cincinnati Reds?
The eleventh annual Reds Community Fund Celebrity Poker Tournament was held on Saturday, December 3, 2016 in the Grand Ballroom 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 2016 event, William 'Buck' Rogers of Cincinnati outlasted 611 poker players to win the 11th annual Reds Community Fund Celebrity Poker Tournament and the $11,000 first place prize. Reds Alum Tom Browning finished in 27th place.
The event capped off another successful FOX Sports Ohio Redsfest presented by PNC Bank for the Reds Community Fund.
