Chairmen Cecil Dunaway and Paul Adkins have been organizing tournaments in the Dayton area for 21 years. This will be the fourth such tournament held in Middletown. Paul Adkins said, “Everybody is welcome. Anybody can play and anybody can win since everybody plays by the same rules. The game is straight seven-card stud and players rotate tables and positions.” Adkins stressed that even inexperienced players have an equal chance for success.
