T3chlady Wins Her 1st NPP Event! – xxxKdogxxx Takes 3rd Qtr Seat

What an exciting night of firsts! After a lot of close encounters – of the poker type – T3chlady finally broke thru and won our weekly tourney. She has been cursed with some of the worst bad beats seen in our league – this side of Faldo. But unlike your host, she handled them all with class and dignity.

T3chlady is also the 7th woman to win an NPP tilt.

To my knowledge, she never had to retrieve her laptop from the toilet bowl or from the lawn of the hotel where it flew out the window. Her steady resolve and steady poker talent were rewarded tonight.

In the league standings for the 3rd quarter seat, ThePunk75’s early exit opened the door for xxxKdogxxx. He needed to finish at least 4th and managed a 3rd! Your host, Mikeniks-Faldo did finish 4th and secured 1st place over-all in Quarter 3. But I am a wildcard, so 2nd place also gets a seat in the finals. Congratulations to xxxKdogxxx.

One Quarter left and 3 seats are still available! The winner of Quarter 4, anybody tied, and the one or two Overall point leader(s) that did not win a seat. We will add three more to the NPP Final table. Good luck everyone!

On to the action:

4 min: Tomservo2 hits the flop hard with his top two pair, but T3chlady starts her run to the title by hitting trips on the same flop!

5 min: A double-kill as K9isadog (AA) takes out Wingfancurt (Kc Tc) (19th) and ThePunk75 (Ah Kh) (18th), who has to go with a flop of [6h Th Jc], but American Airlines holds up.

15 min: A short-stacked (SS) Tomservo2 (17th) has to go with his (KQ) and runs into Derf-63’s (AA).

30 min: A SS LittleRedElf (16th) has to go with (KT) but cannot run down Tigercub8189’s (44).

34 min: Douge2 (15th) with (QQ), who had an outside shot at a 3rd quarter seat, gets double-teamed by girl-on-girl action. Suetman1 (TT) and Yecats423 (JJ) call him down. Yecats hits the [J] on the flop.

36 min: A SS Theedouble*d (14th) has to try with (6s 5s) but cannot catch Meatsword’s (99).

46 min: A SS Pre01 (13th) goes with (9h 8h) but can’t catch Mistermusic5’s (A8).
50 min: A SS Absea98 (12th) is double-teamed by K9isadog and T3chlady, and K9’s pair of nines takes it down.

Then the exits come faster than I can record them! Can you say “Breakmonster”?
57 min: A SS Derf-63 (11th) goes with (KT) and cannot catch K9isadog’s (33).

58 min: A SS Mistermusic5 (10th) calls all-in with (AJ) and gets double-teamed by Meatsword (AQ) and a SS Mikeniks-Faldo with (88). The pocket pair hold up.

59 min: Meatsword (9th) goes out and I missed it, recording the other hands and trying to make a final table myself.
