Brandon man wins $50k in Grand Falls poker tournament

Posted: Updated:

A Brandon man took home the grand prize of more than $50,000 to win the BLUFF Mid-States Poker Tour at Grand Falls Casino.

The tournament was held at Grand Falls Casino Resort in Larchwood, IA over the weekend. Josh Smith outlasted a 218-player field to be the grand prize winner.

Smith won the championship with pocket 8s. Going to the last card, Smith was behind against pocket 10s, but the money card came giving Smith a Jack High Straight.

"Amazing, this is unreal. It still hasn't hit me yet," Smith said in a news release. "I started the tournament with $50 and won the whole thing."
