xxxKdogxxx Wins to Take Over the 3rd Quarter Lead

Seventeen made it to post, and xxxKdogxxx put his Phil Helmuth type entrance to good use. He showed up fashionably late and proceeded to take over the table. It was a battle between him and Douge2 for the chip lead almost from beginning to end.

With the win, xxxKdogxxx slips by ThePunk75 and extends his lead on the host Mikeniks-Faldo, for the league lead. But…plenty of poker left to play!

On to the action:

9 min: Theedouble*d (17th) Missed it mis-playing my own hand.
18 min: K9isadog (16th) has his (JJ) run into Mistermusic5’s (KK).
20 min: A short-stacked (SS) Derf-63 (15th) has to go when his (34) hits a flop of [34K]. Yecats432 has to call with (KJ) and hits a [J] on the river.

31 min: Tomservo2 (13th) hits the small end of a straight, while Douge2 hits the big end. (twss)
32 min: Wingsfancurt (14th) is knocked out by Mikeniks-Faldo’s flush.
34 min: Some bad karma here as Suetman1’s (13th) (AA) gets run down by Douge2’s (KK) with a [K] on the flop! Ouch! (AA) had trouble holding on to victories a lot tonight.

47 min: Mistermusic5 (11th) has his (JJ) run into somebody’s (QQ).
51 min: A SS Tigercub8189 (10th) goes on a flop of [47A] holding (K7), but Absea98 pairs his Ace.

1st break:
Douge2 5938
Yecats423 4052
XxxKdogxxx 3065
Absea98 2855
T3chlady 2790
Pre01 2650
Mikeniks-Faldo 1951
LittleRedElf 1224
ThePunk75 975

63 min: Some more heartache as Yecats423 (9th) sees her (KK) run into Douge2’s (AA) and this time the American Airlines lands safely.

65 min: Yet another painful exit as a SS Pre01 (8th) sees his (QQ) lose to a SS LittleRedElf’s (AT) with an [A] on the flop.

Finally, Faldo had to play (QsTs) and hit two pair and then (Ac 4c) and paired the [A] to survive. The “comeback” was on!

70 min: Now it was LittleRedElf’s (7th) time for the pain as he sees his (KK) run into xxxKdogxxx’s (AA).

Lots and lots of (AA) dealt tonight - both winning and losing hands. I could not show you all of them in battles which saved players and moved chips around. But the number of (AA) dealt tonight was on the high side.

76 min: SS ThePunk75 (6th) loses a coin flip with (99) to xxxKdogxxx (AJ), and hits a [J] on the flop. Kdog won a lot of these down the stretch – which you have to do to win.

83 min: T3chlady’s (5th) two pair run into xxxKdogxxx’s straight. Yet another xxx victim. Meanwhile Douge2 just picks up pots to stay close.

97 min: Absea98 (4th) goes with (JJ) after a flop of [9c 2d Td]. The “on fire” xxxKdogxxx actually has the lead with (Kd Qd), and calls. The [J] on the turn is a nail in the coffin and not a reprieve on the river for Absea.

Lots of painful exits tonight. Let me be one of them.

A long battle ensues with Faldo almost taking 2nd place in chips against these two sharks. Almost.

112 min: Finally, a SS Mikeniks-Faldo (3rd) goes with (A6), but runs into Douge2’s (AA)! What is with all the (AA)’s tonight???

Heads up: xxxKdogxxx 135000 - 12000 Douge2

115 min: xxxKdogxxx 9500 - 16000 Douge2
120 min: xxxKdogxxx 19100 - 6400 Douge2

121 min: A SS Douge2 (2nd) has to go with (A6) and a flop of [36T], but xxxKdogxxx is holding (QT).

Congratulations to xxxKdogxxx on his league lead!
