Absea98 Wins His 4th NPP Tourney!

A nice win by Absea98 in a 14 player NPP night. That is his 2nd win this quarter and his 3rd this year! Absea has really picked up his game. Nice job Ab!

Derf-63 took the early lead, Suetman123 made a great comeback, and Absea98 just steadily got it done.

These longer blinds are making for long final table battles. What is everyone’s opinion of that?

On to the action:

4 min: T3chlady (14th) runs into Derf-63’s straight.
18 min: ThePunk75 (13th) ran into Tommydoo’s aces and LittleRedElf’s flush – back to back!

34 min: The hand of the night! Well, it was for Faldo. A short-stacked (SS) Mikeniks-Faldo (12th) is card dead, but finally hits an Ace-high flush with his (AT) on the turn. The river pairs the board and LittleRedElf (11th) hits a 2’s over kings full house with (22). But Derf-63 has (K2) and has the kings over 2’s full house.

41 min: Wingsfancurt (10th) bubble the final table.
45 min: A SS Bblbtt (9th) is double-teamed by Derf-63 and Tomservo2.

75 min: Tommydoo (8th) has to go with (K8) and a flop of [KK6] but Derf-63 has (KT)!

1st break:
Derf-63 7235
Tomservo2 3989
8thmile 3235
Suetman123 2150
95corolla 2040
Absea98 952

73 min: KingBing42- (7th)
91 min: Tomservo2 (6th) has (KT) and hits a pair of kings, but Suetman123 has (KJ).
94 min: 95corolla (5th)
97 min: A SS 8thmile (4th) loses to Derf-63.

2nd break:
Absea98 13117
Suetman123 4610
Derf-63 3273

130 min: A SS Derf-63 (3rd) goes with (A2) and runs into Suetman123’s (AT).

Heads up Absea98 13600 Suetman123 7400
130 min: Absea98 14900 Suetman123 6100
135 min: Absea98 14700 Suetman123 6300
140 min: Absea98 6500 Suetman123 14500
145 min: Absea98 8500 Suetman123 12500
150 min: Absea98 17000 Suetman123 4000

The total point standings are on the right side of the blog! Remember the top 3 point getters in this 12 round league get a seat in the NPP Finals!

And also remember already [qualified players] are not counted and Faldo is not eligible for the final. So plenty of chances to jump into contention for a seat in the Finals!

Getting HU with bigger stacks is better for the players than simple games of high card, but that's just me talking as a fan of deep-stack tourneys.
