BigDaddyTman Wins His 3rd NPP Event!

He would have more wins if he was able to play more. A nice steady diet of creative poker was played by BigDaddyTman against the other sixteen who made it to the NPP felt tonight. As he was kind enough to point out, this is not an easy group to wrestle chips away from, but he did it tonight.

In addition to welcoming back BigDaddy (and letting him have his way with us – twss), we also saw the return of Duder1123. Duder picked up points his first night back too.

I was as pleasantly surprised with the returnees as I was disappointed by the point getters who were no shows tonight. A missed round wins you exactly a free "zero" points.

Playing the tourney… usually...I say usually gives you a better chance of getting points. I’m just sayin’.

Oh well, it will leave the NPP final seats up for grabs until the end and nobody has pulled away yet.

On to the action:

29 min: Derf-63 (17th) runs into Tomservo2’s three aces!
36 min: Absea98 (16th) sees his (88) run into Mikeniks-Faldo’s (AA).
39 min: ThePunk75 (15th) sees his (JJ) run into Tomservo2’s (AA).

(AA) held up pretty well tonight - all night!

45 min: Bblbtt (14th) loses with a king high flush to Wingsfancurt’s ace high flush! Ouch!
47 min: A SS Kingbing420 (13th) has to go with (KT) and a flop with a [T] and runs into BigDaddyTman’s (AT).

51 min: A SS LittleRedElf (12th) has to go with (A9) and is called by Tommydoo’s (Kd Qd). A [Q] hits the board.

1st break:
Tomservo2 5807
BigDaddyTman 5307
Wingsfancurt 4444
T3chlady 2665
Tommydoo 1878
Duder1l23 1325
K9isadog 1284
Mikeniks-Faldo 995

65 min: 95corolla (11th) with (QQ) gets run over by BigDaddyTman’s straight.
72 min: Douge2 (10th) blinds out for the 3rd straight week.
73 min: A Ss 8thmile (9th) has to go with (88) but runs into Duder1123’s flush.
75 min: Two short stacks collide as Mikeniks-Faldo has to go with (KQ) and Tommydoo (8th) has to call with (AJ). Tommy hits a [J] on the flop, but Faldo hits a [K] on the turn!

87 min: Wingsfancurt (7th) hits a flush but Tomservo2 hits his full house!
90 min: T3chlady (6th) hits two pair, but loses to BigDaddyTman’s trips.
94 min: K9isadog (5th) has to go with a two pair but Duder1123 hits trips.

2nd break:
BigDaddyTman 12227
Tomservo2 7099
Mikeniks-Faldo 4286
Duder1l23 1888

102 min: A SS Duder1123 (4th) hits his ace with (A6) but Tomservo2 has (A9)!
130 min: Mikeniks-Faldo (3rd) with (AK) hits a pair of kings but BigDaddyTman has (AA).

Heads up BigDaddyTman 15000 Tomservo2 10500
150 min: BigDaddyTman 17900 Tomservo2 7600
155 min: BigDaddyTman 13700 Tomservo2 11800

160 min: Tomservo2 (2nd) gets killed by back to back (77) of BigDaddyTman! Tom first has (AK) and a board of [69K], but then an [85] runner-runner for the straight and Tom is crippled.

The next hand, Tom has (T9) and can’t win the coin flip. Oh well, that’s poker!
