Retired School Administrator Spending His Share Of The $100,000 Blackjack Tournament Prize Money Wisely

Dave Lewis, of Olmsted Falls is a retired school administrator who tried his hand at Blackjack during the early part of 2013. Lewis played Blackjack at the Horseshoe Casino in Cleveland along with 300 other guests in a winner-take-all tournament that was valued at a $100,000.

Towards the end of the tournament, when it came down to 5 players, they made an unofficial pact saying that the winner would get $50,000 and the others would take $10,000, just to make sure everyone had a piece of the prize. In the end, Lewis ended up winning the tournament, much to the delight of his wife.

As agreed, the prize money was split and Lewis ended up walking away with close to $60,000. Lewis said that they used the money wisely. Some of it they sent to their son who is in college, they went on a much needed vacation to Aruba and plan to use some more to complete some of the things they always wanted to do.

Lewis is not a professional blackjack player, although he might be tempted now to try his hand at the game that helped him increase his savings significantly.
