Tiffany Michelle

After the success of its online fundraiser, hosted by Full Tilt, Road 2 Recovery is happy to announce that its live tournament hosted by the MGM Grand was another fund-raising success.

The charity event raised over $43,000, with 67 players and fans paying $300 for a seat in the action. The real money came from the unlimited $100 rebuy option, with Chip Jett, Adam Schoenfeld, Maria Ho, Brandon Cantu and Tiffany Michelle.

The final table featured Tiffany Michelle, Brandon Cantu, Jeff Madsen, James Mordue, Adam Schoenfeld, Lonny Flack (Layne's brother), Matt Lindsey, Curtis Cunningham, Dana K. and Ari Pace.

The MX fans were no match for the poker professionals on the final table, with Jeff Madsen and Tiffany Michelle getting down to heads-up. The tournament was all over when Michelle woke up to pocket aces and a push by Madsen.

Madsen was unable to catch up, giving Tiffany Michelle the win, and the first-place prize: a $10,000 entry into the 2009 WSOP Main Event ... along with a spiffy watch from Curtis & Co., a 22-lb crystal trophy, and accommodations at the fabulous MGM Grand Las Vegas.
