Playing in an organized poker tournament for the first time in his life, Joe Godfrey (HBS ’07) bested some 470 fellow card sharks in the 2006 MBA World Series of Poker, held in Las Vegas in January. Going up against students from 48 other business schools, Godfrey won the tourney’s main event, taking home $24,822 and a $15,000 watch, and automatically earning a $10,000 seat at this summer’s World Series of Poker. Some sixty HBS students took part in the weekend competition. The event also had a fundraising component, which this year resulted in a $20,000 donation to the Alzheimer’s Association.
