Last week, ten Syracuse Crunch hockey players took on average joes at Turning Stone Casino for a special poker tournament and if you missed it, there will be a second one on April 4th!

How celebrity knock-out tourneys work is several well-known celebs (this time, Crunch players) join a poker tournament with the expectation that if you happen to be the lucky person to knock one of them out, you win an autographed trophy from them, or in this case the literal shirt off their back!

The next tournament is scheduled at the poker room for April 4th, registration starts at 6p and cards get dealt at 7. If you don't have the $125 entry fee, you've got three months to cough it up and considering the prize(s), you can get a lot of mileage out of those bucks (Joe D'Agostino pictured above took home 3 of them!) This is an annual thing with games twice a year, so brush up on your card skills and get some empty shadow boxes ready!
