Flash: Cool Ray Fogerlund Wins ABT

Ray Fogerlund, formerly of Bakersfield, now retired in Las Vegas, won the American Backgammon Tour Player of the Year honors for 2011 with a record 88.8 points. And then lost all of his prize earnings betting on Hard 8 at the Jerry's Silver Nugget in North Vegas. This is not Ray's first time at the podium accepting the award. His performance last time earned him the Sally Fields Best Acceptance Speech award to go with his ABT honor. Hoping for a double-double, fans flocked to the ceremony this year, held during the Pittsburgh Open, but were somewhat disappointed by a more restrained speech from the former fireman.
