After 2003, BARGE would still have a home at Binion's, but this is the last year the building would bear the "Horseshoe" name (and be run by a Binion.) Howard Lederer spoke at the banquet which was held upstairs at Binion's. The NL hold'em tournament winner was Paul Person, Patti Beadles finished second. Mike Zimmers helped organize this year's BARGE event, but he chose not to attend, marking the end of his illustrious career as BARGE organizer.

Above is the last longer bet 77 Boy Scottro won from me at BARGE 2003.
He outlasted me in the Limit Hold'em & No Limit Hold'em & I outlasted him in the TOC.*
* 77 Boy bowed out of the History of Poker tournament whining & crying about how he was dead money or else we would have broken even this year!
Next year he has to play ALL events for the last longer bet & I'll be adding a $50 bill to my collection below.
