Ettlinger won among 52 players Sunday at Temple Israel.

“It takes luck — getting good cards at the right time — and patience to win this tournament,” said Ettlinger, who has been at the tournament’s final table a few times over the past several years but didn’t win until Sunday.

Playing in the tournament, a fundraiser for Great Lakes Region sports programs and scholarship fund and the Temple Israel Brotherhood, is something Ettlinger looks forward to each year.

“I love B’nai B’rith, and I’m happy to help,” the Waterford resident said.

Also at the final table and winning cash Sunday were Bob Shubow, Ivan Fenyvesi, Rick Sherline, Howard Genser, Jim Golden, John Saunders and Seymour Balaj, who finished in second through eighth place.
