ThePunk75 Wins His 10th NPP Tourney!

Some things never change. Who is left standing to go for the win?
This is the same movie I walked out on in April for crying out loud!

We welcome one new player (I think) Tommydee804 (unless it is Tommydoo in disguise), but either way Tommy, I need your email.

Only eleven signed up to play the opening round tourney of the 19 signed up for the league so far. I expect more to be in the fray next week.

The scoring is much different in the Home Game set up on PokerStars.net

Emphasis will be on finishing at the top, rather than making final tables or surviving at the final table. Points will be awarded only for the top 20% of the participants.

I did slow down the blind structure, so the need to play bingo poker is less. I figured we would get enough of that with it being play chips anyway. But watching the play this first night, it looked pretty much the same. Tough!

We will try this for the rest of 2011 and make an evaluation after this 12 game league.

On to the action:

10 min: Faldo gets hurt early losing flush over flush to KingBing420.
24 min: BKrywko1 (11th) The play chip software does not have re-play or hand history, so if I don’t see it live, I won’t have it. BK was at the other table and I couldn’t follow the action.

26 min: Wingsfancurt (10th) loses a coin flip (AJ) to LittleRedElf (88).
43 min: Mikeniks-Faldo (9th) loses a coin flip (99) to the same KingBing420 (AK).
53 min: Tommydee804 (8th) gets double-teamed by T3chlady (AK) and the winner, Derf-63 (QQ), who takes it down.

1st break:
ThePunk75 6883
LittleRedElf 3390
T3chlady 1997
Derf-63 1619
KingBing420 1442
Absea98 649
Duder1123 520

68 min: T3chlady (7th) has to try with (T8) and a flop of (8 5 2). But LittleRedElf wakes up with (55).

70 min: Duder1123 (6th) blinds out having never played a hand.

73 min: A short-stacked Derf-63 (5th) goes with (AQ) and runs into Absea98 with (AK).
Derf missed the early action due to meetings, but got in to give it a shot.

75 min: KingBing420 (4th) moves in with (AJ) to find ThePunk75 with (JJ).

80 min: LittleRedElf wins a nice pot and our three remaining players, ThePunk75, LittleRedElf and Absea98 are all within a grand of each other!

94 min: Absea98 (3rd) sees his (A4) run into ThePunk75’s (AQ).

Heads up: LittleRedElf 5500 ThePunk75 10000

100 min: LittleRedElf 1500 ThePunk75 14000

105 min: LittleRedElf 5500 ThePunk75 10000

110 min: A SS LittleRedElf (2nd) calls down with (A3) and a flop with an [A] in it, but ThePunk75 is holding (AK).

Congratulations to ThePunk75 on his 10th NPP win, as he moves past Nahanni74 on the all-time list!

1st – ThePunk75 – 4.82 points
2nd – LittleRedElf – 3.40 pts
3rd – Absea98 – 2.78 pts
4th – KingBing420
5th – Derf-63
6th – Duder1123
7th – T3chlady
8th – Tommydee804
9th – Mikeniks-Faldo
10th – Wingsfancurt
11th – Bkrywko1

Take heart everyone. All of the point getters but ThePunk75 already have seats in the NPP Final. Missing week 1 didn't hurt anyone really. ThePunk got a leg up (twss).

Thanks for getting us back to playing poker Faldo! It was still fun, even with play money.

Great playing cards again with this great group of guys!
