Hello brings you a poker tournament - a story told in pictures
So I've heard over the past few months that quite a few people who come across this blog do so because they want to learn more about Hello (the agency where I work). Last Friday was the Hello poker tournament, which seems a perfect way to introduce the curious to the odd universe that is Hello.
When we do things, we don't really go for half measures. So for this poker night, we brought in professional dealers and regulation tables. To kick us off, Event Poker talked us through the rules of Texas Hold 'Em.
There were prizes.
And, of course, the key ingredient for any successful Hello night.
There was laughter.
And did I mention?
There were winners.
And those that were not so fortunate.
In the end, it all came down to one table.
One by one they went down.
And then there were two.
The pressure was on.
But in the end, there can be only one.
Guess who that was?
(You'll notice I didn't choose to post about Hello Race Day a few weeks ago where I came in 24th out of 28. Hey, it's my blog. I'll sugar-coat if I feel like it.)
