crackin_ty cracks Red Spade Open for $247K

ps_news_thn.jpgFifty-five bucks. It will buy you a decent meal. It is good for a night out at the movies with your best guy or gal. It might buy you groceries for a few days, if you're frugal and don't mind some generic items. Or, you might consider buying into the Red Spade Open when it comes around.

That's what Austria's crackin_ty did this weekend. The $55 tournament entry was good for more than a couple chicken breasts and some crackers. A lot more. In fact, crackin_ty could end up buying groceries for everybody he knows and still have a lot of cash left over.

Up against nearly 25,000 people, crackin_ty topped the field and picked up $247,378 in cash in yesterday's Red Spade Open.
