The turn card gave Leonel Alberto of Miami the winning straight and a very successful first-ever Dan LeBatard Celebrity Poker Tournament came to a close on July 16 at Dania Jai-Alai in Dania Beach. The tournament drew 309 entries, the largest crowd to ever play in a multitable tournament at Dania.

“We were taking prepaid reservations for about two weeks and sold out the tournament easily,” said Frank Risi, Dania’s cardroom manager. “We probably could have seated another 150 players if we had the space.”

Dan LeBatard and many of the "790 The Ticket" personalities and staff not only participated in the tournament, but entertained the crowd throughout.

Alberto won $1,963 and the “Golden Moustache” trophy awarded by LeBatard.
