Montana man wins 2015 State Championship Poker Tournament

Michael Williams of Billings Mont., won the top prize at this year’s Wyoming State Championship Poker Tournament earlier this month. Braving the cold weather, 277 players participated in this year’s tournament at the Wind River Hotel and Casino. Williams won $20,160, a premium silver championship bracelet and an entry into the 2016 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, Nev. For Williams, the win came out of left field. “It was unexpected,” Williams said after the 12-hour tournament. “I loved it.” Photo of Michael Williams h/t Wind River Hotel and Casino / Pitchengine Communities #county10 #news
