$1,500 in cash prizes were won by the top three finishers in the Carson Valley Inn's monthly blackjack tournament in February. Ramon Villalobos (Gardnerville, NV), Rosalva Domingue-Veloz (Gardnerville, NV) and Debbie Williams (Kings Beach, CA) finished first through third capturing $750, $450 and $300 respectively. Debbie Williams had already qualified for the Inn's year-end Blackjack Tournament of Champions so 4th place finisher Jeff Blair (Gardnerville, NV) is now also in for the December event.
