Big Brother contestants at Slater tournament

Big Brother 15 television show contestants Amanda Zuckerman (a Boynton Beach resident) and McCrae Olson are featured at The Andy Slater “See You Later” Poker Tournament at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Stax Poker Lounge at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek.

 The player who knocks either of them out gets $100 cash.

 Slater, a radio host on 640 WMEN-AM, hosts the tournament each month. The buy-in is $64 and the guaranteed prize pool is $10,000. The last $10K guarantee drew 404 entrants

 "I always want to keep the tournament fresh, not only have great poker value but also provide something else for people to enjoy," Slater said. "Big Brother is a very popular TV show and has lots of fans, including myself! I knew Amanda was from the area (Boynton Beach) and fresh out of the Big Brother house, so I reached out to her and she loved the idea.

 "We'll see if her relationship with McCrae is still going strong after the cards are dealt!"

 WPLG-TV Local 10 meteorologist Trent Aric also will be a celebrity bounty, and the player who eliminates him wins free entry into next month’s event.
