Bloomberg News reports that as his prize, Sawyer selected dinner for eight at Rao’s after taking down his last opponent with three jacks around 1 a.m. Thursday at New York’s Gotham Hall. He said he’d last played in his teens and had prepared for this contest by looking up the rules on the internet.
Those he beat at the tournament, presented by the World Poker Tour Foundation and benefiting Education Reform Now, included former New York Knicks Charles Oakley, John Starks and Allan Houston; “Billions” co-creator Brian Koppelman, who also wrote the poker movie “Rounders;” and professional poker players Erik Seidel, Vanessa Selbst and Andy Frankenberger.
