I would like to have a poker game in memory of my brother, Steven Kokkila because I enjoy the company of this group so much!!!! Some of you know that my brother died in a motorcycle accident June 22, 2012 and he had just turned 26 three days before. His birthday is June 19th. He LOVED poker so this tournament is in memory of him. This is not supposed to be a sad day.... it is to keep my brother's legacy alive and his love for poker alive. He would have loved rounders!!!


As you can see from the picture he had a tattoo of a mustache and that is why I have so many mustache things :)

    squeaks: Want to give you my deepest and most sincere condolences since it is never easy to say goodbye to your loved ones -- especially, your own brother. It is, awfully, nice of you to honor and remember his passing by providing your house up for a tourney. Be strong and may you be blessed and praised on this very special anniversary. God Bless!
