|Richard Head, 25, looks on in disbelief after losing|
in the first round of the strip poker tournament held
in Bridgeport at Lucky's Bar and Strip Poker Club.
As expected, a huge crowd showed up Friday evening for the free wiener and melon feed that preceded the beginning of the strip poker tournament. Mayor Ben Dover was on hand to cut the ribbon to get things rolling and act as an official observer.
The first round began promptly at 8:01 with three tables of four players at each table. The rules were standard five card stud rules except with deuces, threes, and Jacks wild.

Meanwhile local clergy hope to find a way to stop the strip poker playing saying the rules of stud poker are not being followed making it an illegal card game. OFF THE WALL NEWS will follow up on the findings and file a report.
