Derf-63 Wins His 4th NPP Tilt – Absea98 Clinches the NPP Finals Seat!
It was a grand night with a little bit of everything. New players, returning players, surprising missing players and one player on a roll at the right time -Derf-63! The total was twenty-one.
And Katy Perry was on hand to sweater Faldo, fetch him drinks and give him massages.
Ok, to announce the players as then entered NPP.
Ok, announce the Final Table.
Ok, I just wanted to use the picture.
We started with nine (9) players with a chance for the seat. Absea98, Derf-63, KingBing420, LittleRedElf, Mikeniks-Faldo, Suetman1, T3chlady, ThePunk75, and Tigercub8189.
We welcomed two new players: Aatramp and BogusAl. Welcome and please send an email to npokerp at yahoo. Thanks.
Also Duder1123 returns to see what he can do to stir things up.
On to the NPP action:
11 min: Theedouble*d (21st) gets all-in with (KK) after the flop, but Derf-63 (QJ) flopped two pair. A quick double-up has Derf in the hunt for the seat.
15 min: BogusAl (20th) gets the usual NPP welcome as his (A7) and flopped two pair lose to Derf-63 and his flopped two pair (A8). Yes the flop was [A78]. Derf is on a roll.
21 min: K9isadog (19th)
22 min: Messinagirl1 (18th) Some bad luck here of late.
23 min: Suetman1 (17th) falls victim to the red hot Derf-63, as he has a higher flush! Wow! Sue is out of contention for the seat.
40 min: Meatsword (16th) loses his coin flip with (QQ) to Derf-63 with (AK) and an [A] on the flop! Make that white – hot!!!
42 min: ThePunk75 (15th) The Punk is out for the seat.
44 min: Tomservo2 (14th) and Nahanni74 (13th) are double-teamed in four-way action (twss) and lose to Duder1123’s flush.
45 min: KingBing420 (12th)
50 min: Gnosis1970 (11th) and Douge2 (10th) are double-knocked out on the other table and Faldo is at the final table!
Unfortunately, I am not only short-stacked (twss), but of the five (5) people I need to beat to win the seat, four are to my left! Thanks a pant load, PokerStars!
53 min: LittleRedElf (9th) goes with (T7) and a flopped two pair, but loses to Duder1123’s (AA) when the board pairs 9’s. Elf comes up short for the seat.
Get it? Short for the seat? An ELF…short for the seat! Never mind.
60 min: Break Monster at work as Tigercub8189 (8th) loses with (AK) when Aatramps hits his flush. Tigercub also is out of the running for the 1st seat in the NPP finals.
I am woefully short-stacked, all the people I have to catch have position on me…..and I am wearing sunglasses in my dark basement.
61 min: A short-stacked T3chlady (7th) has to go with (A8) and loses to Duder1123’s straight. The Lady will not win a seat this night. Faldo is down to 520 chips.
66 min: A SS Mikeniks-Faldo (6th) makes his last stand with (A2) but Derf-63 pairs his king. No seat for Faldo.
The scene is now set. Derf-63 has to win with Absea98 finishing 5th. A tough task since Absea98 has the chip lead at the time. Let’s see how it plays out. It takes a while.
84 min: Duder1123 (5th) gets ousted in a double-team and Absea98 clinches the 1st quarter seat in the NPP Finals! But Derf-63 presses on in search of raising his total NPP point total …..and winning money!
98 min: Pre01 (4th) goes with (AK) and loses to Derf-63’s (QQ). Still hot! But getting even hotter!
101 min: Aatramps (3rd) goes with (KK), Derf-63 calls with (JT) and rivers the straight! Ouch! Nice run by the newcomer!
Heads up: Derf-63 28000 - 3500 Absea98
105 min: Derf-63 27300 - 4200 Absea98
110 min: Absea98 (2nd) has to go with (K2) and runs into Derf-63’s (66).
Congratulations to Derf-63 on his 4th NPP and to Absea98 on winning the 1st seat in the NPP Finals!
