The elite of gin rummy players from around the world gathered at Ballys Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas last week to play in the 2012 edition of the World Series of Gin Rummy. The competition this year was extremely tough with players fighting it out in three different competitions from May 20th - 23rd and OnlineRummy.co.uk was there to report on the winners which we can exclusively reveal below along with their pictures.
In the Partnership Tournament Phil Wong and Dave Hermann played through to win reinforcing Dave's winning streak following his recent win in the singles tournament at the South East Florida Open which means he will keep his current ranking of number one in the Player of the year at Gin Rummy Tournaments. Phil Wong finished last years Player of The Year ranked number 9 so obviously a very strong team to beat.
Paul Foster fought his way though to winning the Consolation Tournament and from the smile on his face he was obviously extremely happy!
Seeded number 2 last year in the Player of the Year Ranking John Lantgen successfully won the singles tournament and proved once again what an incredible player he is.
