About BigTex


I am a 72 year old Tunica grinder who has been a cash game player for many years and  just started playing tournament poker in 2010. But since traveling the tourney circuit I have made many friends around the country and have had a little luck on the felt as I have gotten 20 reportable cashes since January of 2010. I did not get to play much in 2012-14 due to heart problems which ended up with a triple bypass  2012 and another heart surgery Jan 2015 and also April 2017. Resumed limited travel so look for a red electric wheelchair zipping around the floor.
