Entered a Poker Tournament for my Birthday and I Won! I also got two nicknames. First, after my Pocket Jacks beat Pocket Sevens on a board of J-7-K, the person I beat kept calling me Captain Marvel because I was wearing a Marvel ball cap. As the tournament went on, I frequently won with a Jack in my hole cards and the players took to calling me "Jacks".

My wife was at the casino Starbucks because she didn't want to watch me bust out - just playing the odds - but once I was in the money, one of the spectators was nice enough to go over and tell her so. He came back to tell me she had the biggest smile and was breathing a sigh of relief. Once in the money people started dropping fast and it was all over about 45 minutes later when I put the other person all in with an A-8. They had 7-7, and an Ace came up on the flop.

At the table was a person who plays a game with friends and he has a rule that if you win with a 7-2, you collect a bonus from everyone else at the table. I love that idea.

That's awesome! I play occasionally at my local casino, and monthly in a very low stakes home game with friends. We often play Bomb Pots, where everyone antes like 4 big blinds and action goes straight to the flop, no pre-flop action.

Was the tournament a daily at one of the LA casinos?

that is how we use to pay as well, fold or not, if somebody won with 7-2, all players had to pay them a bonus. Always fun when somebody with 7-2 had no hand at all but managed to get somebody with a much better hand to fold with a bluff.

Turned in a new, and hopefully final, draft of a feature script to the producers and director my wife and I have been working with. If they approve it's going out to actresses and financiers.
