Odds2win777 Wins His 4rd NPP Tourney

Odds2win777 keeps moving up the NPP Walk of Fame with his 4th NPP win of his career over seventeen NPP regulars.

It was a tough road to victory as our battle hardened veterans battled for almost 3 hours. And we did not have that many entries. It’s just when the talent is as level, and as familiar with the opposition as the NPP stable is, it takes time to squeak out a victory.

We had a disappointing turnout – in my never humble opinion. We were missing about eight to ten regulars or else my over/under line of 24 would have been covered.

What ‘worries’ Faldo is the lack of new players entering the fold – and the exiting of many of our best and nicest players.

League play is not for everyone. I understand that. This is giving me food for future articles. Folks, we have to discuss it or we will be slowly going extinct – like Europeans.

Anyway, this is food for future articles. We have to discuss this as a group.

On to the NPP action:

42 min: It took 42 minutes for the first exit! Wow! Mistermusic5 (17th) with (AT) cannot catch Odds2win77 with (22).

48 min: Then Yecats423 (16th) loses her coin flip (55) to Sirgash with (AQ) when an [A] hits the flop.

52 min: Suetman1 (Ah Kc) and ThePunk75 (Ac Qc) call TresStooge’s short-stack (SS) all-in with (7s 7d). After the flop of [Ad 6d 8d], all the money is in for all three players. The turn gives TresStooges the win, and put the hurt on ThePunk75.

Now a rush of exits by the Break Monster!

57 min: Absea98 (15th) (AQ) is removed by the now hot TresStooges (AK).
58 min: ThePunk75’s (14th) bad luck continued as his SS shove with (A9) is out-pipped by Suetman1’s (AT).

59 min: Merhibka (13th) runs into Odds2win777’s quad fours!
60 min: SS LittleRedElf (12th) – missed it getting the other results.

1st break:
Tommydoo 4970
TresStooges 4815
Sirgash 3080
Odds2win777 3048
Tomservo2 2270
Suetman1 2085
BKrywko1 1690
Derf-63 1418
Mikeniks-Faldo 1070
BigDaddyTman 620
Nixi44 434

65 min: Derf-63 (11th) (AK) loses his coin flip to Tomservo2 (JJ).

61 min: BigDaddyTman (10th)bubbles as he runs into Tomservo2’s quad 4’s!! That is two sets of quad fours tonight!

68 min: Suetman1 gets smacked down again as her (AA) loses to Tommydoo’s flush. As BigDaddyTman put it earlier, “All that slow chip building work – for nothing!”

73 min: A cruel end for TresStooges (9th) as his (AK) takes the lead on the flop [K] over Odds2win777’s (77), but the turn brings another [7].

82 min: A SS Nixi44 (8th) with (22) is double teamed by Sirgash (AK) and Tomservo2 (A8) and an [8] on the flop wins it for Tom.

A long battle ensues now for twenty-four minutes with four players all taking turns coming back from SS elimination. Take a guess which of the four is first to lose. You would be correct.

106 min: Mikeniks-Faldo (7th) has to go with (6d 5d) and a [5] on the flop. But there si also a [9] and Suetman1 holds (A9).

110 min: But a still SS Suetman1 (6th) has to go with (AT) and she runs into Odds2win777’s (AA).

2nd break:
Odds2win777 9667
Sirgash 5670
BKrywko1 4735
Tomservo2 3021
Tommydoo 2407

130 min: BKrywko1 (5th) goes card dead. Welcome to Faldo’s world. I’ve always been that way.

131 min: A SS Tomservo2 (4th) has to go with (KQ) runs into Sirgash’s (A6).
138 min: Tommydoo (3rd) Sorry, I missed it.
139 min: Sirgash (2nd) moves in with (Ad 9d) and Odds2win777 calls with (QT) and hits a [Q] on the flop!

Congratulations to Odds2win777 on his 4rd NPP win!

Standings on the right side of the blog!

Here's the weird e-mail that came from Faldo's account this morning...them crazy Nigerians are at it again, heh!:

Apologies for having to reach out to you like this, I made a trip early this week to London, UK and had my bag stolen from me with my passport and credit cards in it. The embassy is willing to help by letting me fly without my passport, I just have to pay for a ticket and settle Hotel bills. Unfortunately for me, I can't have access to funds without my credit card, I've made contact with my bank but they need more time to come up with a new one. I was thinking of asking you to lend me some quick funds that I can give back as soon as I get in. I really need to be on the next available flight.

I can forward you details on how you can get the funds to me. You can reach me via email or May field hotel's desk phone, the numbers are, +4470240629744 or +4470240629745.

I await your response.
Nik Faldo

Oh yeah, and Congrats to Odds on winning Tuesday, as well - well done, sir!

I apolgize everyone, but I did not do anything wrong - like visit bad sites - like porn or Democrat-liberal sites.

I simply answered and email to someone requesting to join our league. I replyed that I needed a name and a PS handle.

I guess that is all it takes now a days.

In my usual Mr.Warm and Friendly demeanor, I have to say that castration,
followed by being staked on a Red Ant Hill,
followed by eyes taken out with a plastic spoon,
followed by forced listening to Harry Ried and Bill Clinton lie-fest speeches for hours,
and then death by slow roasting over burning tires,
would be the best way to handle these spammers.

Forgive me for being such a softie on them. But I am just too forgiving sometimes.

Damn,I sent $$ to London for Faldo. I thought he was in trouble again.

Thanks everyone, just checked the blog for the first time to see about getting more details on how to send Faldo some money in London to get his ass back to the good ol USA.
