Fellow Donks, please send a warm welcome to @zeller has recently joined the Donks. Thank you to @chuckcox for recruiting.
Welcome to the Donks, zeller. I had a hard time recruiting you. Play often and good luck.
The word on the street is that the US Department of Defense wants Chuck head up it’s new Recruitment Command. I’d feel a hell of lot safer.

Congrats @welshterrier , @69-gts @G4LLON , @12beat22 (John again), @Sir_Jeffrey and @pokerrick (Rick again) advancing to Golden Donks. Welcome and Good Luck !!!
Congrats to all - well earned.
My sincere congratulations to all winners this quarter. It takes a good amount of dedication, poker skill and yes some luck to be successful in the Donk’s leagues. Some of the newer members may not be aware that in the beginning there were 3 levels beginning with Bronze, Silver and Gold. Although the Bronze level was discontinued some early members played in and advanced to Silver by winning medallions in the Bronze league. With that in mind, I would like to send a special shout out to John (12beat22) who this past quarter won his first Silver medallion to become as far as I know the only Donk to win medallions in all three leagues. Congratulations my friend.
congrats to all champions great job,
I would like to recognize and congratulate the following players for their outstanding play during the month of March 2023. @KirbyMuckIt in Gold and @Kondrad in Silver. Each led their respective leagues in best 9 points earned during the month. Honorable mention goes out to @niceriver in Gold and @donkbusta444 in Silver for their 2nd place finishes as well.

The April 2023 Donk of the Month
It is time again for our Donk of the Month, an award given to a member that makes contributions of service to the league, demonstrates exceptional skill at the table, or has a strong positive influence on the members.
This Donk first joined the league in April of 2021 in the Silver Donks tier, advancing to the Golden Donks in his first quarter by finishing high on the 2021 Q2 Silver Donks Composite leaderboard. He obtained his first two Golden crowns in 2022 Q4 by winning the Golden Donks Wednesday 9PM and Composite leaderboards. One of our most active members, completing 406 games in just 2 years, he has also reached the final table 87 times and finished first 12 times.
With that, please allow me to announce @snitty as this month’s Donk of the Month.
Thanks again to @Mahvelous for creating these awards.
Congratulations to my dear friend Snitty for being Donk of the Month, well-deserved, I’m very happy for you, you’re such a nice guy xoxo
I would also like to congratulate all the Players of the Month, great work Kirby, Kondrad, niceriver and donkbusta, it’s not an easy task to place in the best 9 points earned in your respective leagues.

congrats snitty,well down,
Thank you for the award and the kind words from all – as well, thx to Mahvelous for putting the time and effort into making them. To get better you have to play better - and thats what part of the the donks are - an assortment of very good players who have earned their way into the league. I firmly believe that you learn more from a loss than from a victory - and i have learned lots in this league - lol
Nice job Snitty. Well deserved
