Just as regular as Santa making his annual shimmy down the chimney, Deerfoot Inn & Casino host their Ho Ho Hold’em poker event each December. With the weather bitter cold outside, players came in where it's warm for a pair of poker tournaments in the Calgary poker room.
The first Ho Ho Hold’em event was a $220 tournament that received 77 entries on Saturday, December 10. The eventual winner was John Hansmeyer, earning $4,755 to take Christmas shopping.
