There’s never a dull night in the Monkeyverse! Last week, we hosted an epic night of poker with our celebrity guests and OnChainMonkey holders Owen Wilson, Woody Harrelson, and Charlie Lee (@coblee#4522). Our OnChainMonkey community was more than excited to take on the big names while also doing good. Any OnChainMonkey holder was welcome to join, with the buy-in starting at 100 bananas 🍌, with 50 of them joining the celebrities to have fun for a good cause.
Owen Wilson sat in the top 10 for much of the night but ultimately was knocked out right before the final table by @m1tsuru#8078. Woody came strong, holding the chip lead for a large part of the tournament, but he finished 6th after running into a buzzsaw by the name of Charlie Lee. Apparently, his crypto skills are second to only his poker face!
Charlie played textbook big stack poker, using his chips to his advantage to push other players off the hands. Multiple times he outplayed his opponents, taking the pot with a weaker hand, but forcing them out with big bets. And while Charlie Lee ultimately took home the win, the tournament had an unlikely hero in @NFT_Only 0x224.eth #9961. This notable OCM, who has been a true community leader, kept himself alive, hitting a two-outter against Charlie (~4% chance) to stay in the game. He played exceptionally well from a low stack, and at one point, took the chip lead in his heads-up matchup with the founder of Litecoin. However, the crypto OG proved too strong, using his aggressive play to take down the win.
What a night in the Monkeyverse, with 5,400 OCM bananas awarded to the winners and 2.5 ETH to Save the Soil, a 501c3 and global movement launched by Sadhguru, to address the soil crisis by bringing together people from around the world to stand up for Soil Health, and supporting leaders of all nations to institute national policies and actions toward increasing the organic content in cultivable Soil. Metagood decided to donate to this group in honor of Woody Harrelson who narrated and was in the documentary “Kiss The Ground.”
