Merhibka Wins His First NPP Tourney

Welcome to the Walk of Fame Merhibka! The fifty-eighth winner here at NPP!

One of the few “mystery” players at NPP, Merhibka does not play often. He shows up one to three times a quarter…and quietly plays very well. Faldo would love some comments or email with a little more information. Either way, Merhibka is now in the hunt for a seat in the NPP finals. Let’s see if he returns to compete for it.

T3chlady takes over the league lead over ThePunk75, Meatsword and Douge2. Faldo thinks it will be a close and exciting battle the entire way.

On a personal note, Faldo has not been feeling all that well lately and have been napping after work. Well, I missed an email for a new player for tonight’s tourney and I feel bad about that. Hopefully, the newbies will be here next week. I feel awful as Faldo is usually on top of this stuff.

On to the action:

1 min: Blood right out of the chute as Rjmech (19th) loses a coin flip with (AK) to T3chlady (TT).

3 min: LittleRedElf (18th) has (As Qs) and sees a flop of [7A7] and moves in. Wingsfancurt is holding (Kh 7h). Ouch! That is two dangerous players out of the way quickly.

20 min: Pre01 (17th) goes with his (TT) and runs into Theedouble*d’s (AA).
23 min: Eyekall (16th).
26 min: xxxKdogxxx (15th) goes with (As Ks) after a flop of [57K]. Wingsfancurt calls with (KQ) and hits his [Q] on the river.

27 min: A short-stacked (SS) K9isadog (14th) goes with (J8) and cannot catch Theedouble*d’s (Ah 2h).

45 min: Derf-63 (13th)
46 min: Yecats423 (12th)
48 min: Mistermusic5 (11th) sees a flop of [KA4] and moves in. But Meatsword calls with (As 4s).

52 min: Douge2 (10th)

1st break:
Wingsfancurt 6290
Theedouble*d 5125
Meatsword 4145
T3chlady 3795
Merhibka 2860
ThePunk75 2095
Absea98 2015
Tomservo2 1140
Suetman1 1035

62 min: Merhibka slow-plays (AA) and gets ThePunk75 (9th) go with (AQ) when a [Q] lands on the river.

66 min: Tomservo2 (8th) takes the bad beat of the night with (AA) and a flop of [727]. Merhibka is holding (A7)!

84 min: A SS Suetman1 (7th) has to go with (KQ), but cannot catch Wingsfancurt’s (99).
90 min: Meatsword (6th) moves with (9c 8c) and a flop of [893]. Wingsfancurt (A9) hits his [A] on the turn.

103 min: The now SS Wingsfancurt (5th) goes with (A5), but T3chlady has (AQ).
104 min: A SS Absea98 (4th) has to try with (88) but Theedouble*d (AQ) hits an [A].
109 min: A SS T3chlady (3rd) goes with (97) and a flop of [93T], but Merhibka has (AT). Either way, this finish gives T3chlady the league lead!

Heads up: Theedouble*d 23000 - 5500 Merhibka

111 min: A complete turn of events quickly! A SS Theedouble*d (2nd) has to go with (A8) and a flop of [8R6] but Merhibka has (TT)! Nice job Merhibka.

1st – Merhibka – 24 points
2nd – Theedouble*d – 19 points
3rd – T3chlady – 15 pts
4th – Absea98 – 12 pts
